Cinematic hits, metal impacts and many new free sound effects just added

It’s been another hectic week here at Not only have we been busy recording more sound effects, but we’ve also been constructing a new small studio live room, well more a booth, so we can work from our office.

Already delivered are 40 new acoustic foam tiles, new microphone stands, a shiny new Sony PCM D100 recorder for more location work and a few other bits. All that’s left to do is build a moveable wall for the foam tiles and we’re away… We’ll add pictures when we have some.

New free sound effects…

First up we got our hands on some empty gas canisters of various sizes. Now what do do with those? Hit them, drag them and generally get as many metal sound effects as we can. So we’ve just added the results… check them our here.

Using those recordings we mashed them up using pitch shifting and a few other processing effects and then ran them through the Waves Trueverb, a fantastic little reverb plugin that’s simple to use with excellent results. It’s very affordable too so well worth buying. The results were some great little cinematic hits and impact sounds in our Sound Design category.

We also created this interesting metallic drone sound effect by heavy processing one of the hits, reversing it, applying reverbs and delays and then reversing back…

All of these sounds were recorded in the Sony PCM D100 recorder. We basically just wanted to test it out and I can say it was a worthy purchase.
