Sunday Sound Effects Round Up - All Your SFX News In One Place

12-07-2014 11:00 AM

Here at Pro Tools Expert Towers we have been getting a lot of news of different sound effects collections being released from a range of providers so we intend to bring them together in one place.
Airborne Sound Free Firearm Library

Airborne Sound are currently offering a free gun library that contains over 1,100 files in over 7 gigs of gun recordings. This collection includes bonus sound files, documents, and freshly revised metadata previously unavailable elsewhere.

Chuck Russom FX Are Offering Guns (Single Serving Packs)

Continuing the gun theme, sometimes you need gun sounds, but you don’t always need a huge collection of them. So Chuck has wisely covered both angles. There is a multi gun pack, but if you just need one or two guns then you can buy a pack with just one gun.

Each gun has multiple takes and includes sounds from 10-16 microphone positions, covering close, medium, and distant perspectives. These are the same sounds from the larger bundle, but you now have the option of purchasing a gun at a time. The single gun packs vary from $20 to $35 per pack

New Sound Lab Announce 3D Printer Library

New Sound Lab has released NSL013 3D Printer, a sound library featuring recordings of a 3D printer with four NEMA 14 stepper motors. When printing three-dimensional objects, these fast and precise movements result in a unique barrage of percussive and rhythmic mechanical noise.
These sounds were captured using three different recording setups using both Barcus Berry contact mics, and RF coils. Both raw recordings, and processed elements are included and ready for further sound manipulation.
There are 209 files at 24bit - 192khz giving you a 2 gig library and all files are organized and tagged with metadata, compatible with Pro Tools, Audiofinder, Soundminer and other sound library management software.
They are offering a special introductory price of $39 until the end of the year. Are Offering A Winter Sale With Discounts Up To 50%
