MEDIEVAL LIFE - Boom went out to some of the most authentic medieval heritage sites in Germany, recorded tons of sounds and we’re happy to present to you just the perfect tool kit for all kinds of medieval background soundscapes you’ll have to deal with in the future: MEDIEVAL LIFE – your go-to collection of medieval sound effects featuring hundreds of different sound sources from the medieval times within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT and a great collection of completely pre-designed and ready-to-use medieval places within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – DESIGNED edition.

Let’s get straight to the point: This collection is an incredible high-quality time-saver that you’ll never want to miss again. Creating rich and vivid medieval background sound atmos like a market place or an encampment can be really time consuming as you have to find and include numerous different sound sources and place them within your stereo or surround environment.

This is where MEDIEVAL LIFE DESIGNED starts to save you precious time.
You’ll get 50+ ready-to-use, completely pre-designed medieval places like campsites, construction sites, farmyards, courtyards and market places. All of them in different sizes, multiple variations and long enough to loop them without sounding repetitive. What, you have a surround environment? We got you covered. All sounds come in stereo and 5.0 surround. The Middle Ages is one of these eras that can give our imagination wings like no other. With this collection you can achieve this. Just drag and drop the MEDIEVAL LIFE - DESIGNED sounds in your project and let everybody feel the vivid atmosphere of the dark age.


MEDIEVAL LIFE DESIGNED offers you more than 50 ready-to-use files in 96kHz/24bit stereo WAV and again the same sounds as 96kHz/24bit 5.0 surround WAV files.

Close your eyes and imagine the manifold sound atmosphere of medieval locations. Imagine farms with cackling chickens, the mowing of sheep, the noise of trotting horse hooves, the opening and closing of old doors and an axe chopping some wood in the background. In the cities and castles, imagine the echoes of distant persons, the shouting of street vendors, the rattling of iron chains and the constant hammering of the blacksmith. We have recorded the sound of this historical era for you with all its facets.

Let’s get on a time travel to the medieval times with hundreds of authentic source sounds from that era. Our MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT holds a multitude of medieval sound effects to create an exciting audio experience for all the gloomy or bright medieval affairs you have in mind.

MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT is a real treasure when it comes to quickly designing the background ambience of a movie or game scene. As the sounds are meant to create a convincing background soundscape, the source sounds were recorded in distance to the microphone to capture the original medieval environments and to provide you with a nice open room environment right from the start without having to add complex synthetic reverb or impulse responses.


Most of the sounds were recorded in authentic medieval environments in Germany. We went out to visit medieval heritage sites like ruins and castles. For the market place recordings we went to farmers markets around the cathedral in Mainz, Germany that was built around 975 A.D. A perfect place to capture the spirit of medieval market places.

On our trip we recorded the hard life of people living in this era. We recorded medieval farm sounds like animals, mechanics of old tools, maids cooking on fireplaces, hurly-burly on marketplaces, blacksmiths hammering metal and working with wood, church bells, voices and almost every medieval sound you can imagine.


MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT with hundreds of single stereo source sounds from the categories ACTION, CRAFT, ANIMAL, WORK, VOICE, MECHANIC as well as hundreds of LOCATION recordings (most of them in Stereo, Ambisonic A-Format and 5.0 Surround) has a size of more than 45GB. All files come in 96kHz/24bit HD sound quality.

Inspire your audience with the unmistakable sound of the life in the Middle Ages.
