Quotable quotes:

Frank’s recordings fill the gap in what’s available with the bigger name general libraries we all tend to fall back on. Pristinely recorded and meticulously labeled, these sounds make short work of finding exactly what you’re looking for.

Whether you’re editing backgrounds or repurposing sounds for the sake of design, the higher quality the source, the better the end result. The Recordist provides exceptional raw material for building really stand-out soundtracks.

I can’t recommend Frank’s libraries enough and find myself reaching for them eagerly and often!

The Devil Dog HD Pro SFX Library Comments:

Frank Bry just announced a library of a very interesting Bull dog- it sounds really great- and has a broad range of great aggressive utterances, and I would say it is some of the most interesting animal vox I have heard in years, check it out, I think it is brilliant.
– C. Maynes

Man, I couldn’t stop laughing the sounds are so strange! That’s some crazy zombie action going on there.
– Chris M. Jacobson, CAS

These are great. I was laughing all the way in the demo clip but I got to 1:57 I just was LOL in tears. The final part is awesome, too. If I ever need alien creature stuff this is definitely first choice. Just to clarify, these sounds are only hilarious because of the adorable dog producing them. The photo helps a lot, too. In any other context these would scare the sh*t out of Chuck Norris.
– nuclear

When I first listened to it, I couldn’t believe that this is a real dog, I just had to look at the picture again. Very good stuff.
– Tamas Dragon

Oh geez. Thanks so much for the laughs today. That was great! I’m wiping tears from my eyes over that poor doggie. Hilarious. Can’t wait to whip out the pitch control!

Bullets HD Pro SFX Library Review: the level of detail he goes through to achieve some of these sounds…The results of what he achieves are so creative and so usable that it goes beyond what the usual recording would capture.” At – 44:00 Sound Library Review II

Bullets Soundbox HD Professional is simply amazing. The recordings are so clean. I already purchased a few sfx libraries from “The Recordist” and was expecting something great from Frank but this library is a must have. I do mainly animation and it will be useful as zap in, zap out, cartoon impacts, tennis and badminton or any sports hits, heavy grabs, pass bys… And you never know I might use it for gun bullets too. – Serge Hamel: Mixer / Sound Designer


“Superbly recorded! Frank, your sounds are welcome additions to my library, and you have a knack for releasing sounds that I happen to have an immediate use for. It’s clear you give your recordings a lot of thought and care. Couple all that with stellar locations and a great price point, and I’ve found myself to be quite the repeat customer. Keep ‘em coming!!”

“Frank is very good at what he does, and there are very few recordists with his track record of excellence. If there is one library that is worthy of having an open account on- His is it. And he is an awesomely great guy as well… I am very jealous that I don’t have a tractor like his!”

Charles Maynes – Sound Designer, Editor and Recordist
Letters from Iwo Jima, Spiderman, The Fantastic Four, Tomb Raider and a few others…..


“Great recordings, many hard to find FX, and at a very reasonable price! Thanks so much Frank. Great stuff!”

I just downloaded Ultimate Fire and it’s ****ing awesome. (I don’t usually swear on professional forums, but it is in fact ****ing awesome) (Oh good, auto censor…saves me the dilemma of whether or not I should say ****)

“Many of you already know what the “Ultimate” word means in the sfx world…More fun from The Recordist!”

I’d been looking for a proper Thompson sound library for months, and had to put off a project for a whole year due to not being able to complete it the way I wanted to. I read about your Thompson Machine Gun HD Pro SFX Library, purchased it this morning, and am absolutely blown away (no pun intended) by the quality, dynamic range, and versatility of the supplied samples. I can FINALLY finish that project and give it the kick it needed! Truly fantastic stuff. Can’t wait to purchase the other gun packs you have available when I’ve a few more dollars to spare.

I’m a french sound designer and I just wanted to congratulate you for the quality of your libraries. Your work is the best I’ve ever heard and it’s a pleasure to use your sounds to create things (I mostly work for video games). Don’t change anything and keep that level of result! I will continue to buy.
