New Sound Lab Release NSL014 Wheels And Gears
Tor Johnson from New Sound Lab has been in touch to say that they have just released NSL014 Wheels and Gears which features a collection of bicycle tyres, freewheeling, gear and chain recordings.
Two bike models were recorded: A Specialised Carve Expert (mountain bike) and a Bianchi Campione (city/road bike). A wide range of sounds were recorded, from conventional bike sounds (such as freewheel clicks, gear shifting and chain movements, acceleration with various speeds, coasting, and disc brake movements) to more experimental sounds, creating unique sound effects using various found objects on the tires and spokes (such as cardboard, wooden sticks, fabric, shoe soles, guitar picks, and paper).
Recordings were captured with a Sanken CSS-5 Shotgun mic. The shotgun microphone was mounted in a full Rycote windshield kit and connected to a Sound Devices 702 recording at 192khz. The contact mic recordings were captured with the Barcus Berry 4000 Planar Wave system.

Undertone Sound Library Release Grassland Prairies And A Quad Pack Collection
Undertone have gone looking for more wide open places with sparse life again. As a Supervising Sound Editor, Tom Hambleton appreciates that because he can add life where necessary sparse beds are more versatile. But if you listen closely, these places are still teaming with life. Grass blowing, crickets, bird songs, bird calls. This is a small but high-quality collection of recordings on a hot day in August of 2015 in Southern Minnesota and Tom tells me that this is a great complement to the Prairies and Small Forests 1&2. Also they will be adding complementary collections to their Prairie libraries covering various times of year, but for now they wanted to get this little package out there.
Grassland Prairies is available in stereo or Quad formats for $30.
Undertone are also offering a nice package deal called the Quad Pack which includes 4 of their Quad Ambience libraries for $125. The package price will save you $35 off of purchasing the 4 libraries separately. What is even better is that if you have already purchased at least 2 of these and ask about a pro-rated deal. The 4 Libraries included are…
- Prairies and Small Forests 2 – This is a beautiful collection of long stretches of prairie grass life just in front of a small forest.
- Young Forest in Spring – A great basic canvas for outdoor scenes. There is some branch movement, but very little to no leaf sound and sparse bird life.
- Winter Forests – Many of these recordings have a great frozen stillness to them, but listen long enough and you’ll hear the subtle shifts of the winter world.
- Grassland Prairies – Recorded on a hot day in August, these places are teaming with life. Grass blowing, crickets, bird songs, bird calls.
