The Honda VTX 1300
 
  • Motorcycles The Honda VTX 1300 Play Track 49+ sounds included, 45 mins total $20

    Get the sounds of the the Honda VTX 1300 – a distinctive cruiser motorcycle.

    Its 1300cc displacement is right in the sweet spot between the zippier 750 models and the massive 1800 road warriors. This particular one was equipped with a set of custom Vance and Hines Big Shots exhaust pipes early in its life, giving it a distinctive and throaty note that can be heard up and down the highway. The VTX line is also known for its distinctive transmission, which gives a meaty ‘clunk’ with every shift.

    This library is a set of recordings that were made using a combination of onboard and exterior mics at a variety of useful speeds, as well as free running on the highway. Its a smaller set, but very distinctive and useful.

    We recorded multiple channels on every movement:
    • Onboards consisted of Line audio CM3, Crown PZM and Sanken COS11 mics
    • A handheld MKH416 rig covered bys and exteriors

    After a half day of recording we had material ranging from idles and slow starts to fast bys and highway runs.

The Honda VTX is like the tenor sax of the motorcycles. It has the chunky timbre of a road king, but with more bravado and warmth. The team at echo | collective recorded this beast with onboard and exterior mics at different speeds to create a strong collection of passbys, idles, slow starts and highway travel.

Urban Crows
 
  • Animals & Creatures Urban Crows Play Track 31 sounds included, 90 mins total $25

    Urban Crows is a library full of interesting sounds of single crows and swarms.

    These proud birds deserve a lot more attention than they usually get. They are amazingly intelligent, social and by no means aggressive or monotonous when it comes to their communication capabilities.

    The library evolved throughout winter 2015/16 and was taken from the attic of a house surrounded by trees were the crows frequently stayed overnight. So it was a great pleasure to record them arriving in the evenings as well as hearing them chatting during the dawn. They have a huge arsenal of clearly distinguishable single caws, funny sighs or nervous screams that often evolved to a huge cluster of noises that became stronger when the church bells began to ring and the sun came up.

    All takes are recorded in Mid-Side stereo, with Sennheiser MKH-70 shotgun for a strong mid-signal and AKG-C394B for the ambience. The total playing time of the library is approx. 1h 30min.

    Add to cart
Recordist Stephan Marche captured more than 1.5 hours of sounds of single crows and swarms. They were recorded both evenings and mornings, as they were going about their crowy business in a group of trees - and the library features some fine of their advanced communication abilities.

  • In a remote research lab in the north-east of England, scientists have been secretly carrying out experiments on a number of human test subjects. There is no record of what these experiments entailed or who authorized them, but one thing we do know is that something went horrendously wrong and transformed these once-innocent, everyday people into something else entirely… Something inherently evil.

    Herein lies an audio documentation of these wretched beasts as they run amok with only one thing on their minds… To feed and to destroy.

    Zombie contains 205 vocal sounds in the following categories:
    Subject A: 67 raw unprocessed vocal sounds
    Subject B: 89 raw unprocessed vocal sounds
    Subject C: Zombie Brat: 18 raw unprocessed vocal sounds
    Processed: 27 vocal sounds with pitch down and reverb fx
    Layered: 4 layered, looping sequences of Subject A & B
  • Ice Frozen Play Track 809 sounds included $45

    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.
