This week we have sounds of activities that we love to do as humans. We have summer pastimes like going to football games, basketball games and swimming, sounds of travel with airport and airplane ambiences and the hot springs of a Portuguese island, sounds of war with tanks and jets, and sounds of human mythology with sadistic zombies. Whether the characters in your project are enjoying their time off or running for their lives, we’ve got some libraries for you.
The Undead
 
  • Animals & Creatures The Undead Play Track 102 sounds included $30

    These are no ordinary zombies, they’re not your mindless, shuffling, flesh craving human husks. An evil runs through what remains of these creatures’ bodies. Flesh has all but decayed from their bones and whatever humanity they had in life has long since departed.

    This library is dedicated to the chilling vocal sounds of the zombie. It is ideal for films and games, TV or trailers and includes 102 bespokely designed zombie vocal assets, including breaths, idle grunts and groans, attacks, pains, death, war cries and more.

    Whilst this library caters primarily for the more aggressive variant of the undead, it wouldn’t sound out of place when used on other terrifying abominations.

    All assets are delivered in 96kHz, 24-bit stereo files and include full Soundminer metadata.

Just in time for Halloween is 'The Undead' by ShotgunMike. This library features zombies, but not the kind you'll find in movies like 'Shaun of the Dead'. Instead of simple moans and groans, these zombie growl, hiss and roar, causing the decayed, tattered skin in their esophaguses to rattle. You will also find sounds of the walking dead breathing, biting, attacking, shrieking, and dying. The library is even organized for interactive use with metadata tags such as idle, taunt, war cry, pain and more. For sounds of zombies and other bloodthirsty creatures, check out 'The Undead'.

Except for one session in the foley studio, all of this material was recorded outside which means no tub reflections.

    A toolbox of sounds that you will come back to over and over.

Tanks and Jet
 
  • Aircraft - Jet/Propeller Planes Tanks and Jet Play Track 30+ sounds included, 34 mins total $25

    Tanks and jet was recorded during a real military drill in Sweden featuring a variety of tanks, and a JAS 39 Gripen.

    From the creaking and clanking of the tanks to the glorious and soaring JAS, and all the way to the brutal tank cannon and machine guns. This pack contains all ingredients for nasty machine warfare. All of the files were recorded during a military drill performed in front of a live audience.

    All files are meta-data tagged with keywords and a description.

    Tanks and Jet includes:

    • Tank Driving (18 files, 18:22 in duration)

Essential Football Stadium Crowds
 
  • Environments Essential Football Stadium Crowds Play Track 52+ sounds included, 64 mins total $60

    Welcome to the Essential Stadium Crowd sound effects library: All the crowds, back room ambience and practice tracks were recorded at the Phoenix Cardinals Stadium, pre/during and post game. I had the opportunity to have a press pass and free reign in the stadium.

    Some of the recordings were recorded way up high in the upper bleachers, and some behind the end zones, as well as other interesting places. There are significant differences in the locations and the ‘thickness’ of the crowds. With this library, you should be able to fill out any sort of large sports arena ambience, as I’ve edited out most of the PA Announcer to give more of a general stadium feel that could be anywhere, and any major arena sporting event. The PA that is left in can easily be edited out.

    All the sounds were mastered in Pro Tools, with very transparent processing going on. My signal chain consisted of a C4 Compressor, DMG Equality EQ, and a L1 Limiter. All reverb is natural.

    Add to cart
'Essential Football Stadium Crowds' by Tsunami Sound Wave gives you all the sounds you forgot to record during your stadium scene. This library has cheering and clapping that are both close-by and from a distance, plus it has unintelligible sounds of the announcer, the pounding beats of a pep band, and even backroom sounds of an excited team. It has it all! Whether you need discernible sounds for your sports game or crowd ambience while your characters sit in the bleachers, 'Essential Football Stadium Crowds' will have you covered.

  • Destruction & Impact Volcano Play Track 13+ sounds included, 116 mins total $75 $50

    MAFX019 Volcano is a collection of unique sounds recorded in Ethiopia’s Afar region at Erta Ale volcano. Erta Ale is one of only a handful of volcanoes with lava lakes in the world, situated in the Danakil Depression, one of the hottest and most inhospitable places in the world. The name means Smoking Mountain in the local Afarigna language and Erta Ale does not disappoint in this regard, as you can see in the video. This place is also known as the Gateway to Hell, an appropriate moniker given the 47C/117F temperatures and lots of dead fauna we encountered.

    Video Thumbnail

    There were only a few lava pits when the library was recorded but plenty of continuous and violent toxic gas releases. Occasionally the ground would move creating low frequency rumbles and debris falling. I had to use a long boompole in order to suspend my trusty MKH8060 over the edge and I improvised a spaced omni array by taping the MikroUsi mics to a video tripod ballhead. The expedition wasn’t 100% risk-free but it was more than worth it for these beautiful sounds.
