David Parker recorded some great stuff during a silent film showing at Pacific Film archive.
I wonder if it made it into the Amedus library that was sold off by SZFC. (Sound Ideas?)

Great! Charles is right, quiet crowds do seem to be pretty sparse in the library world (no pun intended). I needed a bunch of that for a seminar scene recently, and if I hadn't been fortunate enough to requisition my daughter's a cappella singing group for some group walla, I'd have been hosed. Forge on! (and do it in 4.0 )

Can't help with the crowds, sorry - we all mess with our vowels too much in this country to be any help....
but if you need to blast those quiet crowds with a ray gun or something I might be able to help!



SPRINGS is a new library of.... well.... springs!
Struck, bowed, bent out of shape, crashed, twisted, bounced and

SD010 SPRINGS | HISS and a ROAR

Sooooooo true.... *sigh*

Renec - if you were serious in your post about making a silent crowd collection, please, please keep us updated.

If not...... for once, I'm willing to beg!!!

Wow Tim! Incredible stuff! That's a goldmine of source material for sound design, etc. I'll probably be getting that collection very soon.

I think you should do big and small sizes and also perspectives from inside the crowd and outside the crowd. Different sound depending on where you are positioned.

Wow - I may have to start calling you Father Christmas now, renec.... ;D

My biggest problem is usually medium to large sized rooms:

* speeching (party- or funeral-... had both this week ) in a loungebar-style place, prolly something like 12m by 8m... about 8 to 12 listeners (budget cuts - skimping on extras, so not a lot of folks turn up for their parties these days ). Both sitting down and standing up....
* had a smallish courtroom recently, about 15 people.... problem was, it was actually pretty dry for its size, funnily enough....
* the worst: weddings at the town hall: medium room with carpets and wood panelling, mayor speeching; anything between 5 and 15 peeps sitting in and listening, pretty close to camera. Nightmare with the null atmos I have available. Managed to save the day with a bit of leather and wood sound (supposedly from the chairs they were sitting on).

Exteriors: bystanders at accidents, crime scenes etc. Fine when the extras are a bit lively, so you can get away with a voice or two, but when they're just standing there and watching, on close cam.... argh.

The above is just to give you an idea. To sum it up: for me personally, the biggest prob smallish groups, in medium size locations, and as JSt0rm said, in different perspectives.

But hey, I'll be happy with anything I can get, so please go with the majority - larger groups will probably be in great demand for others, as will large rooms and halls.
And I'm an easy adapter.

Thanks, Father Xmas!

Well, don't call me anything until we deliver.

A library like that would obv take a fair amount of experimentation to find out exactly where the best movement/stillness ratio lies for useable stuff.

Once that balance is figured out, it would then take a while to coordinate access to different crowds and venues in order to get the recordings.

That said, I've got some ideas on how to pull it off and I have a lot of unique access to venues and crowds through my peripheral contacts that I can tap into.

It isn't a library that could be created very quickly IMO, but it is a library that could be created.

lol - well, the sheer idea that you would even attempt the task ranks you pretty high on my name-calling list - positive ones, that is.

But you're right, deffo a difficult and time-comsuming job....
No worries, I for one have battled on for many a year (never ask a lady her age ) with what I can get hold of - so take your time.
Happy anticipation is highly underrated.

What a coincidence, I just recorded some at my daughter's middle school winter concert. Essentially I just edited together all the dead air in between songs...there was about a 10-15 second gap each time.

It was hard explaining to other parents why it was such a valuable recording!

There are some really great libraries posted here, which are really great for games and movie FX ! Thanks guys, there is a lot of stuff I have been looking for in the above listings.

For some small game title I'm looking for some animal (may be comic style or voice acted) sounds for a bunch creatures and animals. These will accompany some cartoonish styled animals based on some themes. The first themes are farm and jungle.

Does anybody know some good (affordable) libraries on this type of fx ?

Merry Christmas to all !

Presenting North Country Trains HD Professional Sound Effects Library. 117 High Definition diesel train beasts from the wilds of North Idaho. Recorded at 24Bit 96kHz at various locations in the pristine panhandle of Idaho.



Included in this collection are pass bys with and without horns, cranky rail car movements, under bridge perspectives, slack take up metal impacts, screeching wheels, locomotive engines, horn blasts and much more.
Many perspectives were captured to give you a wide variety of source to work with. Recorded almost entirely with the Sennheiser MKH-8040ST microphone for incredible low and high frequency sound design flexibility. On occasion a Sony PCM-D1 and D-50 were used on the “oops, I forgot to bring my Sennheiser MKH-8040ST” recording sessions.

My goal in creating this sound library was to capture the “essence” of the trains as they made their journey though North Idaho. The combination of the diesel engines, electric motors, wheels and friction against the rails creates an amazing sound that’s unique for every train. The trains in this set can be used for more than just simple train sound editing, they can also be twisted around to create metal bridge collapses, cargo ships sinking, spacecraft bys and hums, etc. The slack take up impacts are perfect for augmenting an explosion, gigantic robot footsteps or futuristic door slams.

I logged over 200 hours during a 2 month period traveling around with my gear chasing trains. I never really knew when a train or multiple trains were going to be passing through the area and sitting and waiting in the freezing cold temperatures for hours on end was an experience to say the least. After a while I began to notice a pattern around midday when the four railroad corporations train beasts were going to converge in town. On some days, I also could hear the distant horns when it was whisper quiet and jump in the SUV and beat them to my favorite locations and quickly set my gear up. In the end, it was worth all the time and missed trains because I had a great time, learned a lot and met some great railroad workers.

Does anyone have a library of fine debris sounds (not fine as in good quality, fine as in almost sand like). It takes a lot of effort to get good recordings of this and you can never have enough!

yeah, that's going to be the tricky part for phase 2 of this. I think I'll have everyone bring a book to read.

Also, I put these recordings through the speakers as soon as I was done and they sounded freaking great IMO. Stereo's officially out of style. Quad or mono ftw!
