  • New York Gorges and Waterfalls has the hidden sounds of waterfalls from the secluded gorges of New York State. The gorge walls shoot upward 150 meters, creating beautiful stone sanctuaries of sound. Rushing water cuts deep through smooth shale outcrops, with the lack of pebbles giving these falls a uniquely polished and frictionless character. In this collection, you’ll receive sounds ranging from murmuring 1-meter cascades to thunderous 65-meter behemoths. If you need waterfalls distinct to the Appalachians, listen to New York Gorges and Waterfalls.

  • DESCRIPTION:

    Here you can find 61 HD quad surround ambiences of the wild North European nature. They were recorded during a two-week recording trip on foot and by rowing boat in the hot July of 2018 at the heart of the national park in Karelia, North-Western Russia. Spacious, transparent, immersive and absolutely free from any technogenic and anthropogenic sounds. Still air and wind through grass or trees. Birds and insects from single and sparse at the cloudy morning to dense and busy at the hot sunny noon, a mosquito chorus at dawn and ear-piercing grasshoppers at sunset. Distant thunder rolls and disturbed Arctic Loon, huge old trees creaking and grumbling in the wind.

    10 % of the library’s revenue goes to nature preserves and animal shelters.

  • DESCRIPTION:

    This second volume comprises 71 quad surround ambiences of the hot summer at the national park in Karelia, North-Western Russia. Carrying you away into the land of Mother Nature, untouched with technogenic and anthropogenic sounds. Busy morning of birds and insect in a marsh, streams in forests and a beaver’s dam, a rapid roaring river in a canyon. Mystically whispering and aggressively chattering winds through reed. A swallow feeding their nestlings in front of the microphone. Still evening over lakes with echoing voices of a Hobby falcon, Arctic Loon calls and splashy takeoff runs. Otherworldly silent night with Longhorn beetle larvae creaking communications in the trees at the shore, a bat at 30 kHz and a large beetle cruising around the mic like a helicopter with rumble down to infrasound.

    10 % of the library’s revenue goes to nature preserves and animal shelters.

  • This library of environmental recordings is the culmination of three recording expeditions to the stunningly gorgeous Pacific Northwest. We visited a variety of locations ranging from urban Vancouver, Portland, and Seattle to the wild and untamed Olympic Peninsula. We captured dynamically disparate sounds such as a noisy Seattle shipyard and the quietest location in the continental US – deep within the primordial Hoh Rainforest. There are excellent crowd wallas, and contemplative mountain streams. From beaches to mountain tops to luxury high rises no environment was left un-recorded! This is what the Northwest sounds like!

    In all, this library features 69 individual files totaling over three hours of runtime. Total un-zipped file size is over six gigabytes. All sounds have been edited to remove discernable dialog and unwanted noises. What’s left is pure, loop-able ambience suitable for no-fuss editing.

    All sounds were captured on a Sound Devices 744T recorder. Microphones used include a Sanken CSS-5 stereo mic and a matched stereo pair of Sennheiser 8040s in ORTF configuration. All recordings are accompanied by a high quality photograph for reference and tagged with Pro Tools searchable metadata.

    Bonus library included:

    As a special incentive we will also include a bonus mini-library of ambiences from the Irish countryside that James recorded on a recent trip home! Highlights include some great mountain winds and a rare recording of a starling formation taking flight!

  • The OUTDOOR IMPULSE RESPONSES library from BOOM gets you realistic outdoor reverbs – fast and easy.

    Using impulse responses, you can apply the acoustic characteristics of a particular location to your target audio as if it had been recorded in that place. With our BOOM Library OUTDOOR IMPULSE RESPONSES library, you get 68 great outdoor impulse responses to place your sounds into specific locations and make them sound as plausible and realistic as possible. We recorded a lot of different outdoor locations such as fields, forests, hills, mountains, valleys and urban locations. We have ensured that each recording has a rich and detailed reverb tail to capture every characteristic delicacy of the respective location. All files come in high definition audio (192kHz). Each location is documented with a picture to get an impression of the surrounding area. Watch our tutorial video below to see how to work with BOOM Library impulse responses.

    To use BOOM Library OUTDOOR IMPULSE RESPONSES, you need a convolution reverb plugin that allows importing impulse responses. This is not included in this library.

  • • In Pacific Northwest: Roosevelt Elk, get a mini-nature collection of ambiences from the Hoh Rainforest, a temperate rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula in Olympic National Park. Hear Roosevelt Elk clack antlers and bugle as they fight for the chance to mate. Hear Pacific Wrens joyous chirps as they dance on rotten logs. Hear the massive sparseness of forests filled with 200-300 foot douglas fir and spruce. Hear haunting reverberations as ravens caw in groves of titans and the Hoh River’s soothing wash, the perfect sound to lull you off to peaceful dreams.
    • This library offers you a small collection of both quiet and active nature sounds from one of the wettest forests in North America. Some places on the Olympic Peninsula get over 200 inches of precipitation per year, and that abundance of moisture makes for a magical fern and moss filled ecosystem brimming with soothing ambiences.

  • Environments Park N Planes Play Track 1500+ sounds included, 218 mins total $50 $35

    What do you get when you combine a nature preserve, a small lake with a stream, and a nearby airport? You get beautiful scenery and a confusing soundscape. Walk along the path in the Barbara Key Nature Preserve in Illinois. But careful not to step on any plants of flowers.

    Park N Planes includes recordings of a small fishing lake inhabited by families and birds. Attached to the lake is a small stream, additionally recorded with a stereo pair of Aquarian H2a hydrophone microphones for low rumbles and high popping sounds. Listen as the birds chirp, bugs buzz and fly past the microphones, not to mention planes and helicopters flying overhead. Along with planes and helicopters, you will also hear distant vehicles.

    Park N Planes has over three and a half hours of recordings packed into 27 files, over 1500+ sounds, and 15.17GB. All files are recorded using the Sennheiser MKH8050 and MKH30 into a Sound Devices Mix Pre-6. All Metadata tagged using Basehead and Soundly.
