Explosives HD Pro SFX

Explosives HD ProSFX: 700+ • Zip Size(s): 1.76GB • Price: $200.00 USD

Over course of 2012 I’ve recorded 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. Many variations and multiple takes are featured so you have a wide variety of sounds to pick from when designing your next audio masterpiece. Recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz.

This Explosives library is organized into 3 sections: designed, processed and original source files. The designed portion is basically taking the original source files and processing them for importing into Pro Tools sessions to mix with other like sounds and mangle them together. They are over the top, larger than my reality and hopefully yours also. The processed files are amped up with transient enhancers, compression, EQ and slight pitch manipulation. They are derived from the original source files but most tracks are not exact duplicates of the number of takes and file sequence. For the processing, I only used the takes I thought would work well under this kind of processing pressure. And finally, there are the original “cleaned up” source files for you to beat up and process however you see fit. A great many of the explosives were recorded with multiple extended frequency range microphones and from different perspectives.

Some of the other source material used in the “designed” portion of the library is thunder, lightning, plastic air pops, Weatherby 300 rounds and various shotguns. Here in North Idaho we have a amazing environment for recording loud bangs and weapons. The reverb tails even from a small caliber rifle can produce really cool echoes and textures depending on the location and time of year. Some of the locations where I recorded were on a mountain top rock quarry, a dense forest, a medium size gravel pit and my own field here on the ranch. I’ve also recorded during all the four seasons and I will say they all sound a little different.

Note: The latest material (ZIP #3) includes a new section called: “Enhanced Source”. These files are the source recordings amped up with some select processes but the original pitch is not modified. The idea behind this is the user can just change the pitch before importing into a session without running a complex plug in chain but still get a whole lot of “big” from the source. Enjoy! -Frank
