Recording of a 1945 Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress from World War II, an American heavy bomber with four Wright R-1820 Cyclone engines.
The Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress sound fx collection includes 190 clips in 10.81 gigabytes of audio. It showcases the sound of the Sally B, a 1945 American heavy bomber with four Wright R-1820 Cyclone engines.
A total of 26 synchronized field recordings share 9 onboard and 9 exterior perspectives. The onboard microphones were placed in the cockpit, the bomb bay, nose, and engine to capture multiple steady RPMs and engine swells. Exterior microphones were arranged around the bomber and airstrip to record flyovers, takeoffs, landings, and taxiing. Also included are performed effects of switches, cawl flaps, alarms, switches and more.
The collection includes Reaper and Pro Tools sessions for easy mixing, as well as full Soundminer, BWAV, and MacOS Finder metadata in every clip.

There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
I often need very specific types of sounds so I've become a big supporter of independent recorders.
Until now I've always had to go to their individual websites. Now I can find them all in one place.
And, Asbjoern is great to work with!
A Sound Effect is a well curated boutique sound effects shop and a great place to find industry interviews and learning resources.
