Drag Racing Library Released!

I've just announced the release of my new drag racing library, "My Hart is Racing!" This heart-pounding library is 1.2gb in size, 46 files wide, and 37 minutes long. It includes, dragsters, jr dragsters, super sport cars, bikes, imports, and more! There's even a 7 minute qualifying heat included that comes unedited! Tons of good source for some epic sound design! For this week only, while I'm at AES, I'm offering this library at a discount. Normally it will be $20, but until I return home from San Francisco, you can purchase it for just $10! The trick is that you'll have to find my promo code to get the discount! I'll post it on … [Read more...]

Download Woes Fixed

A few people who have downloaded the Industrial HD Complete Library experienced a problem with either the downloading or unarchiving of the files, due to their large (and therefore sometimes unstable) nature. I have since been able to fix the problem and get everything up and running again. If you have experienced any troubles downloading these or any other HartFX libraries, please contact me and I will get you the proper links to fix it! FYI, if you are on a Mac, use UnRarX to unarchive everything, not Stuffit! Stuffit likes crashing a lot... Thank you and happy editing! … [Read more...]

HartFX at AES

I'm heading out to San Francisco next month (Nov 3-8) to hit up the AES Convention. It's going to be a great time! Planning a big meet up with all the SSD and Twitter sound guys that will be there. Definitely let me know if you're going to be around and I'll fill you in on the details! Hopefully I'll have a bit of swag / merch with me. Probably a few t-shirts, hats, stickers, etc... with the HartFX Burning Heart logo on them. BTW, the logo was designed by amazing graphic and sound designer Nathan Moody. He did a stand up job! Looking forward to AES! … [Read more...]

HartFX Launched!

HartFX has finally set sail! After a long wait, a number of delays, and more work than I care to think back on, I've finally got everything up and running. I would like to give a big thank you to everybody who helped me out along the way! Today I'm launching my first library, Industrial 001, which is HUGE! Over 22GB of audio! It's a very unique library, containing over 1000 sounds and recorded on 8 microphones. I don't think I've seen a library like this before. Go check it out! Also, I will be releasing a second library next week, so keep checking back on that one! There's a promo up in case you'd like to check it out. Please take a … [Read more...]
