The Recordist is pleased to announce GUNFALL (One) HD Professional. The first in a series of sound collections that feature gun drops, kicks, slides, drags, butt stock hits and general mechanical handling layers from a variety of firearms. Featuring handguns, assault rifles, bolt action rifles and shotguns (double barrel & tactical) against a wide selection of surfaces. Also included are interior and exterior versions for a few surfaces.

This collection of over 3000 sounds was recorded with a Schoeps MS microphone set to a Sound Devices recorder. The files are decoded stereo from the original raw MS source. The Schoeps MK4/MK8 combination produced a very natural sound and summing to mono is perfect. Thanks! -Frank

On March 16, 2018 I had the chance to use the new Rycote Stereo Cyclone Kit 5 for the Schoeps CMC MS microphone setup. This was the first time I had it outside in very windy conditions (from the UH-60 Blackhawk blades) I have to say I’m very impressed with the way the Cyclone handled the heavy wind as the helicopter started up and turned away.

Free Tire Sounds on Dry and Wet Dirt

Lately I’ve seen many requests on social media for car tire noise on dirt and pavement so I rigged up a down and dirty AT-835ST and MKH8040 microphone combination to my Tahoe SUV and went for a drive. As the sun came up and melted the roads I drove around some more on slightly wet dirt roads… with puddles.
