Ancient Armour and Weapons is the result of months of recording, editing and arranging historic prop foley and combat sounds. Recorded at a dedicated foley stage in London, UK with a wealth of experience in crafting sound for feature film, TV and video games.
The library has been designed to give sound editors and media creators some of the core audio elements needed to create epic sword fights, brutal melee conflicts and more; whilst proving multiple content options for editors to use either compiled sounds or original recordings from a choice of microphones. In addition to the search capabilities of the sound selection, care has been taken to arrange the recordings into a sequenced order. Multiple versions of each sound have been recorded in line so this content can be combined and layered easily.
Background foley for mass groups has been provided with a selection of layers. These tracks can be panned to create 2.0, 5.1, 7.1 and up to 7.1.4 mixes.
Content Groups Included:
Blood, gore, swords, metal shields, wood shields, spear, axe, arrows, historic armour impacts, whoosh, body fall wearing period dress, mass group foley, prop impacts, metal scrapes and more.
