Rock Recording on April 25 2010
I have a quarry that was blasted out a few years ago nearby. I found an area they blasted that had very large rocks just waiting to be recorded. I climbed up the steep and jagged cliff and pushed, threw and kicked rocks over the side. Dangerous…. but I made it. Below are some sounds. Enjoy! – Frank
Ultimate Rockslide HD Professional Sound Effects Library from The Recordist contains 500 rockslides, boulders, shale, gravel and dirt debris sounds. Recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz over a period of 3 years in North Idaho quarries, gravel pits and my own back yard foley pit.
This diverse collection includes: massive rocks falling down cliffs, huge boulders dropped from a excavator, medium sized impacts and large scraping stone movements. Small stones, dirt, sand and gravel debris round out this one of a kind sound effects library. Multiple performances and variations make this a valuable source of rock and dirt based sound effects for the professional sound designer. From the smallest pebbles falling to massive boulders being dropped from above this sound library has the widest possible range of rock based assets you will find.
