Presenting Chainsaw HD Professional Sound Effects Collection. I am one of the lucky few who live in the enchanted land of chain saws. On any given day someone nearby is running one. Whether it’s a homeowner cutting firewood or a professional logging operation, the chain saw sound abounds. I also happen to own a very heavy, loud and obnoxious chain saw that I purchased in 1999 when I was a in my “mountain man” phase. This chain saw is very powerful and has very sharp “logger” skip chain on the bar that cuts through wood like it was butter. I have recorded my chain saw many times over the years and this collection includes some of the finer moments of my cutting down trees and preparing firewood for the winter.
Included are very close up cuts and crazy doppler by’s along with a wide assortment of logging ambient sounds recorded fairly close and very far. Some of the logger ambience tracks have multiple chain saws running at the same time and distant tree falls. The doppler bys were created by yours truly swinging the chain saw very close to a MKH-8040ST microphone set while revving the crap out it. The saw became heavier the more I swung it and bar oil flew all over the place but I endured and got it done. If you need that crazy “zombie saw slasher” whoosh… It’s here. For the not so faint of heart video game sound designer who needs steady idles and high rpm engines loops for their project… they’re here in all their gut tearing glory.
You can experience the “enchanted land of chain saws” without every having to set foot in the forest or hanging on to a noisy, dusty and dirty chain saw. Rev Rev Rev! -Frank
