Thanks! It was a real joy to record. That little bot can provide such wide variety of sounds and really is a nice centerpiece to the SMALL MOTORS library.

To expand on this and probably be a separate library but how about metal on dirt, metal on metal and metal on pavement and cement. We could also use plastics on these surfaces.

Also, has anybody compiled a list of great sites that sell sfx libraries? I feel like many of you probably have more than you know what to do with, haha.
Here's a list of indie library sites:

some of them were licensed by Sound Ideas in the 6000 series..... They are generally pretty giant sounding...

EFX guns are also in the Sound Ideas "Guns" library. Yeah, they generally are big and fat sounding.

Hi everyone,

My latest library is now available.

Ultimate Snow SFX Library Released!

The Ultimate Snow Sound Effects Library contains 300 of my best snow sounds recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz over the last 4 years during some of the most fridged and snow-packed North Idaho winters I have ever seen. Included are snowball impacts, large chunks rolling down hills, snowbanks collapsing, snow sliding and falling of roofs, gritty movements, smooth scrapes, footsteps, bodyfalls and mountian climbing foley.

The Recordist Ultimate Snow SFX


Thank you,

Frank Bry

Wow, ya there are tons of great sounds there. But damn, I never realized how expensive those things can be .

How do you guys usually do it? Buy in bulk? or search for specific sounds you need for projects? As a soon to be graduated college student I don't exactly have a ton of money to spend, haha.

I tend to buy general sfx libraries when they're on sale, and the more specific ones when the need arises. Eventually your collection grows pretty large, to where you don't need to buy too much, but then great specific libraries come out (like the ones listed in this forum), and you start buying again. Also try to record (anything) as much as you can as well.

This kind of sounds requires a lot of time investments (right place at the right moment), a lot of tricks (wind traps), and a lot of hardware (windshields etc.), so IMHO the BT serie is quite cheap in this regard.
Making a wind recording has nothing to do with making a door recording or the such, it's way more complicated.

It depends on the budget for the project. As a sound editor you should aks for a budget to buy additional sounds. Unfortunately, in France for example, it's shrinking every year (thanks to those sound editors using "cracked" sound libraries and giving them for free).

In this case, just use Creative Commons licensed sounds (freesound.org), or do your own recordings, but please respect the work of sound engineers that spent a lot of time doing these sounds, and therefore the price they are asking for them.

Bye.

I definitely understand that they're worth the value, I'm just saying it's not something I can afford. Thanks for the input, guys.

I do some recording, but not as much as I'd like. Often the time allowed and the budgets on the projects I work on these days don't really allow for it. That's why these libraries are such great resources. It would cost me a lot more to go out and record this stuff myself.

My Dogs Sound Library is now available:

Chuck Russom FX*|* Dogs SFX Library

Dogs features vocalizations from 14 professionally trained animal actors. This collection includes barks, whines, yelps, growls, snarls, and sounds that I can’t even begin to describe. Dogs was recorded and mastered at 24 bit 192K. Delivered as 158 24 bit 192K metadata-embedded wav files. 24bit 96K versions are also included.

I've also written a detailed behind the scenes article for Sonic Terrain:

Bang! Top of my List!

I hope that means no more "SI 6003 55 04 dog mixed breed" :-)


This must have been a lot of work.
I guess you have dreamed in dog vocalisations during your editing phase.

So I had a bit of downtime and took the opportunity to work on a little robot that was cut from Iron Man 2.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/732672/mega_...ound_redux.mov

I used a lot of our new libraries in this piece The Machine gun is Tim's fireworks. All of the servos and small motor sounds come from Rabbit. I used impacts and slides from the recordist and chuck. So I think I represented all of you in this lol.

I also redid a chase scene from the island (Micheal bay). The one where the giant axles or train wheels are bouncing all over the highway. I think its really cool but I hesitate putting it online as its copy written work. It was more for exercise and to cut effects in a A,B,C,D,E 5.1 subgroup format.

I love this thread, but it'd be pretty useful if the first post was updated with all the sound effects libraries featured throughout to save sifting through all the posts if you're looking for a library fast??
