This week we have dark ambiences from alien worlds, wind turbines that whirl and whine, energy sounds for all your video game needs, Macs that are old enough to rent a car, and creepy old washers that sound like torture devices.
Laundry Mangles
 
  • Industrial Laundry Mangles Play Track 200+ sounds included, 110 mins total $29

    Laundry Mangles is a library full of sounds from vintage machines that once where used in many public washhouses. In some locations they are in use even today.

    Basically, the weight of a huge box filled with stones was used to press big pieces of linen, bed sheets or towels wound on rollers below. Early models were operated by hand which was very exhausting and soon the machines were equipped with electric motors and belt drives.

    This library delivers sounds from 5 different models of various ages that are operated with a crank shaft or electrical belt drive. All machines have been extensively recorded so that any imaginable perspective and operational state is covered. This includes full runs with belt drive and crank shaft, protective grating handlings, idling motors and much more.

Detunized has released yet another interesting and unique sound library from a device that you'd have a hard time finding and an even harder time thinking to record in the first place. 'Laundry Mangles' is a collection of sounds from vintage laundry mills that look more like torture devices. These machines creak, pound, whirl, and spin with their wood and metal crank shafts and belt drives as they run through their full cycles, idling and more. This two-hour library even contains the sounds of five different models — who knew five even existed! For the sounds of early human innovation for solely human needs, check out this library.

  • Environments Spirit of Sound Effects: Thunder Volume 1 Play Track 102 sounds included, 55 mins total $249.99 $153

    Here is the thunder I recorded in 1988, to DAT with an ORTF pair of Schoeps MK-4s, which includes a strike from ~12′ away!  Hair standing up on end and everything.  You may know some of this material as what I released through “The Hollywood Edge Signature Series” back in 1993.  Well, a lot has changed.  More than half the material was then unusable back then due to rain ‘ruining’ the recordings.  Not so with Izotope RX 7 Advanced.  Rain?  What rain?  Not a drop survived.  Not.  A.  Drop.

    Painstakingly remastered to 96kHz 32-bit floating-point (no shortcuts padding it with useless zeros: That would be cheap and lazy).  Embrace it; it’s our near-future and everything I publish from here on out will be as such.

    ​   Hundreds and hundreds of mic capsule failures were repaired along with plenty of distortion – without removing any time; so if you line up the old with the now new, they won’t hold sync for long.  Back then all I could do was cut out time.  No more.  Come hear the utter clarity and crispness of this thunder as it should be.  To differentiate and make it quick and easy for people to cut, I’ve called the very close strikes “Lightning” and the not-as-close strikes “Thunder”.  Already prepped in/for Soundminer ready to go, and a spreadsheet document for those using other systems.

  • Ice Frozen Play Track 809 sounds included $45 $23

    Frozen is a collection of ice impacts, scrapes, debris, slides and more taken during a miserably cold winter in the arctic tundra of Massachusetts. These recordings were meticulously recorded, edited, named, renamed, edited again, re recorded, then re-renamed (you get the point) to give you the best quality ice library you can get.

    The library roughly is broken into two sections, raw and processed. Raw is designed for sound designers to go wild with: stretch, distort, compress, and more to your hearts content. The processed section is for designers and content creators on the go. If you’re on a tight deadline, pulling some sounds that are already going to get you close to where you need to be is imperative. These processed versions play very nicely even when not designing ice.
