For over 7 years I have been casually recording all kinds of moving vehicles. Most of these sound effects were captured without any session planning or any idea of what I was going to get. I would setup whatever microphone or hand-held recorder was closest at the time and just let it run. Sometimes I would hear a construction vehicle or truck approaching and quickly grab a piece of gear and try and record it as it was passing by. Most of the time I ended up with something but sometimes just air. Whenever I heard a motor near the yard or out in the forest I would attempt to record it. Sometimes I would get up close and personal and other times I would let the recording device run for hours while I did something else back at the house. It was always hit and miss but what you get in theis collection are the hits.
The pass by’s in this collection cover a broad range of motors. From smooth high speed passes to slow sputtering drive by’s this one of a kind set of sounds has them and everything in between. Long background ambiences of rural paved and dirt roadways are also included for those scenes where some “background traffic” is required.
Crazy doppler pass by effects can be created by pitching the sounds up or down and adding your favorite spicey plug-in process. Have fun and remember: never put your microphone directly in front of a moving vehicle (No, I did NOT do that, just some friendly advice).
I've decided to release this collection in two stages. Stage Two will include suppressors introduced to the market in the last year. These amazing "cans" as the gun folk call them, include the latest sound suppression technologies and advanced manufacturing processes known to man. The "cans" are on the way... The "Tax Stamp" wait can be frustrating but it is well worth it.
Producing this library has been a labor of love for me and I have had to re-think my recording techniques while recording these guns. Because of the lower SPL of the guns and the functional aspects of using subsonic ammunition I strived to acquire the cleanest and most unique sounds I could without Losing my mind. Some of these suppressors were so quiet that there was virtually no "report" from the gun shot. The mechanical noise from the gun and the bullet leaving the barrel is very apparent in most of the tracks. This makes for some fantastic "Gun Mech" style sounds that I hope you will find useful alone or combined with other gun sounds.
As with most of the gun sound effects collections available from The Recordist you get the source, processed and specially designed versions of all the suppressors. Also include are many photos and the trailer video for your enjoyment.

More than two years of recording has finally come to an end for this rain sound effects collection. Presenting Rural Rain HD Professional SFX Library. This is a unique collection of all natural rain tracks, nothing faked or staged, this is the real deal. Recorded at various locations in rural North Idaho this collection includes over 3 hours of interior and exterior perspectives.
Recording rain has it's challenges as many of you may know and one of the most difficult aspects of recording the sound of rain is getting clean, detailed recordings free of obtrusive noises like cars, planes, animals, humans etc. This library was painstakingly recorded in very quiet environments, sometimes at night or during the colder seasons of the year. The storms that passed through here during the last couple of years brought some terrific torrential downpours and beautiful steady showers. Thunder also makes an appearance in some of the tracks along with some birds, they do need a bath now and then.
A portion of the library is from spontaneous storms that caught me by surprise so I used a high quality hand held recorder (Sony PCM D100 - they come in very handy) to quickly get in position to capture the intense downpours and soft rainfall that would magically appear out of nowhere. Sometimes, using the Sony PCM D100 recorder was the only way to record the rain as it was easy to place and keep from getting wet. A majority of the remaining sounds were recorded with a MKH-8040ST microphone setup either in XY or ORTF of both.
I hope you enjoy this collection of rain sound effects, I very much enjoyed recording it as rain is one of my favorite sounds. When auditioning the sounds try and listen and lower volumes as these types of sounds tend to be used as ambient background layers. Just adjusting the volume can bring out different aspects in the character of the rain.
