1. Empty Metal Object IRs
Ranging in size and scale from a tiny soda can to a huge grain silo, sweeps were captured using an MKH8020 mics, stereo where possible with the large objects, while the very small objects were captured using a DPA4060 mic.

2. Pitch shifted IRs at half speed & quarter speed.
Processed versions of each IR are included, pitch shifting and slowing the IR to half speed and quarter speed to expand its use with a wider range of source material via easy preview.

3. Iterated IRs 
As per GLASS IR001, I iterated the process by playing the captured IR back into the same object.

SD052 SOFA SMASH SFX Library

When it comes to creating realistic sound effects, sometimes you have to go to extreme lengths.

For the SD052 SOFA SMASH SFX Library, two old leather sofas were destroyed in order to capture the various sounds of hits, breaks, and impacts. Drops, throws, and drags were also recorded before the sofas were deconstructed into their constituent parts via rips, tears, and general demolition.

The leather covering was recovered and studio recordings were made of leather creaks, flicks, moves, and shakes. Then exterior recordings were made with leather hits & drag on concrete, as well as flicks, shakes, and moves.

Other useful elements included stabs and slicing leather, suspended tension hits (taut and “flappy”) as well as rattles, hits, and moves with the four metal feet from the second sofa. Rips and tears with unique tonality were also recorded with the supporting nylon fabric.

The recordings will be edited and processed to create a unique library of sounds that can be used in a variety of ways, from Foley and sound design to creating ambiances and BGMs.

Leather Jacket Creates a Mixture of Sounds

A leather jacket can be used to create a variety of sound effects. For example, by gently tapping the sides of the jacket, you can create a sound reminiscent of raindrops falling on a window. Or, by crumpling up the jacket and then shaking it, you can create a sound like thunder rumbling in the distance.

Likewise, by running your fingers along the inside of the jacket, you can create a variety of eerie, creepy sounds that are perfect for Halloween. In short, UFX017 LEATHER JACKET sound library of a recorded leather jacket is a versatile tool for creating sound effects that can add atmosphere and dimension to any film or audio production.

Tim Prebble’s (Hissandaroar) Leather Jacket

When Tim Prebble bought his first leather jacket, he had no idea that he would one day become obsessed with the material. But over the years, he has come to appreciate the unique properties of leather.

Leather is strong yet flexible, durable yet soft, and it develops a rich patina over time. Tim’s first jacket was made from a beautifully soft hide, and it quickly became his favorite piece of clothing. It was comfortable and stylish, and it served him well for many years.

But as Tim’s obsession with leather grew, he realized that he wanted to record the sound of leather in all its subtlety and complexity. So he set out to create a library of leather sounds, using two of his own jackets as the source material. The result is a fascinating collection of sounds that captures the unique character of this remarkable material. Thanks to Tim’s obsession, we can now enjoy the sound of leather in all its richness and detail. Who knows what Tim will be obsessing about next?

Tim’s heavy-duty biker’s leather jacket is a beautiful thing. It’s big and bulky, with big zips and beautiful red tartan lining. But it’s not just a pretty face; this jacket has been through some tough times. Tim and his jacket have had some great adventures together, but both are now retired.

Thanks to their age, they produce some lovely characterful leather creaks, but they’re far more subtle than the heavy leather in the SOFA library. Even though they’re retired, Tim and his jacket still have plenty of life left in them. They may not be able to take on the world like they used to, but they can still enjoy each other’s company and create some amazing memories.

UFX017 LEATHER JACKET is available now. It is a 1.28GB download • 2.02GB as 82 x 24bit 96kHz .WAV files with metadata & photos. For a 33% Early Bird Discount please use coupon code: “RIP”, the discount expires May 22nd, 2022.

AMB019 RAIN RHYTHMS, This library is a crossover between an ambiance library and a polyrhythmic pattern library! Selected from over 14 hours of multitrack recordings, captured during two days of Summer rain.

By strategically placing inverted metal trashcans below cracks in the clear light roof of the porch at the back of Tim Prebble’s house, the leaking drips perform very interesting rhythms.

The clear roof of your porch will allow the raindrops to fall directly into the cans, producing a variety of different sounds depending on their size and position.

The library is arranged chronologically, with 12 selections from my earliest recordings up to my most recent ones. Each selection is 5 minutes long and presents a different facet of my work with MKH8040 microphones.

The first recording captures the general ambiance of my work environment, while the second one features the MKH8050 inside a single trashcan, pounded out a beat. Each subsequent recording features a different sound or technique that I have explored with these versatile microphones.

As a result, the library provides a comprehensive overview of my work with MKH8040 microphones and is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring their potential. Thanks for listening!

Following that, there were 17 sequences of 5-minute selections recorded with three trashcan mics throughout the course of a full day’s work.

Each multitrack selection has the starting and ending BPM as well as the intensity and shift in speeds, making it easier to assess. Get AMB019 RAIN RHYTHMS today.
