Default Re: Whooshes!

I use various wooden rods with different lenghts and diameters from the hardware store. Then I "swish" them past various mic sets at bunches of different speeds.... THEN... I process to taste. I like "breathy" "deep" wooshes vs "higher pitched" "tighter" "Swishes"....

Whooshes are my most requested effect! There are so many different types and ways to use them. I don't usually use things straight from libraries, but I will find elements like fire or wind to add to a whoosh effect. I also like to use a flanger plugin for some of the bigger whooshes. I have also made whooshes using the Structure sampler and the envelope controls. You can drop little sound elements into the sampler and play them with a keyboard.

I bought a bunch of PVC pipe in various sizes, cut them to different lengths and miked them.

I also play different wind, noise, tones through a decent speaker and do a pass by of a shotgun mic. Record that, process it...or not and you can get some great stuff.

Also, if you have a good size room, tie different objects to a thin rope and swing it around at multiple speeds. You can get some really interesting sounds.
