new sound effects armor ice wind bowls motion Asbjoern Andersen


If this last week’s new libraries were woven into a storyline, you would hear an exciting tale of a hockey player who leaves the sport to travel to the windy mountains of Jerall to fight Orcs. But after stumbling upon the Greybeards and fancying their peaceful ways, our hero decides to stay in their mountain sanctuary and meditate to the sound of droning bowls (plus, he can capture some pretty sweet impulse responses in High Hrothgar). Or, in other words, it’s time for a brand new SFX roundup :)

Ice Skating
 
  • Environments Ice Skating Play Track 1000+ sounds included $39

    'Ice Skating' is a very comprehensive library of 1000 audio files from the realm of ice skating.

    It encompasses a broad variety of sounds using different skating techniques and features many ice skating activities such as hockey games, figure skating, free skating and more.

    Most of the recordings have been made in an outdoor setting to reduce reverberations.

    Almost all of the sounds were recorded using a M/S technique with AKG C-414 and Rode Nt5, and Sound Devices mixPre.

    This library presents unique focused sounds that have been edited meticulously making them easier to integrate in any audiovisual project or interactive program.

    The rare distinctive quality of these recordings also allows them to be a base for
    any sound experimentation through a creative process; and can be layered with other sounds or treated in order to produce interesting sound design.

    A couple of Ambiences are also included in the library. These are ORTF stereo recordings of outdoors/indoors skating.

    Like every other sound library from Articulated Sounds, the files are embedded with metadatas (Soundminer/iXML/XMP/BWAV/ID3).

We may finally be out of winter, but Articulated Sounds wants to keep us chilled. 'Ice Skating' features cold weather activities such as figure skating, free skating, hockey and more. These sounds are masterfully crafted for all the scrapes, scratches, pushes, drags, and glides you could need. Plus, with winter ambiences, stick slaps, footsteps, cloth sounds and puck hits, too, this library is ready to be implemented into your film or interactive project.
 
Dx
 
  • Audio plugins & tools Dx Play Track 888 sounds included $28

    This library is a bit different from the rest.  Dx (“Diagnostic”) is a grouping of different audiometric and audiological elements in a neat, diversified package.  Our goal was to aggregate audio tests from multiple disciplines and build them into a one-stop-shop collection that most sound designers, engineers, researchers, and artists could utilize as a mainstay in their audio toolbox.

    In this collection you will find sets of: binaural beats, audiometric sweeps, full frequency sweeps, multi-spectrum noise, spatializations, resonance tones, impulses, dynamics tests, intermodulated distortion tests, aliasing tests, phase tests, and a few fun examples just for kicks.

    These diagnostic sounds are provided in 96kHz/24-bit, 48kHz/24-bit, and 44.1kHz/16-bit resolutions.  There are various length and loudness combinations as well, so you don't have to edit these files to use them for their intended tests.  That being said, this diagnostic audio can also be used very quick and precise ways in layered SFX designs.  Because they are so specific in their development, they can be used with an automatic mathematic disregard…and that, is a good thing.

    Quick, clean, and precise.  Enjoy.

Eiravaein Works wanted to give us something different, something useful for sound designers, engineers, researchers and artists alike, and 'Dx' was what they created. This library contains sounds from audiometric and audiological tests, such as sweeps, spatializations, impulses, phase tests, resonance tones, and frequency sweeps. The tracks are even edited for the appropriate length of each test. With 888 sounds and noises of every color, this library will cover your needs whether they be artistic or academic.
 
Winds of Dovrefjell
 
  • Environments Winds of Dovrefjell Play Track 32+ sounds included, 71 mins total $42

    Many years of trekking in the Dovre mountains (Dovrefjell) at heights from 900 to 1200 masl. and temperatures reaching down to -20°C, has led to many unique recordings.

    My main goal when on Dovrefjell was to capture the “sound” of the harsh climate that dominates up there. Subsequently it was hard to avoid the ever restless wind. But it can be quite tricky to capture the sound of wind (or rather the sound of wind on or through objects) and there are only some “sweet spots”, in this vast high altitude climate scattered with rocks and tiny trees, that will generate a good recording.

    These recordings were done crouching behind rocks, on cliff sides, on top of summits, behind weathered shelters, old mountain farms and bushes. Partially freezing my hands of, operating recording equipment.

    Add to cart
With the increasing popularity of synthesized wind sounds in interactive media, 'Winds of Dovrefjell' is a breath of fresh air - if you don’t mind the pun. This library includes 71 minutes of wind recorded in the Dovre mountains of Norway where recordist Robin Barstow braved -20°C temperatures. Now that's dedication! In capturing the harsh climate, he recorded on top of summits, along the cliff sides, and near old mountain farms. Kjempebra, Robin!
 
Bells & Bowls
 
  • Bells & Bowls – a collection of 86 files/100MB glass & ceramic bell sound effects in 24bit/96kHz mono.

    I give you 14 different bell-like objects, each multi-sampled for maximum expressiveness, tuned to the nearest musical note and ready to drop into your favorite sampler and play away. Ranging from only slightly complex sine waves, to strange wobbles and beat frequencies, these actual physical bowls, plates and vases had some pretty amazing musical sounds in them. Many of them took surprisingly little pitch-alterations to reach a musical note – almost as if some glassware factory wanted them to be struck with mallets and recorded!

    You get:

    • Clean, high quality sounds
    • All sounds tuned to nearest musical note
    • All files trimmed to start, for ease of use in samplers
    • Several variations per recorded object = organic and expressive productions
    • Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
    Add to cart
Hzandbits discovered music in the kitchen with 'Bells & Bowls'. This library features recordings of multiple types of strikes on jugs, bowls, vases and plates made of glass and ceramic. The tones range from the ringing wobbles we expect from glass to interesting muted attacks that sound like piano hits. Plus, all tracks are tuned to their closest musical notes, so you can drop them right into your favorite sampler. For tones that are organic but pitch-perfect, check out this library.

    TESTIMONIALS & BUYERS COMMENTS

    “I had a Tesla in a show and realized I had no Tesla library – This kit got the job done perfectly – Thanks Rick!

    -Jonathan Lipman, MPSE
    Sony Pictures: “The Good Doctor” network TV series

    “Rick’s TESLA SFX library was a life-saver for us on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce, especially since Tesla demands that ONLY authentic Tesla sounds be used whenever their vehicles appear in a scene! Rick’s FX gave us that authenticity. Very valuable resource. Thanks Rick!”

    – David Briggs
    Supervising Sound Editor, HBO “Divorce”

    “Hey Rick! Awesome job on the Tesla library! Literally minutes after downloading, I cut one of the servos into a commercial I’m working on… I’m going to get a TON of mileage out of the wheel recordings. I feel like wheels are a really difficult sound to get a great recording of… All around great job!”
