BigBlock
 
  • Vehicles BigBlock Play Track 369+ sounds included, 82 mins total $34

    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!

'BigBlock' by Eiravaein Works features a classic muscle car that will make your audience feel like they are right in the drivers seat. This collection has over 360 files of an original 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe with up-close recordings of revving, idling, shifting, clutching, and tearing down the highway. It also has sounds of passbys and plenty of foley of the doors, gas caps, horns, turn signals, etc., which can be added quickly and accurately represent your audience's behind-the-wheel perspective. You won't get a more powerful driver feeling for a better deal than this!
 
The Blacksmith
 
  • The Blacksmith Sound Effects Library features 800 files with over 1000 sounds, recorded at a one-day visit to an old forge from the last millennium. You get tons of hammering metal on an anvil of course but also many other typical forge sounds, as well as more unusual sonic experiences. Mostly metallic sounds – from tools handling, metal hits, drops, clank of chains to vibrating metal poles, rattling cranks, wooden hatches and much more.

    All sounds were recorded in MS using a Sennheiser MKH-8050 + Ambient ATE 208 going in a Sound Devices 788T in 192kHz and 24Bit. The sounds are cleaned and edited for direct use. All mastered and decoded to stereo for instant use.

SoundBits is back with another library dedicated to comprehensively recording a location. 'The Blacksmith' takes on this skilled laborer's workshop to show us over 1,000 metal sounds from hammers, anvils, chains, hacksaws, blade sharpening, and handling of metal tools. It also has various wooden sounds of carts, cranks, hatches, and a toolbox for wider range of textures. Whether your project has a character who forges steel swords or you need foley and impacts with specific characteristics, this is a great library to listen to.

Harley Davidson
 
  • Vehicles Harley Davidson Play Track 103 sounds included, 44 mins total $15

    The Harley Davidson sound effects library from G4F SFX features high-quality recordings of the Heritage Softail model. All the files have been meticulously recorded, mixed and meta-tagged for rapid use. We used an Aeta 4minx recorder, a pair of Schoeps ORTF and an AKG C414 to boost the center of the stereo sound. 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.

    Features recordings such as:

    Aways – False starts – Accelerations – Gear shifts – On-board camera – Handling of the bike – Horn – Stops / Braking

'Harley Davidson' by G4F SFX has over 100 sounds of a beloved bike model born in the '80s, the softail. This Heritage Softail was meticulously recorded to include the usual performances - accelerations, passbys, false starts, shifts, braking, etc. - and they made sure to keep the distinct sounds from different areas of the bike clean and separated. The library also has sounds of the horn, someone handling of the bike, various foley, and the clicking of the motorcycle as it cools off after a long ride. For aggressive sounds from a mean bike, definitely check out this library.
