  • Environments Water Flow by Soundholder Play Track 90+ sounds included, 188 mins total $40

    Water Flow took six months to create, and offers 90 BWAV files recorded in different locations. A huge part of this library is based on the recording sessions by (and in) rivers. Most recordings were done during the winter just before sunrise, to reduce the amount of unwanted sounds.

    Almost all recordings are completely clear and free from any birds in the background.

    The first location was river called Łyna, and there I’ve recorded a sound of water flowing at different speeds, along with the sound of a dam reducing the speed and height of the river’s flow. The second interesting part of this location was the amount of fallen trees in the water, causing the water to split. Because of this, there was a lot of sonically interesting places to record.

    The second river is called Guber, and it’s much smaller than Łyna. I’ve picked this place because of the really subtle water streams, and something even more amazing, natural dams built by beavers. The amount of work these animals put to built those dams is incredible.

    In addition to recorded rivers, this library also includes the sound of water dripping inside underground sewers. During one of my field recording trips I discovered a hatch. I could not resist to go inside, and what I discovered there was far beyond my expectations. I made a two small trips there to record it from different distances, with different microphones in mono and stereo.

  • Nature & Countryside Water Streams One Play Track 20 sounds included, 60+ mins total $15

    'Water Streams One' is the first library in my 'Water Streams' series that explores the bubbly and roaring sounds of rapids, rivers and streams found all around Finland.

    The library consists of 19 unique sounding locations ranging from large rapids to tiny streams. Most of the content was recorded in quiet Northern Finland locations and I even visited the Oulanka National Park to record its famous large roaring rapids.

    Due to challenging and hard to access locations I decided to record the library with portable Sony handheld recorders utilizing ORTF and XY techniques.

    The average length of each file is between 2-4 minutes so you can easily create your own loops for video games and other media.

    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.

  • We are the People is a sound effects library filled with protests chants from the 2012 NATO protests in Chicago.

    Two locations give this library two aurally unique crowd environments. The downtown protests reflect off the surrounding buildings, giving them a neat urban quality, while the Ravenswood protests give the impression of a more open environment. Groups of protesters in unified chant ranged in size from just a few to perhaps 200 or more. Many of the recordings have wonderful builds, starting with one or two voices and grow from there, in both size and intensity.

    These recordings work great as stand alone effects or for layering in some specificity to crowds. The next time your designing a defiant crowd, bring some authenticity with We are the People.

  • Environments Wilderness Americas : Amazon Rainforest Play Track 117 sounds included, 566 mins total From: $110

    Wilderness Americas : Amazon Rainforest is a collection of sounds captured in the West part of the Amazon basin (El Oriente) across 3 South American countries : Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.

    This library focuses on the wildlife and wilderness sounds of the Amazon rainforest/jungle.
    Reaching the Amazon region is not easy and need many resources and time.
    Also the weather conditions are very bad for people and audio equipment: Extreme humidity, rain and heat don't work great with microphones and recorders.
    We have selected audio gear specifically for this purpose: Tropicalized microphones : sennheiser MKH 8020 and MKH 30 series in a surround configuration + a world-renowned recorder : Sound devices Mixpre 10T. We also brought a humidity-proof microphone basket (Cinela)
    This weather-proof setup permitted us to record even under strong tropical rain. (We have also a special mic cover which reduces the sound of raindrops on the microphone basket)

    We have always focused on places where they protect and respect the “Selva” (Forest), especially places like National Parks, Research Stations or community places.
    -> We went recording in these places: Madidi National Park (BOLIVIA), Podocarpus National Park (Ecuador), “Jatun Sasha” biological station (Ecuador),
    The forest around the Rio Napo (an affluent connection to the amazon river) (Ecuador), the “Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Cuyabeno” (Ecuador), and the region around Mocoa, between Santa Rosa Canyon and the Paway Reserva (Colombia).

    We used “sound trap” technics for long and immersive recordings: We hid microphones and protected recorders in a waterproof bag and let it sit for days and nights in the middle of the rainforest (usually 24 hours of non-stop recording).
    This system allowed us to record the sunrise, dawn chorus, and sunset – times where the animals are more active.
    Here is some animals we have recorded :

    Exotics Birds and more, especially parrots, parakeet, cuckoo, Oro Pendulo, cacique, magpie, etc.
    Insects and more, especially crickets, cicadas, mosquitos, flies, etc.
    Mammal : Amazonian flying squirrel, spider monkeys, and howler monkeys
    Amphibians: Frogs, toads

    Each sound recording are tagged with GPS coordinates and full Soundminer metadata.

    -The Full sound bank (Stereo + Surround/Ambisonic) contains 117 sound takes recorded in 24/96khZ (Total length : 566 minutes) and decline in 351 files

  • “Wilderness Americas : Geyser and Volcano” is a collection of sounds focused on geothermal phenomena of Central and North America.

    We recorded geysers in the Yellowstone National Park (USA) and two very actives volcanoes: the Fuego in Guatemala, and the Masaya in Nicaragua.

    To complete this sound library, we added natural sound elements which are very efficient for sound design as designed sound material:

    “Super volcano” eruption sounds, magma lake ebullition sounds, lava movement, and landslide sounds.

    The geyser and Masaya volcano sounds (magma lake, lava movement) were recorded with the Telinga Parabola with a Sennheiser MKH 8040. The Telinga was used for its powerful ability to focus on sound details at a reasonable distance.

    The explosions and eruptions of the Fuego volcano were recorded in surround with a Sennheiser DMS setup (MKH 8040-30) and also with the Telinga Parabola + MKH 8020.

    -This sound bank contains 56 sound takes recorded in 24/96 kHz, and a total of 122 files.
