The harvester Claas Lexion 530 Library contains all the sounds a decent harvester produces on the field in one day. We were allowed to accompany this gigantic 300+ horsepower machine on the field and document all its activities. It roars and sounds harsh and dangerous.
Whether you are looking for realistic farm sounds or want to design a futuristic vehicle. The harvester files are ready to use or very easy to manipulate as they deliver sounds across all frequencies captured with high end equipment. Both helium-3 harvesting spaceships and apocalypse scrap transporters can be produced in just a few steps.
In addition to the standard exterior recordings such as bypass, away and up, the library also includes on-board recordings from the cab, from the platform, as well as various mic positions such as directly above and beside the cutting knives, on the belt, at the unloading pipe and many more. In addition, there are selected foley sounds, as well as a few distant atmo sounds.
70% of the revenue will benefit the non-profit association “Bulldogs for Kids e.V.” and by this benefit chronical ill children.
Sound of Essen started in 2017 as an official project for the European Green Capital 2017. 12 selected places from the rivers Ruhr and Emscher in Essen were introduced via sound. I offer free downloads of atmos, animals, machinery, vessels and many more along pictures, texts and maps of my trips in Essen. In 2018 the blog will continue with the project Assindia X, a 10 year recording project in Essen, also supported by the city of Essen. In addition, I will continue to feature soundscapes of places and events in Essen and even offer libraries for sale with sounds from my hometown.
