Hi all The Recordist fans!

Message from Frank:

In late 2021 Charles contacted me and filled me in on some bullet impact sounds he was creating for his work in a Seal Team episode that had lots of interior gun battles. He built a Soundminer v5 Radium preset with sounds from our sound collection called Bullets Re-Imagined. He added some interior reverb vibe and bounced them out so he could quickly work with them during his crazy ass busy work on the TV show. He liked them so much he wanted to share them. So, here they are in the original designed form and with the Radium preset he used. If you need sounds with no interior vibe, open the preset in Radium and have at it. 1000’s of combinations are at your finger tip. Enjoy! All my love. -Frank
