Free DSLR Collection From SoundBits
Whilst I was on the SoundBits site I noticed they have a free collection of DSLR sounds generated with a Canon EOS 5D (MkIII), Canon EOS 6D and Nikon D5100. Lots of fine clicks, slides and mechanical sounds from all those little switches, dials and buttons. The perfect source for interfaces, buttons swtitches and small mechanics.The sounds also fit perfectly as percussion sound FX. This library was created in collaboration with Tobias Mochel, who is a photographer and image artist from South Germany.
Make Music From Sound Effects
Why always using typical music instruments and percussions? The track was created just the sounds in the “Just DSLR” library. Yes, even the melodic instruments were created by jsut using these sounds. Designed with Celemony Melodyne and played with NI Kontakt.
HISS And A ROAR Release SWISH TWO
Eighty four props combined with two months of recording equates to some very sore arms and some seriously great sounds! While the original SWISH library focused on cutting the air, SWISH TWO diversifies somewhat. Natural dopplers were captured using five bull roarers, two aerophones, feather dusters, whips, umbrellas, flags, rubber strips, tree branches, three slingshots & a LOT of projectiles, leather jackets, bamboo, wind chimes, bells, perforated metal strips, heavy duty art paper, a tape measure and a stack of other props... All larger props were recorded on the huge quiet foley stage at Park Road Post, while smaller props were recorded in the Plimmerton basement foley studio & slingshots recorded late one calm quiet Sunday night…
You can watch the SWISH TWO making of Youtube video.
Tim Prebble has captured multi channel audio using combinations of Sennhesier MKH8040 ORTF stereo, MKH70 stereo and MKH8020 microphones with over six hours of multitrack audio available as either 28GB of 24bit 192khz audio (15GB download) or 14GB at 96khz (7.5GB download).
If you are very quick you can still make advantage of the early bird discount and get SWISH TWO for $99 but it finishes on April 20th. After that it will be the normal price of $179.
