Presenting the Beechcraft Baron 58P propeller plane HD Pro sound effects collection. The Beechcraft Baron is a light, twin-engined piston aircraft originally developed by Beech Aircraft Corporation and currently manufactured by the Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. The Baron is a variant of the Beechcraft Bonanza, and was first introduced in 1961. Since its inception, the Baron has always been near the top of the light airplane hierarchy. Expensive as it is to buy and to operate, the ‘next step up’ from a Baron is a very big one. Faster aircraft, with greater range and more load-carrying capability are generally turbine-powered and far more expensive.
Barons come in two basic types: the Baron 55 (short body) and Baron 58 (long body), with several subtypes. Introduced in 1970, the more powerful Baron 58 has club seating, double aft doors, and a gross weight of 5400–5500 lb (2450–2500 kg).
I had the opportunity to record much of this airplane and this collection is the result. Recorded at 24-bit 96kHz in stereo and mono this library contains 3 gigabytes of the many sounds this plane generates.
I Used a Sanken CSS-5 and the Sennheiser MKH-8040ST for the exteriors and a Sony PCM-D1 and D-50 for the interiors. The CSS-5 and MKH-8040ST microphones were each connected to a Sound Devices SD-702 that were sync locked together. The CSS-5 was on a boom pole and the MKH-8040ST mounted on a small profile stand. During the exterior movements the CSS-5 was Used to track the plane as it moved and the MKH-8040 was usually pointed in one direction and only rarely did I move it during the planes action.
For the interior flight I Used a Sony D-50 for the first flight which the ground taxiing and pass bys were recorded. The recorder was placed in between the rear facing seats in the passenger cabin. For the second flight I added a front facing Sony PCM-D1 and the files are edited to sync together for a quad experience.
For the other aspects of the plane like the wing flaps, rudder, switches, yoke, etc. I used a Sennheiser MKH-416 for the exterior and a Sennheiser MKH-8040 for the interior. They are sync-locked together and are provided as separate tracks and in combination.
