We're Very happy to announce that we now have 12,000+ sounds available for purchase on AudioJungle! Woohooooo! Each week our library of sound effects and music tracks grows and we are proud to have reached this new benchmark. It represents many hours of diligent, creative hard work but we have enjoyed every minute of it.
Check out our current portfolio on Audiojungle.
Looking forward to adding new and creative sounds to our current library. Thanks for checking out our sounds! If you have a suggestion for a particular sound you need please feel free to email me from the About page. Happy to help if we can.
This is my youngest grandson Cameron holding my Fender Strat. I have a nice collection of various instruments and Cameron loves to hold my guitars and pretend to play. The neat thing about this guitar is most likely it will be his one day. I promised his dad (my son-in-law) that I would pass it on to him one day. Hopefully his dad will keep it in the family and pass it on to Cameron in time.
The Fender Strat is one of my go to guitars to use when producing rock related tracks. It's a great guitar and certainly one of my favorites! Go Cam!
Out of 10,000+ creators Audiojungle selects a featured creator each week. We are delighted to have been chosen for this week and that automatically puts us in AudioJungle Hall of Fame. We're closing in on having 12,000 sounds on AudioJungle and each week our library grows. We have our productions on several sites but AudioJungle is by far our best platform to sell our sounds. Thanks Audiojungle for the shout out!
This past week I spent a week with my family down at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. This was our 40th year in a row that we've spent a week of July there. We have made many memories through the years and it's extra special to now have our 6 grandchildren enjoy the beach with us. I have four sisters and they came with their children and grandchildren and we also have cousins from the Atlanta area who join us each year. It's quite a large group when we all get together! I usually take my recording equipment and try to get a few sounds each year. This year I recorded a nice rain/thunderstorm one evening.
This sound is available for purchase on AudioJungle.

This past week I took a trip to Santee State Park in Santee, SC for a few nights. Santee State Park is right on Lake Marion, which is a large, beautiful Lake surrounded by lots of wildlife. My back yard is pictured on the left and it reminded me of a scene from the 60's TV show "Gilligan's Island". It was very swampy and I can only imagine how close a gator or two were from my cabin. On my trip I got to see a couple of armadillos, some wild hogs, deer and fox squirrels.
Each night I would set up my recording gear to get some night sounds including sounds of the frogs croaking away.
Take a listen to the frogs below. This sound is available for purchase on AudioJungle.
Old Brunswick Town is an old pre-revolutionary fort on North Carolina's Cape Fear River. It's about 15 miles from my home and I enjoy an occasional trip there for visit. Today I went all by my lonesome for a nice walk and I took along some recording gear to capture some sounds. Fortunately, there was only a few people there and I had the fort practically to myself. I was able to capture several clean ambiences. There was a nice breeze blowing and it wasn't too hot. I can only imagine what life was like there back in the early 1700s. A lot has changed but it's a nice place to visit, reflect and ponder life!
Take a listen to one of the sounds I captured. This sound will be available for purchase on AudioJungle within the next few days.
I promised I would share the final workbench/vice restoration project I've been working on the last few weeks and here it is! Though it's not a large workbench it works well for me. I'm very happy having my Dad's old vice restored and mounted. Also, the drawer on the right contains wood from the kitchen drawers that were in the home I grew up in. We used to keep our telephone book in that drawer (remember those?}!
This table is solid as a rock! That red oak is quite heavy and made a beautiful workbench. I enjoyed the process of building it and it's something that I can use and cherish in days to come.
My workbench is progressing nicely! I'm getting real close to being able to put it all together. Since this is being made out of Red Oak it is going to be SOLID! Hope to finish it up within the next couple of weeks.
On Monday while I was working on it I set up my recorder and recorded various sounds. After I got home and cleaned up I mixed a few different tracks together to create a woodworking workshop background.
Take a listen below. This sound is available on Audiojungle.
I finished restoring my father's old vice this past week. Though it's not a perfect restoration I'm very happy with it! Now I'm building my workbench which I'll mount the vice on. Hopefully I'll have my bench completed within the next couple of weeks.
The photo below shows an almost completed top for my workbench and one of the legs being glued. My friend Jim Page gave me the wood (red oak) to build my table. Thanks Jim! Also grateful to my friend Bill Smith for the use of his shop and his wood building expertise..
Listen below to a sample of the vice being used. This sound will be available on Audiojungle soon.
In the 1970s and 80s I used a portable cassette recorder to record various things including lots of sound effects and life experiences. I have amassed quite a collection of retro cassette tapes and it has been time for me to digitize all those recordings. So I went online and found this portable cassette player/recorder that will automatically put your tape recordings onto a thumb drive. I also took advantage of having it to record lots of typical sounds you would get with a portable cassette player/recorder. These sounds are now available for purchase on Audiojungle.
Take a listen below to some cassette tape player sound effect samples.
