The Recordist is proud to present a whole new series of HD Professional sound effects libraries featuring rare and unique guns. Next in this series is the FN Herstal FAL Battle Rifle. Recorded at a 400 acre ranch in North Idaho with a huge array of microphones and handheld recorders.
Perspectives include: attached, very close, medium and distant. From just a few inches out to 150 meters, this collection offers a wide range of source material. 10 mono and 7 stereo microphones time aligned and level matched provide a “ready to go” set of 24-bit 96k WAV files with detailed Soundminer metadata from this heavy hitting 7.62×51mm NATO full automatic weapon. Single and burst variations are included along with mechanical action “foley” sounds. The weapon recorded is authentic, not a replica.
Gun Background (Wiki):
During the Cold War the FAL was adopted by many countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), with the notable exception of the United States. It is one of the most widely used rifles in history, having been used by more than 90 countries. Because of its prevalence and widespread usage among the militaries of many NATO and first world countries during the Cold War, it was given the title “The right arm of the Free World”.
It is chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge. The British Commonwealth variant of the FAL was redesigned from FN’s metrical FAL into British imperial units and was produced under license as the L1A1 Self-Loading Battle Rifle.
