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.
Just in time for Halloween is 'The Undead'
. 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'
by Big Room Sound Inc
has 365 sounds of splashes and water effects. In this library you will find dives, lunges, emerging, swishes, and drips recorded in a quiet outdoor pool with soft natural reverb. It also includes unique elements like percussive splashes created with axes and hammers and water whooshes and sweeps for more creative water sound design. Whether you're looking for sounds for your pool scene or water foley for your magic creatures, check out 'Cannonball!'
Tanks and Jet
'Tanks and Jet'
brings you more sounds of war by Double Trouble Audio
. This library features a variety of Swedish tanks as they drive, idle, rev and stop, capturing all the close-up details of their creaking metal, wobbling plates and exhaust. The collection even includes sounds of cannon fire and machine guns as well as a flyover from a JAS Gripen, which seems to split the sky in half. For sounds that will make you feel like you're holding onto the side of tank, you won't find a better or more detailed tank library for this modest price!
Essential Football Stadium Crowds
'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.
Brazilian Airports & Plane Journeys
'Brazilian Airports & Plane Journeys'
by Sonic Innovations
has sounds of an international journey from the perspective of the traveler. This library has over two hours of sounds from a complete trip - from the check-in and baggage check to grabbing a quick bite before departing. It also has sounds of the plane as it taxis, takes off and lands, plus all the passenger ambience along the way. If you need the distinctly recognizable atmospheres of an airport or airplane, check out 'Brazilian Airports & Plane Journeys'
by Mattia Cellotto
is a fun and intricate library featuring the huge range of sonic textures from high-quality H2O. This library features 300 sounds from both the volcanic hot-springs of the Portuguese São Miguel Island and various liquids boiling under dry ice. These gurgling and bursting sounds are close and extremely detailed, allowing them to be stretched and manipulated into larger water effects or whatever sea beast you can imagine. For something bubbling, inspirational and completely different, listen to 'Water Volumes'
Basketball Game Ultra
'Basketball Game Ultra'
by Sound Ex Machina
gives you a wide variety of sounds for your basketball scenes - whether you need crowd ambiences, game action, or player foley. It includes sounds of an international game attended by over 5,000 people for crowd reactions, PA announcements, referee whistles, drum beats, national anthems and more. It also has sounds of professional athletes as they play in indoor and outdoor courts and inside the studio for clean takes of backboard hoops, net swishes, shoe squeaks, dribbling on various hard surfaces, and more. For the complex sounds of a basketball game and the indubitable sounds of professional players, check out 'Basketball Game Ultra'
