Sonomar Collection: Abandoned is a sound effects library of 346 haunting atmospheres and recordings from deserted locations.

Armed with a wide range of stereo and ambisonic microphones, the Sonomar team ventured into the dark, capturing the sounds of three distinct abandoned buildings across Canada: an asylum, a prison and a hospital.

Add authentic textures imbued with the acoustic properties of desolation and emptiness to your projects, or manipulate them as source material for creative sound design.

This collection of sound effects includes 24 ambisonic recordings (also available in stereo) as well as 17 additional 5.1 surround sound files created from the source content.
