I have been spending days at the local auto salvage yard, which is where our 4-wheeled friends end their days – and here's the result:
The Car Doors library gets you 78 mono door open/close sounds from 30 cars, and 6 car trunks, with multiple passes on each for soft and hard closes – all metadata tagged and ready to go!
Before the poor things were being torn apart for spares and placed on top of each other, I had the pleasure of recording a lot of their doors, opening and closing. As they were rubbish anyway, I could really put all my weight into the closing, and not being scared of the consequences. The sounds are from everyday cars, and some had a bit of rattle and rust, or cheap and thin kind of sound to them, others had some nice, heavy, and convincing thump, to them when they closed.
Sonic Salute is constantly striving to find new and unique sources to record, and make a big effort in getting in touch with the right people to get permission to get the recordings right.
The goal is to provide sound designers and editors with hard-to-get, quality sound effects and ambiences for their projects.
Sonic Salute’s libraries are recorded and edited in 96K / 24 bit. The delivery format is .wav stereo LR ,and or Mono/MS format, for versatility.
Each sound in the libraries has been carefully named and tagged for easy search in Soundminer etc.
Sonic Salute libraries have been packed in zip format. This means a smaller package to download, and at the same time, no compromises are made to the audio quality.
