New Sound FX Library!
I just bought a copy of a sound effects library from a new company started by sound designer Tim Prebble! I think the concept and idea behind his way of releasing these effects is great and a big step forward from the traditional approach with libraries! The download options range from free CD quality samples through to 24bit 96k with loads of repetitions/variations of the sounds! Anyways, I find it's a nice and fresh approach so thought I'd share it!

Check out the first release Vegetable Violence:

Re: New Sound FX Library!
Definitely exciting - we just bought the first volume last week and have already used it in one of our shows. An excellent value...

I totally agree about the website! Great site and probably pretty handy sounds as well... I will definitely have a closer look at the stuff.

Re: New Sound FX Library!
Great second library Tim!!!!

I'm gonna have to get it, just to support this idea of distribution, PLUS one can always use different swishes to mangle.

Can't wait to see what's next!!

I've just released Library 3: SEAL VOCALS


If you know anyone working on a zombie movie (or any creature vocals)
then you should definitely check it out.... and failing all else grab yourself
a copy of the free library!

Hi Tim,

Is that a Condenser Cabbage, or a Dynamic?

I've used a Condenser, but can never get the balance between "crispy freshness" straight from the refrigerator, and allowing the fresh cabbage sufficient time to acclimatise so that Phantom Power isn't an issue.

What do you recommend ?

subbasshead 06-10-2010 02:41 PM

Re: New Sound FX Library!

its a phantom powered cabbage

the important trick when wiring up cabbages is to use wire wrapping, as cabbages react violently to the heat from soldering and you would not want to get bitten! (see wikipedia: cabbage zombification)

Re: New Sound FX Library!
Yeah, worse than a Killer Tomato I should Imagine.

Is all this freaky reanimated fruit and veg laying around, the cause of your Sumatran Rat-Monkey infestation down there?

I now have all three the libraries - BEAUTIFUL - I wish all sound libraries were done in such detail and scope - WELL DONE TIM!:D:D:D:D:D

Check out the new library: SD005 PRESSURE

Re: New Sound FX Library!
Although I'm usually quite suspicious when someone's first post on a forum recommends a product or service this does look intersting. Not least as I have recently had conversations about working on a zombie movie.

rhumphries 11-23-2010 10:24 PM

Re: New Sound FX Library!
Tim's stuff is really very good and reasonably priced. He's also a regular contributor on other forums. Let your suspicions be put to rest.

Subbasshead - unless you're using multiple logins it wasn't you, but Enos. Number of posts : 1. Only post : here's something great you can spend your money on.
I'm not suggesting there is anything necessarily untoward in that, but it's the sort of post that makes me suspicious of how impartial the OP is.

Ah right, sorry

Re: New Sound FX Library!
I've just released a new sound design library on HISSandaROAR.com

Re: New Sound FX Library!
I'm pleased to announce the launch of my new site Film Sound Effects.
This is a vintage sound effects library that I've been busy restoring and contains a huge variety of sound effects covering categories such as transport, atmospheres, weapons, crowds and more to come.
Originally set up by re recording mixer Gerry Humphreys (BladeRunner,Italian Job) and sound recordist Peter Handford (Out of Africa,Hope and Glory) in 1966 and recorded by Peter on analogue Nagra, the entire library spans some 5,500 effects that are a wonderful example of his work.
I hope to continue adding more sound effects to this label in the near future.

very hot metals or physically manipulating objects on dry ice, this is a sound library with a very diverse
and unusual range of tonalities..
