Sound Ex Machina has released the Baby Sounds library. It includes 160 HQ (24-bit/96kHz) indoor recordings of newborn, infant, toddler laughs, sighs, screams, whimpers, giggles, and cries. All captured in real-life conditions, over a 14-month period.
In addition to the pre-speech vocalizations, you'll find cute recordings of a suckling pacifier, baby farts, breathing, breastfeeding and sneezing that will help your foleying character become more realistic and lifelike. Overall, the collection caters to projects in need for authentic newborn/ infant/ toddler boy vocal expressions.
This library can be used to dub a character or serve as unique source of inspiration in the process of designing new creature. The sounds were captured using stealth recording techniques only. As one might guess, such methods don't always render the results that controlled recording environments do. That said, post-production and curation have worked wonders for this library.
The cultural/language identity of this library is non-specific, making it adaptable and suitable for universal use. Each sound has detailed Soundminer metadata, that can be read by various applications and services, making it easy to locate and edit. The sounds are royalty-free and licensed to you under this license agreement.
