    This collection brings you 2,000 original sounds at 96kHz/24-bit stereo offering 4 distinct styles of vocalization prepared to breathe life into your creatures, whether they be alien or machine. Each style has over 450 variations covering over 15 different emotions such as “arguing”, “sad”, “scared”, “excited”, “laugh”, “question” and general “talking”. These 4 vocal styles are:

    1. “Voice A”: The untouched raw voice created by the flexatone, perfect for metallic creatures! (0:55-1:12 in the audio example!)
    2. “Voice B”: A slightly deeper voice with additional upper harmonics for a sci-fi aesthetic, ideal for futuristic machines! (0:02-0:13 in the audio example!)
    3. “Voice C”: A more mature voice with some throaty quivering, suitable for many alien creatures! (0:16-0:32 in the audio example!)
    4. “Voice D”: A brighter, lively, child-like voice perfect for younger, smaller creatures! (0:35-0:52 in the audio example!)

    In addition to these 4 extensive voices, there are also over 150 traditional flexatone sounds such as the iconic comedic “boing” found in classic cartoons, as well as shakes, flicks, rises, falls and quivers!

  • • In High Desert Ambiences 4: Coyotes, I revisit the place where my field recording journey started: West Texas. On my drive out, a massive wildfire was burning large parts of the Davis Mountains. The day I arrived firefighters were finally able to contain the blaze, but sadly not before 22,000 acres burned. Much of the wildlife is too slow to escape, but luckily one pack of coyotes was fast enough to climb over a ridge. Normally I hear coyotes out in the plains where they love hunting jackrabbits. That night, however, I was recording from the edge of the dead fire. I was stunned to hear howling deep in the valley! The pack had run into the mountains to escape the blaze.
