Wind Design Instrument introductory offer ends in a couple of hours!

With Windmaschine TONSTURM is proud to present a playable VSTI that is a faithful reproduction of the Windhowler Mole Effect but also takes it to a whole new level. Manually perform breathtaking wind sound effects in real-time.

The Windhowler is an electrical instrument developed in the 1960s which can produce unique wind sound effects with a very special sound signature. Only a few devices exist on the entire planet and luckily we had access to a unit in mint condition.

We captured every single detail in order to preserve its sound signature and character. In combination with our visionary software engine, these captured recordings are transformed into a virtual instrument that allows you to go to sonic territories way beyond what the original device is capable of.

Inspired by Richard Devine

Inspired by Richard Devine, Tonsturm also recorded burning wood embers underwater. Tonsturm captured the weirdest chirping and clattering from an out-of-this-world jungle chorus with our Ambient ASF-1 MarkII hydrophones on a nine-day recording session in Borneo!

Burning during countless sessions

Countless recording sessions took place to serve you the most impressive fire sound effects library available. You can find sounds that will make your next project pop with creativity and power, including:

A pile of wood burning in a fireplace; Water boiling on an open flame or gas stovetop; Crushing ice as it falls through deep snowfall more than 40 feet straight down onto the hard ground where volunteers gather around trying not to be hit by flying chunks of frozen water vapor moisture!

Some of the included effects were recorded in acoustically diverse environments like abandoned protection bunkers and industry halls. Huge fireballs whoosh bursts gasoline trails black power or various torches lycopodium flashes were captured by microphones positioned for an engaging sound design experience on both exterior shots as well interior ones too!

Sound of the festival

The sound of the festival was covered by multiple microphone setups featuring different flavors and perspectives. There were AKG, Schoeps Sennheiser microphones to capture every aspect from near field audio recordings or instrumentals at the head level through tree canopy’s with Shure Beta 57A’s pointing up high; even subwoofers made themselves heard when needed!

Subtle Air Motions Ambiance Library

MOTION OF AIR AMBIENCE LIBRARY is a library of TONSTURM’s subtle and steady air motion ambiances. Toned recordings with a broad range of wind energy contrast in different flavors of air, like Tension, Calm, Enthusiastic, and Relaxed. This library contains all the atmospheres you need to create an immersive experience for your project.

What is the motion of wind?

Air sounds for outdoor settings are one of the more challenging aspects of sound design. It’s generally a good idea to have at least one sound effect in each scene that captures the pace of action. If you’re using field recordings, they should be loud enough that your audience can hear them while reading on an airplane or in a car. It’s also essential to have some variety in the background noises so people don’t get bored with them while looking at the scene.

How did TONSTURM create this library? TONSTURM recorded subtle motions of wind by using long exposure sounds to capture steady air motion over a broad range of wind energy. This means that you can use these recordings for both outdoor and indoor environments, where people will be hearing medium-distance sound effects. TONSTURM has assigned wind energy to each one of these recordings by using different tonal characteristics that are associated with various forms of emotional expression.

A TONSTURM library is useful for creating an immersive atmosphere in your project, whether you’re working on a film, TV series, or any kind of video game.

The Silence soundpack has 21 differently beautiful sounding air sounds, some just quiet, some with a very light motion of the wind.

Sustaining a large amount of wind noise in an open area, such as a field or meadow, will result in the noises being perceived to be less. In fact, they’ll appear rather thin and wispy. If you’re recording near bare or conifer trees, on the other hand, the wind sounds more broad, constant, and loud. TONSTURM managed to cover everything from subtle air to stormy wind.  The sounds can help you produce a nice and smooth background track, or let it rage.

How do you make a wind sound?

Wind noise is a lot more difficult to capture than just a couple of footsteps. The wind has a broad range of wind energy, and it can do a lot more than just rustle the leaves on the trees. It’s always going to be faster depending on where you are, but it also varies in strength, from light breezes to thunderstorms. TONSTURM managed to capture all of these different varieties of sound so that people can use them for their projects, whether they need subtle background noises or plenty of stormy sounds. TONSTURM’s library is available for download on their website.

What TONSTURM does best is capturing different varieties of wind noise, without being too loud or quiet. TONSTURM has also assigned each recording with a certain emotion that can help inspire your own projects when you’re working on them. If TONSTURM’s sounds are too busy for you, TONSTURM also has a selection of light air ambiances in their library.

Extremely clean sound

All TONSTURM recordings have an extremely clean sound because they were captured through long exposure methods to capture the subtleties of wind energy over time. TONSTURM’s recording sessions were also captured using Tascam DR-07MKII portable stereo recorders with MKH 8040 microphones. TONSTURM has used these recording devices to capture the ambient sounds of air ambiance in some very interesting places, like caves and ponds.

The TONSTURM recordings were done at 96 kHz/24 bits.

TONSTURM sees “Motion Of Air” as the perfect companion to their Rushing Wind and Gusty Wind sound packs. The silent air and the broader wind sounds complement our natural wind libraries quite well.

Pricing and Availability

MOTION OF AIR is available as a 2.0 STEREO or 5.0 SURROUND version. I would recommend to go or the 5.0 SURROUND version, even if you do not work with surround/atmos today. See also Logic Pro- Dolby Atmos and Spatial Audio now built into Logic Pro

The main challenge for TONSTURM actually was to get permission to perform big explosion effects inside a building. After long research, TONSTURM found an abandoned flight hanger – the perfect location with different sized rooms providing a huge variety of indoor acoustic space where TONSTURM could romp around with their explosives.

TONSTURM recorded this library with professional sound design work in mind and captured every explosion with multiple channels, featuring different microphone characteristics and perspectives. Besides the many close and medium perspective options to pick from, this library also provides beautiful sounding 5.0 omnichannel recordings captured from the distance.
