Tonal Wind

'Tonal Wind' by Sound of Essen will sweeten up and add character to your wind sounds. With lots of whistling, squeaking, howling and singing wind, this modular library is the perfect construction kit for creating otherwordly swirls and heavy storms.
 
  • Weather Tonal Wind Play Track 51 sounds included, 75 mins total $33

    These sounds will sweeten and add character to your wind sounds. Lots of whistling, squeaking, howling and singing wind. From low rumbles, mid honks to harsh high frequency blows, this modular library is the perfect construction kit for creating otherwordly swirls and heavy storms.
    The sounds were recorded at the windorgan in Vlissingen(NL) in Zoutelande(NL) and in Essen(GER).

    In addition to the original wind sounds creating tones on objects, you will get a few rattling flagpoles, waving flags and singing flag cords. And some bonus windmill sounds.
    Also 2/5th of the sounds are delivered in stereo, the focus is on mono sounds. I captured the very sweetspot where the wind created unique tones. To focus on these rare events, I mostly used a single spot mic. In winds up to 48 mph you will have carefully selected mic positions for a broad variety of wind torturing different objects.

  • This library includes a series of cinematic and basic whoosh, movement and transition effects.  It also includes a number of impactful drops.

    What makes this library unique is the varied amount of content and processing techniques used to create the movement effects.  Some effects are created totally organically, others manufactured with analog synths and others creatively processed from nothing other than atonal noise.

    Another great quality of these effects is a natural doppler effect is often incorporated.  This was done by re-recording some source elements and either moving the source or the mic itself.

    A slim library, of 127 sounds – it feels much larger in the amount of varied content that it includes.  This library is one I've personally used a lot and I'm very happy to bring it to you now!

    • Organic Whooshes
    • Designed Transition Effects
    • Tonal, Atonal and Noise asthetics
