Ultimate Snow 2 HD Professional Sound Effects Library is a reissue of Snowfall HD and Snowballs HD Ultra together in one collection with a few new sounds included. Recorded over the 2010-2011 winter season here in beautiful North Idaho, this 24-bit 96kHz collection contains 94 multi-take Broadcast WAV files totaling 425 individual snow sounds.
There are a wide variety of snow falling sounds recorded in some seriously freezing weather conditions. I recorded dozens of takes of snow falling off trees, numerous powder snow impacts and granular snow debris drops off my back porch. My porch has a 20 foot height so the snow had plenty of time to disperse and impact on the ground in a very graceful way.
I also fired up the John Deere tractor and dumped massive chunks of snow from the bucket with the engine off. They were quite frozen and when they hit the ground they burst into a million pieces.
The snowball sound effects were captured in many types of snow conditions. Wet, dry, normal cold and extremely frigid snowballs were dropped, hit, kicked, rolled, slid, rubbed, scraped and crushed along with very big chunks of snow dropped from my trusty JD tractor.
Highlights include: Large heavy snowball impacts, movements on very dry cold snow pack and falling down snowbanks. Some of the intense tension rubs and squeaks make for perfect avalanche and snow glaciers breaking apart. Medium and small snowballs are also included and round out this diverse collection of snowball effects.
