Schweizer Helicopter

Now available: Schweizer 300CB HD Pro

Introducing the Schweizer 300CB helicopter sound library. Recorded on two occasions here in Idaho at my favorite “quiet” airport. Starts, stops, auto rotations and general flying are included from both interior and exterior perspectives. Multiple distances were also captured to give you a wide set of perspectives to use in your sound design. The product page has a video showing quite a bit of the flying with audio clips from the library. Read more

THE HAWK has been updated!

Over 5GB of new exterior and interior sounds! Using a Soundfield ST-450 MKII, interior B-Format Ambisonic sounds from ground runs and a 30 minute flight are featured in their entirety. I was also able to crouch under the nose of the UH-60 as it was performing a ground test and recorded the blades spinning overhead… Yes, that was intense! I also placed a microphone in a open wind for a fantastic mix of interior and exterior. Close up engine starts/stops were also captured. Stereo versions from the Soundfield ST-450 MKII are included.

You can probably tell I love recording helicopters. I can hear them coming from miles away as I sit in my studio working on stuff I should be working on.
