BigBlock
 
  • Vehicles BigBlock Play Track 369+ sounds included, 82 mins total $38

    This library is an intimate profile of a completely original 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe. It boasts a 427 ‘Big Block’ 400 HP engine, a 4-speed Muncie transmission, 3×2 tri-power carburetor, and plenty of mechanical accessories.

    We recorded anything on the vehicle that made a definable noise: the handbrake, clutch, shifter, turn signal, horn, headlights, hood latch, gas cap, doors, and more. Though the primary focus, of course, was on the beasty combustion and exhaust systems. We collected multi- and single-point, interior and exterior, front to back recordings of the engine cranking, idling, and being cut. We also experimented with a wide spectrum setup for passbys and various driving maneuvers. Files pertaining to the same event are marked accordingly for easy grouping and layering. This collection was designed so that in using multiple grouped files, you can effectively dial in/out the exhaust pipes independently (driver side, passenger side), interior ambience, and direct engine sources as desired. Together with a number of alternative variations, you can use this library to bring any car in your project to life, quickly.

    Don't be afraid to give it a little gas. Enjoy!

An SM58 placed near the exhaust also allows you to add the characteristic “throaty sound” of the Harley that can be mixed to suit your requirements. Each exhaust is on a separate file and is precisely the same length as the ORTF/C414 file for easy synchronization.

  • Animals & Creatures Animal Hyperrealism Vol II Play Track Over 2000 sounds included
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $170

    Animal Hyperrealism Vol II is a library containing sounds themed animal vocalisations, from real to designed creatures totaling more than 2000 individual sounds in 283 files.

    The sounds were partly recorded with animals trained for media production, partly recorded in zoos and wildlife centers. The asset list includes but is not limited to: amur leopards, bottlenose dolphins, californian sealions, pacific walruses, red ruffed lemurs, owls, parrots, dwarf little fruit bats, hamsters, guinea pigs and many more.

    The content has been recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K plus a Sennheiser 8050 for center image and a couple of Sennheiser MKH8040 for stereo image.
    A special section of the library features samples recorded at 384KHz. For these sounds an additional microphone was employed, specifically the CMPA by Avisoft-Bioacoustics which records up to 200 KHz. This microphone was actually used to record most of the library but the 384KHz format was preserved only where energy was found beyond 96KHz not to occupy unnecessary disk space.
    All files are delivered as stereo bounce of these for mics, though in some instances an additional couple of CO100K was added to the sides.
    The resulting ultrasonic spectrum is rich and allows for truly extreme manipulation of the content.

    Bonus: Two extra libraries included for free:
    This library also includes two additional releases from Mattia Cellotto - for free: Crunch Mode delivers 230 crunchy sounds made with a variety of vegetables, fresh bread, pizza crust and a selection of frozen goods. The Borax Experiment gets you 158 squishy, gory, slimy and gooey sounds.
