Presenting Firearm Foley: Vintage Rifles 2 HD Professional Sound Effects Library. Recorded with a pair of Sennheiser microphones, one positioned to the side of the gun and the other at the front to a Sound Devices 702 recorder at 24 Bit / 96kHz. This collection showcases mechanical operation and handling sounds from 8 classic rifles spanning the Spanish-American War to the Vietnam War… and beyond. The fantastic pitch change ability of the MKH-8050 along with the hollywood “shotgun” sound of the MKH-416 give you many options when designing rifle handling sounds.
Each track contains a multitude of takes of each action so you always have enough material for alternating sounds in game audio and film. The standard operating actions were performed including bolt cycling (empty and with ammo), magazine insert/eject (empty and loaded), triggers, switches, levers, sight adjusting, bayonet, hand grabs along with various movements and shaking. Manual bullet loading, Stripper Clips, WWII ammo pack handling and spent shell casing drops are also included.
The guns used to create this collection were in very good condition. They were well oiled and clean. The sounds are bright, and solid with no artifacts or extranious noises. Blued steel and decades old wood stock give these rifles a distinct sound not heard with today’s rifles made of modern plastics and composite materials.
