HISS and a ROAR releases Heavy Metal Impacts

HISS and a ROAR has launched Heavy Metal Impacts, a sound fx library featuring 1,900+ high resolution Metal SFX.

Hiss and a Roar Heavy Metal Impacts

We’ve spent the last few months recording metal impacts using props ranging in size from massive empty grain silos & a five ton concrete block through to truck decks, metal rubbish skip bins, an industrial digger scoop & a collection of resonant props.

Captured multi channel using Sennhesier MKH8040 ORTF stereo, MKH8050 and AKG D112 microphones, this library is our heftiest yet, delivering 32GB of 24bit 192khz audio (16GB download) and a huge creative resource for practical & creative sound design.

The library is available for the introductory price of $119 USD until November 1st, 2014 (regular $179 USD).

HISS and a ROAR releases Tortured Wood sound library

HISS and a ROAR has released Tortured Wood, a unique 7GB sound library featuring the sounds of breaking wood.

HISS and a ROAR Tortured Wood

Tortured Wood? Hell yes! We’ve spent the last month breaking wood, slamming 40kg poles into stacks of debris, throwing pallets, planks and furniture around as loudly as possible! We also tortured wood in our quiet foley room, rendering half a dozen baskets into kindling & capturing some truly nasty crunches, creaks and breaks.

Primarily captured with Sennheiser MKH8040 ORTF microphones, we also used contact mics at times (although its very difficult to keep them attached to disintegrating wood!) We also captured some of the louder moments to Nagra 4.2 which will be released as a free update to this library, once final demonising is complete.

The library is available for the introductory price of $79 USD until August 9th, 2014 (regular $99 USD).

HISS and a ROAR releases Rivers and Streams

Rivers and Streams

HISS and a ROAR has announced the release of the Rivers and Streams sound fx library.

During my 2 month road trip down south recording LAKES I also recorded a lot of RIVER ambiences, and ever since have continued to search for streams and creeks, all with the aim of creating an ambience library which is able to scale: from a trickle to a roar…

The results? 8GB of 24 bit 96kHz rivers & streams!

Recorded with my favourite multi-microphone rig (Sennheiser MKH8040 ORTF pair, MKH70 pair and DPA 4060 omni pair) this library is perfect for layering, cutting perspectives and creating complex composite ambiences…

The sample pack is available for purchase for the introductory price of $33 USD until June 7th, 2014 (regular $49 USD).

HISS and a ROAR releases Contact Mic 2

Related: , , Posted in news on May 05, 2014 - comment 0 comments

HISS and a ROAR has announced the release of its Contact Mic 2 sound library.

HISS and a ROAR Contact Mic 2

Devoid of acoustics and rich in resonance the resulting sounds retain their organic nature but the purely vibrational means of capture can obscure the origins of the sounds, making them invaluable for layering and editing while also responding to processing in unique ways.

This is a big incredibly diverse library: over 1,900 new sounds
12GB of 24bit 192kHz stereo/dual mono (6.5GB download)

The sample pack costs $99 USD. An introductory discount is available until May 9th, 2014.
