Power Station Library

Hey guys, I've always been one to check gearslutz for glorious useful information but never actually posted in a thread, so not sure if I'm just replying to Tim's scaffolding post or starting my own!

Anyway, my friend Luke Gentry and I have just put out our 4th library under the name Colossal. This time it's a coal-fueled power station we shot last year in England. It's a great library and we're really proud to make it available.

Hope this comes in handy for you!

New Library - Polystyrene Destruction

Hey All,

Decided to fill some lockdown time with making a new library!
Took various tools and my hands to loads of polystyrene and smashed/tore/sawed it to bits and this is the result.

Very therapeutic, highly recommended!

Out now on A Sound Effect and 50% off for the first week, kept the price pretty low as it's only a little library, good for foley/gore stuff and hopefully for sound design too as there's lots of high frequency content in there. Included a few designed sounds too.

Would love to see someone with more time and better mics than me take this idea and do a much bigger/more comprehensive library. Maybe I'll do it myself when I have the inclination.

Here's the link if you're interested, thanks!

Siemens velar rus library

The Siemens Valero is a high-speed train that is an engineering marvel and a staple of modern high-grade national and transcontinental rail transport, with various versions zipping across the UK, the EU, Russia, and the far reaches of Asia including China. This is a train capable of 290 kilometres per hour (180 mph), it is the high-speed joiner of distant cities such as Moscow and Saint Petersburg. For our recording project, we captured it across a comprehensive range of its speeds. Sennheiser Ambeo microphones were used throughout.

Recordings were made inside carriages, inside a compartment, down gangways, across the ever-dramatic space connecting railcar vestibules, and also less glorified but vital locations, e.g., the loo. All relevant background sounds are there, including door movements, passenger chatter, objects in motion, and the sounds of the restaurant car. For the characteristic sounds of a great ‘iron horse’, inside and out, this is it. Flysound… Putting the ‘track’ into soundtrack!

BMW 760i

The car is a beast and we recorded it in all its beastliness, at varying speeds from its soft metal purr to its ferocious roar, on the test track, inside and out, with all the very best equipment. From many angles, we used the following microphones: Interior – Neumann U 87 and Sennheiser Ambeo; Engine – Schoeps CMC6 MK4, Neumann KM 184; Exhaust pipes – Electro Voice ND 868, DPA fastening; Outside points – Sennheiser MKHs 70 & 416, and also again the Neumann U 87. If your project needs the sound of a great car, recorded in a great way, get it here.

African Grey Parrot

In African Grey Parrot, get a musical collection of parrot vocalizations from Myrtle the parrot. Hear short squeaks so adorable I couldn't help but smile and powerful clicks that sound like alien languages. Hear visceral screeches that could cause nightmares and playful whistles so musical you'd think she had a tune stuck in her head.

This library offers you a collection of sounds from a fascinating species. I didn't know one parrot could make such a wide variety of vocalizations and it was a joy to hear them for the first time as I got to know Myrtle over several sessions. I hope you enjoy them too. Thanks for listening.

SHED IMPACTS is a new HISSandaROAR mini Sound FX Library
recorded by disturbing the peace & quiet of COVID19 lockdown.

While working on prep for a greenhouse I noticed big clods of heavy clay
sounded amazing slamming into an old bunker wood shed...
Next step: surround it with microphones & exhaust myself firing dirt at it!
For this 2GB library I ended up recording three different sheds,
with EXT MKH8040 pair and INT MKH8020 pair and MKH8050.
Along with complex metal impacts and debris, there are also very solid
earth thuds useful for body falls, large scale foot stomps etc...

I'm super excited to announce, that all Systematic Sound Libraries have the newly developed Universal Category System standard implemented with product updates v1.1.
The UCS is an efford to find a standard of categorizing sound effects. This will give the user the power to find things faster and work with more precision, thus getting better results in less time.
It is a big chance to establish an unified language for sound metadata and file naming convention that should be adopted by as many SFX vendors as possible. That's why I wanted to support this effort as an Early Adopter and implement this standard into my products as fast as possible.
There will be an in depth user tutorial on my site later this week, but for now feel free to check out the product details:

Hzandbits Sound Effects just released Aiports & Planes - a collection of 48 recordings from busy airports and plane interiors.

Airport & Planes was recorded between 2015-2018, in airports from Rome to Qatar, and in a variety of large capacity commercial passenger craft.
It presents modern air travel from the passenger perspective, covering everything from airport shopping areas and security checks, to
taxiing, takeoff, cruising and landing - with and without passenger walla, rummaging with luggage compartments and seat belt buckles.

It was all recorded stealth style, but nevertheless delivers lots of different perspectives and variation. Room tones from airplane interiors
come in different timbres (read: flavors of background noise), ranging from the tonally dry and flat, to rumbling and wheezing.

Some of these interiors are free of passengers talking, so can work well as neutral room tones.

Check it out: Airports & Planes

Hi folks - I just released 4 new libraries - all sounds are UCS-compatible:

is 4 hours / 7.74Gb of rain on many surfaces. 113 separate files - recorded in 24bit/96kHz.

Just like with my wind recordings, I have recorded rain where it hits something that makes a distinctive sound, something with a bit of character, rhythm or feeling.

You will find rain on man-made materials, as well as vegetation, and even a couple of rain recordings from Sri Lanka and Tokyo. These have been released previously in their own libraries, but I thought they were both interesting and generic enough to do some good here as well.

Out now at - Rain

Sri Lanka Ambiances II,
a new set of field recordings from this island nation in the Indian Ocean. This time, you get sounds from the mountain town of Ella and the ancient capital of Kandy. Plenty of South East Asia vibe, with traffic, birds, insects and of course people.

You hear the train slowly snaking it's way through the mountains to Ella, occasionally blowing it's whistle. There is also a recording of religious recitals through squawking horn speakers, reverberating between the mountains.
Or the office clerk working a mechanical typewriter in central Kandy.

Out now at - Sri Lanka Ambiances II

Tuk-Tuk Ride,
features onboard recordings of a Piaggio APE 50 3-wheel scooter doing taxi-duty on the island of Sri Lanka.

The 71 clips are categorized according
to whether the vehicle is accelerating, decelerating, cruising, etc.

Out now at - Tuk-Tuk Ride

Sri Lanka Bundle,
is all 3 Sri Lanka-themed sound libraries at a reduced price.

TONSTURM 25 Switches, Buttons And Levers

Our new SFX sound pack,

We are running an early Bird discount until the 29.09.2020!

Over 12GB of sounds, recorded in 96kHz 24bit.

Get it here:

You need them every day: Switches, Buttons And Levers.
From vintage switches to modern buttons, from huge rusty levers to small rotary knobs, we got out to record a wide range of them so you are settled for every scenario.

We scouted for devices that had the most interesting sound character to them. We visited a prop warehouse and picked all the devices that appealed sonically to us.
We also went to a train museum to deliver you heavy and massive sounding levers and switches and inbetweens.
Sounds you will love using in your sound design.

To give you a wide range of flavors every sound was recorded with three different microphones. Changing from set to set.
The setups included the following microphones: Sanken CO-100k, Trance Amulett Piezo, Schoeps MS set with the extended body, Schoeps Cemit, and the Sennheiser MKH 8050.

When possible, we recorded at different distances, or with different mic patterns, so each sound is provided in different styles and transient proportion.

As a quick go to option we included a mixdown version for each file - combining the best qualities of each microphone.
Last but not least a photo of each recorded device is added to the artwork of each sound file so it will show up in your Soundminer search.
