Minimal Audio Releases Emerge SFX Library (WINNER ANNOUNCED 🏆)


Minimal Audio releases Emerge, a diverse cinematic SFX sound library for musicians and budding composers.

We’re taking a closer look at Emerge and giving away the entire Minimal Audio product range to one lucky BPB reader (big thanks to Minimal Audio for sponsoring the giveaway!).

Minimal Audio Emerge

Emerge is available right now at the introductory price of $49 (usually $79).

Minimal Audio spent over six months creating, recording, and processing content for Emerge. The pack is a collection of over 750 sound effects that are the result of meticulous attention to detail.

The 750 sounds include One-Shots (240), Impacts (94), Textural Mutations (176), Atmospheres (92), and Future Synthetics (183).

I tend to get more excited about cinematic content when it comes to sound packs, and Emerge is certainly cinematic.

From the ground up, this project was designed to be epic. Recording sessions for Emerge weren’t exactly typical; they went between recording studios, junkyards, and abandoned buildings.

Sometimes, things like recording in an unusual location can seem more like a gimmick and less beneficial to the project. However, in this case, I think it’s very fitting.

Emerge is a forward-thinking sound pack, but the picture it paints is that of a dystopian future. That’s why those industrial locations lend themselves well to Emerge and add to the authenticity.

Obviously, as with most sound packs, you can find multiple uses for Emerge, which means it’s not purely for film projects. But, for me, cinematic sound design is where it offers the most.

The Future Synthetics, Textures, and Atmospheres are the best; in my opinion, they are stunning.

With futuristic sound packs, there’s always the risk of sounding a bit cheesy. You can often end up with a bunch of over-used 80s sci-fi sounds (which can be great in the right context) or overly chirpy and cheerful SFX.

That’s why I like the dystopian nature of Emerge; it’s gritty and edgy. It doesn’t limit you to a project that’s all doom and gloom, either. You can also use Emerge to create cool, modern tracks that won’t sway the listener’s emotion too much.

Here’s how Minimal Audio describes the Emerge sound library:

“Immerse yourself in a world that blurs real and imaginary, where space is torn by mind-bending sounds with earth-shattering weight. Emerge fuses organic material with futuristic sound design to give you a massive variety of hyper-textural audio.

As the result of a six-month exploration of sound, Emerge is the distillation of extensive recording sessions and processing techniques. We collected material from junkyards, modular synths, foley sessions, and much more. The audio was carefully processed, layered, and polished into a powerful collision of organic and synthetic sounds.”

The thing I like most about Emerge is that it makes me think of my favorite movie soundtracks, which makes me want to make music right now.

The total size of the pack is 3.6 GB, containing 785 24bit/96kHz WAV files.

If you are a soundtrack lover, Emerge by Minimal Audio deserves your attention.

Minimal Audio is still relatively new on the scene, and so far, I like the outside-of-the-box thinking they have shown. Be sure to check out their recently released Rift Lite plugin, too.

Congratulations Al F!

I would like to personally apologize for the delay with the giveaway winner announcement (and the lack of BPB articles in the past week). I had to take some time off to sort out some urgent personal things (nothing serious), which is why BPB wasn’t active for these past few days. I’m fully back on track now, so expect more epic content soon.

As always, thank you all so much for being a part of BPB! ❤️

  1. This is so tough, I can’t pick just one. It’s a toss up between Last Of The Mohicans, Lord Of The Rings, and Inception.

  2. “The Last Temptation of Christ” (1988) by Peter Gabriel, released in expanded form as “Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ” in 1989.
    Some others worth mentioning: “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” (1966, Ennio Morricone); “The Mission” (1986, Ennio Morricone); “Forbidden Planet” (1956, Bebe & Louis Barron); “Blade Runner” (1982, Vangelis); “Stop Making Sense” (1984, Talking Heads); “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968, various); Pulp Fiction” (1994, various).
    And, while it’s not a movie, but the soundtrack for the video game “The Last of Us” (2013, Gustavo Santaolalla) is absolutely cinematic.

  3. Bernard Clarke


    Blade Runner: the blurring between what exactly is sound and what exactly is music by Vangelis has never been bettered

  4. 1st Harry Potter movie.
    actually don’t like the movie this much, but as a composer John did an incredible job imho

  5. The Equalizer (Harry Gregson-Williams’s 2014 score). Super slick sound design, some awesomely aggressive sounds to mirror Denzel Washington’s ass-kicking nature, and for some reason I just usually love HGW’s melodic/harmonic tendencies.

  6. Back to the Future. A great original score and perfectly chosen songs, plus all the little eerie noises were awesome

  7. Off the top of my head, The Mummy (1999). The movie itself was kinda sub-par, but the music brought out a sense of seriousness and epicness that helped me feel immersed in the “world” they were portraying.

  8. Ghost In The Sell
    Andrei Tarkovskii’s Stalker
    Co-starring works of Musical Golden Age’s Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers
    Sound of Music
    – There are many other things.

  9. Blade Runner soundtrack by far. Or even something from the “Alien: Isolation” videogame. Thanks for these contests!

  10. Kind of tough to choose one out of so many, but the one out of them would be Interstellar especially its theme music.
