  • Environments Athens & Crete Play Track 75+ sounds included, 400 mins total $100

    Ya su, Kalós órises, and welcome to Athens & Crete!

    From the ancient bustling markets to the untouched natural beauty of the Mediterranean coast, this library epitomises the notion of two sonic worlds colliding. We set out with the goal of capturing this historical part of the world and quickly learned this could only be done by fully embracing this polarity. So here we are, two libraries in one and boy is it a cracker!!

    Athens

    This capital city, steeped in history, wrestles elegantly with the old and new. Market trader calls fill the archaic streets as they have for centuries before whilst across town the modern heart of Athens beats to the sound of cars and motor bikes.

    We captured street buskers, back alley murmurs, bustling city squares, markets, heavy traffic, skylines and even a religious sermon!


    Crete

    400km away from the chaos of Athens sits the serene island of Crete, a picture of unchanged Mediterranean life. Unlike Athens, nature dominates here and we got our ankles wet recording all she has to offer; big surf, coves and gurgling rock pools. Mountain goats, crows, roosters and an early dawn chorus. Insects of the Agia Erini Gorge – more Cicadas than you can shake a stick at!

    So whether it's Game of Thrones or the next Bourne film, this beast will help bring your locations to life!

  • Environments Forest Ambience One Play Track 21 sounds included, 90+ mins total
    4 out of 5
    $35

    ‘Forest Ambience One’ is the first library in my nature ambience series where I intend to record the vast and unique forests of Finland and their changing sound between the four seasons.

    This library consists of 21 unique pine and birch forest ambiences recorded in Northern Finland during summer. Most of the ambiences have occasional birds in them but I was lucky to capture the sound of the forests without the birds too.

    Due to the varying weather during the summer I also decided to record some of the locations when it was raining lightly and also when the rain had passed to get that after rain dribble.

    The average length of each ambience is between 3-5 minutes so you can easily create your own ambience loops for e.g. video games.

    Forest Ambience One is recorded with Sound Devices 702 and a stereo pair of Sennheiser 8040’s in ORTF – and you get the sounds in two formats: 96 kHz, 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz, 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • Nature & Countryside Forest Reverb – Outdoor Impulse Responses Play Track 134 sounds included, 6:41 mins total
    4 out of 5
    $25

    Get a collection of 134 impulse responses – recorded in the forest.

    What if, instead of going to the forest to record the sound, we can find a way to bring the characteristics of the forest to us? Say, for example, we have recorded a sound in the studio like the sound of chopping wood or foley footsteps, but we want them to sound like they are in the forest?

    There is a way to emulate this. To make our source sound like it is, in fact, in a forest. The answer is to use the impulse response of the forest and one of the convolution reverb plugins for your DAW.

    An impulse response of the forest (or “forest IR”), is the sum of reflections from trees, foliage and the ground by very short signal at high volume. For this sound library, I recorded different impulses in a stereo at different locations of the forest with perfect conditions. Also, the library includes alternate versions of these impulses for use in the processing of the sounds that are far away from the listener.

    Note: Requires a convolution reverb plugin
    – here are some free options:

    For using these impulse responses, you need a convolution reverb plugin (not included). The library can be used with the built-in convolution plugins in many DAWs like ProTools, FL Studio amd Sony Vegas, and there are other commercial options on the market, but costs can be high. For starters, you can use a free convolution reverb from the following

    LiquidSonics’ Reverberate LE (Win)
    SIR by Christian Knufinke (Win)

    A wide choice of IR’s will allow you to choose the most appropriate nuanced impulse response for your material. As you gain more experience with this forest IR, you will find that you can quickly adjust the ratio and volume level for wet and dry channels and effectively use other options of convolution reverb. This powerful forest reverb emulation will be incredibly effective for your sounds.

    • Files ranging from 31 seconds to 30 minutes
    • Rio Grande dawn chorus along the Texas/Mexico river border
    • Locations: Near Marfa, Texas (in a mountain valley at an altitude of 6,000 ft) and Big Bend National Park along the Rio Grande River, Texas/Mexico border.
    • These desert ambiences are extremely quiet, so I have included descriptive markers to signal interesting events in an otherwise featureless waveform. These markers can be read in programs such as RX, Reaper, and Soundminer. The markers are also included as .txt files in the sound files folder.

This serene collection features sounds that will make you fall in love with the harmonious desert dawn. Sounds include doves cooing, woodpeckers hammering, White-throated Swifts in swirling flocks, and much more. Featured like never before are recordings of Swainson’s hawks so close you can hear the whoosh as their powerful wings cut through the air. For the second installment of my extensive nature sounds from the heart of the American Southwest, here is High Desert Ambiences 2 – Dawn and Morning Choruses.

    2% for the Planet:
    Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause. I view it as an “artist royalty” for the planet!

    KEY FEATURES:
    Swainson’s Hawks – a male and female recorded near their nest in a 200-foot cliff. Recordings are from below the nest and include close, distant, circling, diving, and soaring perspectives.
    White-throated Swifts – flocks of small barn swallow-like birds circling, darting, and whooshing in front of a desert cliff.
    • Other Birds/Wildlife Included: Canyon Wren, Bewick’s Wren, Montezuma Quail, White-winged Dove, Western Screech-Owl, Aoudad Sheep, Rufous-crowned Sparrow, Eastern Meadowlark, and many more labeled as “songbirds” if not identified by species.
    Quiet Nature tracks –these filenames start with “Quiet Desert” and are sparse ambiences recorded at the threshold of hearing and normalized between  -15 and -20 dBFS, with and integrated loudness of approximately -35 to -45 LUFS.
    Quiet Nature tracks have low wildlife activity and are perfect “natural roomtones” to use as the foundation of a designed environment.
    • All tracks normalized between -10 and -20 dBFS. Most tracks have an integrated loudness between -25 and -45 LUFS.
    • Most files are 3-6 minutes in length
    • Named markers included in each file to help find interesting events in an otherwise uniform waveform. Starting in Soundminer 4.5Pro_v252 you can now read text markers from within Soundminer!

    • Marker text included in the Soundminer Description and BWAV description fields.
    • Recording Location – Davis Mountains, Texas
    • *Note – Birds were self-identified using several iOS apps and bird identification websites, so I cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of species identification.
