Ultimate Destruction HD Professional Sound Effects Library is a one-of-a-kind collection of over 600 sounds presented across 217 tracks that will blow your mind. Recorded over a five year period at 24-Bit 96kHz at many dirty, dusty, smelly, noisy, dangerous and physically grueling locations.
Some of the session locations were a office building being torn down, a house being ripped apart, a metal recycling plant and a junk yard. My JD tractor and my one acre outdoor foley area were also used extensively.
There are no heavily processed sound effects here (except the explosions), just the real life destruction action as it happened. Many of the tracks were recorded with multiple extended frequency response microphones at close, medium and distant perspectives. Each category was recorded separately to give you, the sound designer the freedom to layer and process each type of sound individually for the most creative options. Extra long tracks of debris dumps and movements were recorded using concrete, glass, wood and metal so you have enough length to create the ultimate crash sequence.
The majority of the sound effects were recorded outside in a natural environment with no room reflections. Other crazy sounds include: objects thrown into a huge dumpster, an axe thrown against a ceiling light fixture, excavator metal bucket hits, construction trash bin foley and much more.
With this collection your creative options for designing high impact destruction soundscapes for your productions are nearly limitless. You can rest assured that you will not have to get dirty, smelly and exhausted recording the insanity of destruction… I’ve done that for you. Stay safe. Enjoy! -Frank
