One could say that it is not Boom Library´s intention to make things more silent or to suppress a sound. Especially when the company name is BOOM Library. But this SFX library is targeted at a special sound sector. There is a particular group of persons that doesn’t want to give up a high quality sound setting for their preferred working equipment – suppressed weapons. These sounds are for the silent killers, the special agents, the hitmen, the Special Forces, snipers, hunters and anyone whose profession is to remain silent but in a convincing way and at the best possible sound quality. And you as a sound designer are the one that can make it come true.
Boom Library teamed up with the company that produces the world’s best suppressors - SilencerCo in the USA, leader in gun silencers innovation and recorded a gigantic arsenal of different suppressors and weapons. Their new library SILENCERS is the key to future suppressed weapon sound – or to be more precise: to what will be left of weapon sound.
When it comes to suppressed weapons shooting, be it single shots or heavy gunfire, improvising now comes to an end. SILENCERS SFX library enables you to create individually fitting sound signatures. Including extensive sound recordings for 8 pistols, 11 assault rifles, 6 rifles, 4 shotguns and 2 submachine guns, this collection is the elaborate answer to tonal immobility. You’re given a large pool of resources of suppressed gun shooting material containing weapons such as the Pistols Glock 23, Walther PPK, HK USP 9, the Assault Rifles AK47, HK 416, Sig 55, the submachine gun HK MP5, the Shotgun Benelli M2 and many more. No matter what your blueprint may hold, no problem – you’ll find your equipment in this well-sorted toolbox.
To make sure to have the right ammunition for your upcoming projects: arm yourself with SILENCERS and be prepared to hit the target – be it an action movie , video game, thriller, a military report or any war scenery, SILENCERS is the suitable equipment that will help clearing the environment of unnecessary noise and create a clean soundscape. Sharp, tough, stringent – but oh so silent.
The SILENCERS DESIGNED weapon sounds come as pre-designed, “ready-to-use” SFX. You’ll get perfectly mixed silenced gun sounds that will save you precious time and energy when it comes to time-critical projects. Each weapon shot comes in three styles.
MECHANIC: The sound focus lies on the mechanics of the weapons. The sound is cold, uncompromising and very close.
REALISTIC: This version is for the purists. The most realistic and well-balanced sound of a suppressed weapon.
RICOCHET: The most characteristic version. You hear the typical high-frequency fizzle of a suppressed weapon shot.
Each file contains 4 versions of a shot to ensure flexibility and alternation. Get your hands on more than 400 high quality SFX delivered in more than 100 files.

What´s the difference between Silencers Designed and Silencers Construction Kit?
A "Construction Kit" title consists of thousands of plain source recordings, with a lot of variation to provide a maximum of flexibility to every user. It is so often the case that as a sound designer you need a lot of similar basic sounds in order to do several sound variations.
The “Designed” editions are complementary to the Construction Kits. In a way they are highly usable demos of what is possible with the concurring Construction Kit. All sounds in the “Designed” editions are designed by only using content from the “Construction Kit”.
If you need a quick solution, you grab some high-end sounds from the “Designed” edition and if you need something unique, you go for the “Construction Kit”.
