This year we ventured across the Atlantic to capture the soundscape of ‘the city that never sleeps’ – New York, USA. Spanning across the island of Manhattan, and beyond, this collection captures a wealth of sounds from New York’s most iconic parks, streets, shops, stations and tourist hotspots – all recorded in 5.1 surround at the highest quality, 24 bits, 96 kHz.


With almost 100GB of material, this library is the most detailed, thorough and complete collection of sounds from New York on the market. This answers the calls from sound designers, engineers and post-production gurus from all over the globe to be able to faithfully reconstruct an audible representation of the city that never sleeps.
