  • Punchy Transients is an organized toolbox that serves as a reliable source of ”layers of impact” which many, many sounds do require to be in their best fit. It is also a trusty stash for designers who need to save some time to focus on something else.

    The library content was made by recording a collection of hits on a punching bag using many techniques. Also, a dry version of each sample and a folder of bonus thumps are included.

Latest sound effects libraries:

 

  • Here a library of one of the most active volcano in Europe: The Stromboli.

    The actual sound library contains 73 sound recordings for a size of 2.6 GB.

    Eruptions were recording mainly from three distances:

    • at 200m of altitude and 1,3km distance from cratere

    • at 400m of altitude and 1km distance from cratere

    • at 850m of altitude and 500m distance from cratere

    I stayed here one month to manage to have the most diversified eruptions that offer Iddu the volcano. A friend who accompanied me did beautiful shoots with cameras and drone. You can have a look to the video. This project brought us to another one, that’s coming up in the next months, a type of documentary about the whole island and his inhabitants.

    So in the future I will add more sounds of Stromboli, the city, the people, the sea, the animals, the ambient etc… that you could listen and download for free on my website.

    I wanted this sound library focused on the eruptions, but I put also a few recording of the waves and water because they sound particularly strong and they suggest the volcano’s sound: All the island is little made of “fresh” lava’s rock, that make every impact very resonant in the bass frequencies.

    This library contains also a few ambient of the island, his city and his surrounding nature. And some roomtone corresponding to the place where I recorded the eruptions.

    All recording made with the Nagra VI. Neumann mics, audio technica MS and Micromix amp for some specifics recording.
