9 new sound libraries Asbjoern Andersen


This week on A Sound Effect, we have 9 new libraries with unique sounds for your projects. We have recordings of crowds at live events and around London, pass-bys of amusement park rides and sports cars, and cinematic drones and trailer impacts. We also have otherworldly soundscapes, heads-up display sound effects, and a massive Saviem TP3 off-road vehicle. Happy listening!
Encore! Concert Audiences
 
  • Encore! Concert Audiences is packed with vibrant cheers, applause, and walla to bring your concert crowds to life. The variation from small lounges to outdoor music festivals allows you to cover a multitude of projects. We wanted to put you “in the audience” with this library, so we got nice and close to all the emotion emanating from these crowds. In addition, there are plenty of distant perspectives to give you more general sounding crowds.

    The post process:
    Great care was put into the editing phase of this library in order to maintain clean heads and tails for many of the recordings. We seamlessly sewed together multiple takes for those perfect sounding effects. We also took the time to edit out any and all extraneous noises such as stage sounds, distracting audience voices, offensive nearby claps, and more. In order to maintain the greatest dynamics, these sounds were all mastered at theatrical monitoring levels, giving you the most options in post. Metadata has been thoroughly fleshed out for this library which makes searching for these sounds quick and easy, allowing more time for your creative process.

    Gear Used: Sennheiser MKH30/40 in MS setup, Sound Devices 744t, Sony PCM-D50, Tascam DR-100 mkII

To create a great audience library, you have to do a lot of travel, coordination, and some cognitive shifting with those inquisitive, drunk college kids who don't understand the concept of walla. So, to save you the hassle, Audio Shade went to a variety of live shows and recorded happy, psyched audiences for their new library 'Encore! Concert Audiences'. This collection has cheers, applause, walla, and the occasional overly-passionate audience member, offering you a range of emotions from groups of people enjoying music together.
