After our Black Friday special edition last week, money may be a little short and so this week's Sunday Sound Effects Round Up has a common theme of free sound effects from Airborne Sound, A Sound Effect and Boom Box Post.
Airborne Sound Release Free Sound FX Library - Jet Airliner Fly Bys
Jet Airliner Fly Bys is a free collection from Airborne Sound features jet airliners screaming by overhead from left to right.
- 30 sound clips (track list).
- 96 kHz, 24-bit stereo WAV files.
- 445 megabytes.
Includes 19+ fields of metadata in 4 formats (Soundminer, BWAV, MacOS Spotlight, ID3v2).
7 types of passenger jets with a variety of engine types provide a mix of textures from grinding and groaning to whooshing and wailing. The sounds include fly bys at medium-slow to medium-fast speed at a close perspective. A few extra medium distant takes are also included.
You could use these clips as airport vehicle effects, or as building blocks for sound design transitions or whooshes.
