Recording The Lake here in North Idaho on a very windy day.
Over the past few months I had the honor of beta testing the Oxford Envolution plug-in from Sonnox. I normally don’t plug a plug-in directly but in this case I really want to share my experience using this new envelope shaper on the latest addition to my Suppressed Weapons Sound FX library. Right off the bat I will say WOW! I’ve never experienced such a unique and powerful transient and sustain manipulator. I’ve used many including their TransMod plugin and always find new and exciting ways to enhance the sound effects I include in my libraries with envelope shaping.
Suppressed Weapons Update
Stage 2 recording and post production has been underway all summer and continues into the Fall. So far over 15 location recording sessions have been completed, some small and some large. Many locations were used to provide the sound designer with an abundance of unique spaces. Close and distant microphones were used that can be mixed and matched to produce realistic and not so realistic suppressor sounds. I have a few more recording sessions planned that should round out the collection.
Coming very soon from THE RECORDIST: Suppressed Weapons HD Professional Sound Effects Library. The first of it’s kind, this collection is dedicated to the sound of suppressors. For the last year I have been recording various gun suppressors in the wilds of North Idaho. This new collection includes some of the quietest suppressors on the market today. If you have ever been near a full auto M-16 machine gun without a suppressor you know how LOUD it is. Well, it’s been completely tamed with a very fine suppressor. Stage 1 is nearing completion and will be available in just a few days. Stage 2 will be recorded this fall with a completely different set of suppressors. Stay tuned for more information.
Check out the teaser videos on what’s to come:
Ultimate Wood II HD Pro SFX Library recording is underway! Much more to come.
Wood Barn Be Gone: Published on Apr 28, 2015
This video has the audio track from a MKH-8040 ST Microphone System. Recorded at 24-bit 96kHz to a Sound Devices 702.
Lots of this wood from this dusty old barn will be reclaimed. Very fine wood and made some very fine sounds. Next up: Total destruction with a giant claw. More photos to come.
