Swish & Whoosh
Swish & Whoosh is an extensive high quality collection of organic light and hard swishes and whooshes. The library consists of 62 individual objects ranging from a small metal sieve to a medium sized didgeridoo and covers fast, slow, fast multiple and slow multiple articulations.
The main reason I recorded this library was to create a library that covers not only the normal and fast swish whoosh sounds but also the more subtle, minimal soft sounds that are usually missing from other commercial sound effect libraries. The library also comes with bonus content: 22 minutes of metal slinky sounds, including slinky laser sound effects.
Swish & Whoosh was recorded with Sound Devices 702 and a XY stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040 microphones in acoustically treated studio environment. The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools. For example pitching down the didgeridoo and plastic tube hollow item sounds by two octaves I found really cool and useful low drone sweeps.
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.
