Recording The Barrett 50 BMG
You may have heard a rumor through the social network grapevine that I finally took a Barrett 99 50 BMG rifle out into the North Idaho wilderness and recorded the tiny little sound it makes. Well, it’s true. I did, and it was LOUD and so much fun recording such an amazing sounding gun. I have never recorded such a large rifle before and was very anxious after recording 15 body thumping shots to get back to the studio and listen to the multi-microphone recordings.
Presenting CHAINSAW HD Professional Sound Effects Collection. I am one of the lucky few who live in the enchanted land of chain saws. On any given day someone nearby is running one. Whether it’s a homeowner cutting firewood or a professional logging operation, the chain saw sound abounds. Includes some of the finer moments of my cutting down trees and preparing firewood for the winter.
From the dirty mind of The Recordist. Presenting: Dirt HD Professional Sound Effects Library, a unique collection of totally organic, GMO free dirt sound effects recorded with ultra high frequency microphones. When pitched to extremes they sound unlike anything you have heard before. Sounds of a shovel and a coffin? Yep, they’re in there. Sweeten your next explosive project with farm fresh North Idaho dirt.
Presenting the (unconventional) Heavy Duty SUV HD Professional Sound Effects Collection. For the last seven years I have been recording the various sounds generated by my 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ Sport Utility Vehicle. This has been a huge undertaking as you might guess, cars make a whole lot of different kinds of sounds. I approached this collection differently that most. Read on to find out the details.
Introducing Firearm Foley HD Professional Sound Effects Library. This is a massive collection of gun foley sound effects recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz over a five year period here in my North Idaho studio and in the field. Some of the weapons were recorded with two microphones and others with a single microphone. The multiple microphone tracks include a close up extended frequency response version and a medium distant perspective.
Presenting Machine Guns HD Professional Sound Effects Library. This collection of gun sounds feature four fully automatic weapons recorded at a wide open 400 acre ranch in North Idaho. With a mountain ridge in front and open field behind the guns a breathtaking echo is generated while at the same time the “close up and personal” microphones capture the intense muzzle blast and mechanics of each weapon in stunning detail.
Prepare yourself for a six year journey through the mind of the motor. Presenting Motorz ElektriX HD Professional Sound Effects Library. Included are more than 500 individual sounds recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz and presented on 150 Broadcast WAV files with detailed Metadata. Coffee Robot, Fax Machines, Laserdisc Player, Video 8, Hydraulic Lifts and much, much more!
Presenting Gunscapes HD Professional SFX Library. Large caliber rifles, shotguns, pistols, machine guns and assault rifles were recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz. As many of you might know I have been working on a gun sound effects library for the last 3 1/2 years. At this moment I feel there is enough material finalized and ready to let loose. This has been a massive undertaking and I am very happy with the results so far.
The final release of Explosives HD Professional SFX Library. A whole bunch of Tannerite, White Lightning, Goliath, a black powder cannon, large caliber rifles and some other secret stuff I’m not at liberty to talk about or to have video of. The result of this massive undertaking is a one of a kind collection of things that make a loud noise when lit up or shot at and along with the blasts it includes all sorts of black powder bursts, sizzle, flames, rocket type effects.
Presenting Bullets HD Professional Sound Effects Library. After nine long months and over thirty recording sessions it’s finally done! During the last week of October 2012 the remaining sounds for this comprehensive collection of bullet sound effects were recorded with a multi-microphone setup in the wilds of North Idaho. This final release adds the sounds of bullets being shot into an old Bronco SUV.
