Wolves

(2 customer reviews)

$79

DESCRIPTION:

The highest quality vocal sounds of the members of a wolves pack in their social interaction. Howls solo and in groups from 2 to 9, fierce growls, extremely bassy grumblings, barks, snorts, whines, yapping. All the raw material was collected using the method of passive week-long observation with minimal intrusion, nothing was staged or provoked. A large part of the library is made of unintentional recordings of the accidental territorial quarrel between a polar wolf SEVER and an alpha male HORT: very aggressive growls, teeth clacking and other fight sounds. Luckily, despite the terrifying sonic impression, no one was injured. About 60 hours of raw recordings were edited into 1 hour 18 minutes, 151 files with 500+ individual sounds. Wolves are very emotional, expressive and surprisingly musical. So, these sounds can be equally useful for films and games representing wolves, as well as for creature and monster sound design. Some of the recordings sound very humanlike.

10% of this library revenue goes to the shelter for wolves.

    This is hands down THE wolf library

    I don’t think there’s been a library both in terms of quality of recording and depth on the topic of wolves up to this point

    I’d strongly recommend this for anyone who is rounding out their collection of animal recordings, and a no brainer for cutting wolf sounds.

  2. Felix

    Absolutely great stuff. I love that there’s a bit of air in every recording, some beautiful perspective that made the use of sounds quite immediate and fitting to picture. Clearly recorded with passion and care for the animals.
