This Library Sucks
 
  • Materials & Texture This Library Sucks Play Track 154 sounds included, 96 mins total $49

    A vacuum cleaner connected to a long hose that leads into the recording room, so you don’t hear the machine – that’s how this library was created.

    It contains sounds from sucking in different materials, dynamic unreal winds & unbearable squeaks from the hose. Furthermore it includes sounds from “inside” the hose/pipe: Close-miked pass-bys of small objects, driven by the wind.

    The recorded frequency content goes up to 100kHz, using a combination of microphones like the Sennheiser MKH 8040 and the Sanken CO-100K. Part of the sound files are already pitched down, so at the delivered 24bit – 96kHz resolution you can pitch them even further down without trimming the full audible frequency spectrum.

    Library highlights:

    • 154 sound files, including 47 seamless loops
    • 96 minutes playing time
    • all files contain meta-data / keywords for easy search

  • Weapons Nocked Play Track 2047+ sounds included $85

    Whether your need to bring a lone rogue to life or a surge of arrows in an epic battle scene, Nocked will provide you with a plethora of flexible content.

    Our largest library to date, this collection is a comprehensive focus on the sounds and functions of the archer and the act of archery. Included are eight recorded bows (2 crossbows, olympic recurve, traditional recurve, longbow, long compound, short compound, and Magyar bow) with 2 additional 'mythic' bows of our own design, each using 3 types of arrows (aluminum, carbon, and bamboo) on 3 varying surfaces (hard, soft, and dirt) from 4 simultaneous recording positions (at bow, at target, midflight mono, and midflight stereo). Each bow and each arrow type have a character all there own.

    The content’s dynamic range is wide, from whispering bamboo arrows gliding on rests as they are drawn to firing position, to the powerful THWACK of crossbow bolts striking their target. All non-firing sounds were recorded in a controlled studio environment while all recordings of the bows being fired were taken on a plot of wide-open rural farmland, encompassed by forests. When needed, this ambient natural environment provided an ideal impulse response to be used in the design and editing of some of the sounds to create a heightened effect.

    Included are a wide array of archery actions and Foley:
    Nocking and unnocking arrows
    Drawing
    Firing (loosing)
    Mid-flight pass-bys
    Releasing / relaxing a draw
    Impacts on targets
    Arrow and accessory Foley (handling, selecting, gathering, dropping, etc.)

    A multitude of takes are provided across each bow/arrow/surface/position combination for easy randomization and differentiation of sounds, or to track any number of unique archers at any given moment.

    Go ahead, let them fight in the shade.
