Default Re: New Sound FX Library!

The independent sound community returns with 20 new sound effects libraries here:

For sounds of nature, gear up for winter with the chilling snow and ice textures, take a walk through lush nature loops, or create tranquil gurgling soundscapes.

For specific media, we have ethereal sounds of the cosmos for sci-fi soundscapes, dynamic anime motions, a female British detective voice collection, a diverse library of magical spells, and a fun retro pixel game sound effects pack.

For the gearheads, we've got the rumbling purr of a Honda Transalp XL750 motorcycle, a nostalgic 2006 Kia Ceed compact car, and detailed interior car ambiences while on the road.

If you are looking for Foley and textures, check out the rhythmic hums of a mechanical pencil sharpener, the clickety clacks of buttons and switches, realistic sounds of bowling, fun popping toy foam blasters, haunting wind and metal, diverse modern and antique doors, and creative textures that transform everyday objects into instruments.

And if you need that perfect whoosh, we have soaring transitional whooshes, as well as a massive collection of whooshes that covers everything from magic and sci-fi to vehicles and character movements.

Two new HISSandaROAR libraries released!
From an actual independent sound library business


Our crash test dummy has been falling over a lot recently – mostly outdoors. He’s been falling over on the driveway,
the lawn, concrete path, in gravel and into bushes, ferns, branches and forest debris. A few ‘body drags’ were also
recorded on gravel, as useful elements.
Some falls down a flight of stairs also created some great thumpy interior tumbles & falls.

It’s hard work throwing around a 20kg boxing bag wearing overalls, augmented with pumpkin, potatoes,
a pool noodle and some gloves. This is the third evolution of this method...

Check out the making Of vid:

This library is based on an idea I came up with while working on the film THE WARRIOR’S WAY
which involved a lot of Samurai sword fighting action. We recorded swords chopping & slicing vegetables,
but there were so many decapitations in the film I wanted more variety…
And more grit! Especially when needing to ‘cut through’ loud action music!

What I found was that slicing a sword through sand produced an interesting sound,
which could be varied depending on the sword or object used and the texture and density of the sand.
For this library I expanded the concept.

After recording a range of weapons on location in a sand dune, I then collected up
buckets full of sand, fine base metal, gravel and tiny stones and recorded them in my foley room.
Slowly grinding a sword into gravel sounds excruciating, especially imagining it augmented with some
Vegetable Violence squelch and/or Slime Moves.
I also recorded versions after wetting the sand and gravel…
And those stabs and slices sound even more gruesome!!

- Sennheiser MKH8020 pair sheltered LR behind the wind shield
- Sennheiser MKH8050 sheltered centre behind the wind shield
- LOM Geofon on chassis, capturing rumble.

The surfaces driven on include:
- up & down my driveway, scraping plants & bushes
- suburban driving 0-50kmph (0-30mph)
- suburban arterial route driving 50-70kmph (30-45mph)
- highway driving 90kmph 55mph
- gravel road driving 0-50kmph(0-30mph)

If you're someone who wonders why people bother recording at high sample rates,
check the FFT at the link below, captured with Sanken CUX100K microphones at 192kHz.
Note how the spectrum of the sounds goes way past human hearing at 20kHz, and past 50kHz right up to 96kHz...

This is a little sample from a new HISSandaROAR sound effects library:

UFX032 PRESSURE Stop Release

This library is an idea found while working on a different library, experimenting with
negative pressure (ie suction) and positive pressure. I noticed that when some rubber sheet
or plastic suddenly blocked the suction, it created a solid ‘thump’ when pulled free.
The rapid release of pressure seemed interesting and lit up my subwoofer!
So I collected up all the accidental pressure suction stops & releases from those recordings
Then I set about exploring this one specific technique, purposefully restricting suction and then
restricting positive pressure from my compressor, creating very sharp transients and spectrum up to 96kHz.
As with IRs and convolution, the ‘noise’ aspect of the sounds means they respond strongly to processing.

If you'd like to have a play with these sounds, I've launched a little sound design challenge
Using 5 x 192kHz sounds provided, make something extraordinary & send me a link!
I'll give away as many copies of the full library as there are extraordinary entries.

Deadline June 16th!
