Drag Racing Library Announced!

So, I've been working for a few months now on a small library of Drag Racing sounds. It takes a while, because they only have legitimate test runs every so often, and sometimes I can't make them. I was able to get a good bit of them recorded this Saturday, however. The place I usually go to is out in the middle of nowhere, and since they were just doing test trails and qualifying (IE, not a single person in the stands), they let me out onto the track to record (I had to stay behind the takeoff point).

Hiss and a Roar Releases New Fireworks Library!

Tim Prebble has released a new sound library through Hiss and a Roar! His 4th Library, Fireworks, is amazing! Recorded over 2 days, with 4 recordists, $600au of specially selected fireworks, a few weeks of tender love and editing, and voila! A new library is born! And it took a bit of dedication too. Here's an excerpt from Tim's blog on the experience: FIREWORKS is a library I have been planning for well over a year. Here in New Zealand fireworks are only sold for one week each year (Guy Fawkes is November 5th) and most years I would buy a bunch of fireworks & record them for my library, and I noticed how often those sounds were handy … [Read more...]
