    One of the greatest cities in the world, New York is always a whirlwind of activity, with famous sites at every turn and never enough time to see them all.

  • Whooshes Swish & Whoosh Play Track 5300+ sounds included $39

    Swish & Whoosh is an extensive high quality collection of organic light and hard swishes and whooshes. The library consists of 62 individual objects ranging from a small metal sieve to a medium sized didgeridoo and covers fast, slow, fast multiple and slow multiple articulations.

    The main reason I recorded this library was to create a library that covers not only the normal and fast swish whoosh sounds but also the more subtle, minimal soft sounds that are usually missing from other commercial sound effect libraries. The library also comes with bonus content: 22 minutes of metal slinky sounds, including slinky laser sound effects.

    Swish & Whoosh was recorded with Sound Devices 702 and a XY stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040 microphones in acoustically treated studio environment. The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools. For example pitching down the didgeridoo and plastic tube hollow item sounds by two octaves I found really cool and useful low drone sweeps.

    You get the sounds in two formats: 96 kHz, 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz, 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

    Objects included:

    Badminton Racket • Baking Paper Sheet • Beach Bat • Big Drum Stick • Cardboard Box Lid • Cardboard Box • Cleaning Duster • Cloth Large Flag • Cloth Leather Piece • Coat Hanger Metal • Coat Hanger Wood • Cricket Bat • Didgeridoo • Dish Brush • Drum Stick • Floorball Ball • Floorball Stick Large • Floorball Stick Small • Horse Whip • Jump Rope Breaded • Kitchen Knife • Leather Belt Light • Leather Belt • Magazine • Metal Frying Pan • Metal Grater • Metal Sieve Large • Metal Sieve Small • Metal Slinky • Metal Spatula • Microphone Windshield • Paper Sheet • Plastic Box Lid Large • Plastic Carpet Beater • Plastic Cord Taped End • Plastic Cord • Plastic Fruit Squeezer Juicer • Plastic Garbage Bag Large • Plastic Garbage Bag Small • Plastic Mouse Pad • Plastic Pipe Small Angled • Plastic Pipe Small • Plastic Shoe Spoon • Plastic Swim Fin Flipper • Plastic Tube Hollow • Plastic Tube With Metal String • Plastic Wire • Plastic Vuvuzela • Pom Pom • Rope Light • Styrofoam Ball Large • Tennis Racket • Tin Foil Sheet • Umbrella Large • Violin Bow • Wood Branch Large Leafs • Wood Branch Large • Wood Branch Small Leafs • Wood Branch Small • Wood Rack • Wood Stick • Wood Strip Small

    Bonus content:

    As bonus content you will get over 22 minutes worth of recordings using the legendary metal slinky! The bonus content covers swishes, rattles, stretching and collisions. And as mentioned, I also recorded light and heavy metal slinky laser zap sounds (technique made famous by Ben Burtt in Star Wars movies).

  • This is a unique bicycle library that captures this characteristic bike in clean, quiet, nicely performed true exterior rides. Including multiple perspectives, speeds and actions. From fast passbys on asphalt to slow onboard recordings and smooth stops.

    The UglyBike is a typical old bicycle that’s working fine, but needs some TLC. It is a bicycle that’s just average, a little rattle a gentle scrape, a bike that everyone has had but got traded in for a newer one. A story of unrequited love.. :)

    Speeds and actions:
    Three speeds. Departures from slow, medium to fast getaways. Arrivals from slow stops with gently squeaking handbrakes to heavy stuttering skids.

    Five perspectives:
    1. Onboard Front: captures the whirring tire and surface sound.
    2. Onboard Pedal: nice overall combination of pedaling, crank creaks, chain rattle, tire and surface sounds.
    3. Onboard Rear: close up sound of the rear axle, with chain, sprocket and switching of gear.
    4. Tracking shot: mono recording of the passby, keeping the bike in focus while passing by.
    5. Static XY shot: stereo recording of the passby that emphasizes speed.

    Overview of perspectives and mic placement:

    Onboard recordings are 2-3 minutes long depending on speed. Higher speeds > shorter duration.
    All 3 onboard mics are edited in sync with one another to make layering easy.
    All Passbys, Arrivals and Departures move from Left to Right.

    Metadata & Markers:
    Because we know how important metadata is for your sound libraries we have created a consistent and intuitive description method. This allows you to find the sound you need easily, whether you work in a database like Soundminer/Basehead/PT Workspace work, or a Exporer/Finder window.

    However, we are aware that some people have different needs for different purposes, so we’ve created a Metadata Reference Guide that explains the structure. And because we’ve automated the metadata proces, you can be confident that a ‘find & replace’ command will always replace all instances.

    Download our Metadata Reference Guide

    If you have any questions about this, contact us!

    Additionally, we added Markers to some wave files, so specific sound events are easy to spot in Soundminer or other database apps.
