NXNW – Cascadia 2017

$35 $30

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!

Recordist, Producer, Editor – Jason Strawley
Photography, Video – Andrew Garraway

Blackguard SMG aims to provide creative professionals with high quality royalty-free media including SFX libraries and stock music. Everything we produce is made with the end user in mind with special attention paid to editing, variations, curation, and usability.

Blackguard SMG was founded by Andrew Garraway & Jason Strawley circa 2012 in Orlando, FL. After emigrating from his native Ireland (largely to take advantage of our country’s superior pizza topping offerings), James Nolan came on board as a SFX specialist in 2015. Combined, we have an extensive history of creative and technical output that we intend to leverage into quality results for you.
