You will find the happy chimes of social game design, flexible explosions, sounds of grooming in the bathroom, tranquil ambiences from rural Texas, handmade glitches, high-tech hums of an electric car, sounds of catching bait knee high in mud, the squeals of dry ice and metal, and lots of sleighbells just in time for Christmas. If you need an eclectic assortment of libraries, this is your week!

    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!”

    -Kai Paquin

Most recordings are well over 4 minutes, with one half-hour night-time track that will make you want to take out your tent immediately. For a mini-nature collection of lush, peaceful nature sounds from the heart of the American Southwest, here’s High Desert Ambiences 1: Miniature.

These markers can be read in programs such as RX, Reaper, and Soundminer. The markers are also included as .txt files in the sound files folder.

Metal Resonances

    Metal Resonances is a pack full of resonating metal that was made resonant with contact from dry ice. This creates otherworldly metallic tones which we carefully recorded and crafted into this product.

    The pack contains everything needed to create all sorts of creaks and cranks and can be used to sound design everything from robots, bridges, hatches, hinges, cars, horror SFX, UI. There are also a very expressive trait to some of the sounds, and can probably be made into weird creatures and other unexpected things.

    The entire pack has unique descriptive meta data for each file to make it easy to navigate between the different sounds.

    The pack was captured in 96khz and 192khz and some sounds have two different perspectives to choose from. The 96khz version is usually from a close-up handheld perspective or in direct contact with the material, where 192kHz comes from carefully miced up static positions.

    Recorded with two Oktava MK 012 in spaced stereo configuration and a Sony PCM m-10

Also, since they were captured at 96kHz and 192kHz with two different perspectives, the sounds can also be manipulated for 'large-scale' use for massive metal squeals from bridges, huge hinges and twisting rebar.

  • In 1979, bells from more than 100 countries were brought together for a communist event which had the purpose to promote world peace.
    Kids from most countries gathered for the occasion bringing along with them bells from each of their respective country.
    A monument was built for this occasion which is still standing nowadays, situated in the suburb of Sofia.
    This monument encompasses what is known to be the largest drum instrument in the world, as it contains hundreds of bells from all over the world.
    We meticulously recorded each of those bells.
    We were blessed to get clean close sounds of these bells with some variations, isolated takes but also sequence of ringing.
    In this library. you’ll find a selection of 30 of these countries which have bells that have “church-like” sonic characteristics.
