Gunscapes HD Professional SFX Library Released
Presenting the first stage of Gunscapes HD Professional SFX Library. As many of you might know I have been working on a gun sound effects library for the last 3 1/2 years. At this moment I feel there is enough material finalized and ready to let loose. This has been a massive undertaking and I am very happy with the results so far.
The sound produced by guns here in North Idaho is quite unique and that is how I came up with the name of the library… “Gunscapes” A majority of the guns I recorded produced what I call a “Gun Landscape” style of response. If this sounds strange, then maybe it is. The reverb tails from the guns in many of the locations I recorded can be used as stand alone design elements or layered with other gun sounds you may have on hand to create the gun sound effect you desire. Lush, full baodied, echoey, bouncy, tight, sharp… it’s in there. A majority of this collection was recorded with multiple microphones and some were recorded with just a single stereo microphone setup. (Sometimes I spontaneously tagged along on mountain expedition trips with expert shooters and could only bring one stereo microphone rig).
Large caliber rifles, shotguns, pistols, machine guns and assault rifles were recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz. Included are “processed” versions along with the original “source” files. Having the processed versions allows you to quickly “drop in” a gun sound if you have a tight deadline or you just like the sound and it works for you. There are a multitude of various “pumped up” sounds that were derived from the source and multiple takes were mixed and mangled to hopefully give you a broad pallet of sounds to sculpt you masterpiece. As with the source files you can layer the different multi-microphone processed files together for maximum impact.
I have many more recording sessions planned over the next few months and will be adding some suppressed weapons to the collection very soon. A product update email will be sent to all purchasers and all that has to be done is download the new .zip file and add to the others in your library.
There are two things I would like to mention:
1. This sound effects library comes with what I call “Forever Updates”. One of the great aspects of living here in North Idaho is I can record the sound of guns almost anytime I want. Whether it’s out in my own field or on a mountaintop, I will be recording. So, as more guns are recorded, they will be added free of charge. I hope this is OK with you.
2. This library is fielding requests. If you have the need for a certain type of gun sound, let me know and I will do my best to get it recorded and added to the library. -Frank The Recordist - SoundBox HD Pro - Gunscapes High Definition Sound Effects Library
