Elements: Glass Sound Effects

Elements Glass Sound Clips Library

The Elements: Glass sound fx library features over 500 clips of bursting brittle glass panes, fragile crashes, crackling shards, toppling glasses, shattering hits, and squeezing glass debris.

We took a five-pound hammer, a crowbar, a cinder block, a mallet, and even our feet to deliver Foley justice to thick, thin, and large panes of glass, drinking glasses, and glass debris.

The clean clips are tightly trimmed to help you place clips quickly to compliment your sonic compositions. Three microphone perspectives (close, medium close, and medium distant) provide flexibility to match your scene. The Elements: Glass bundle also includes punchy sound design drops and hits, as well as layered hits and crashes. (Full details below.)

  • 48 kHz, 24-bit stereo WAV files.
  • 563 megabytes.
  • Professionally recorded, expertly mastered, and lovingly curated.
  • Instant, secure download.
