Review: ModeAudio Hover drones & textures

ModeAudio Hover

With the Hover sample library, ModeAudio takes on the world of drones and textures.

Packed full of strange, floating tones, waves of noise, rasping, metallic textures, deep bass and circuit-bent synths, this release brings you 100 carefully prepared atmospheres to pour seamlessly over your mixes.

All the sounds move to their own internal rhythm, dancing and metamorphosing into exciting, unusual sonic forms.

The samples are categorized in 6 folders:

  • Ambiances (30)
  • Bass Drones (20)
  • Guitar Drones (10)
  • Metallic Drones & Textures (10)
  • Noise Drones & Textures (15)
  • Synth Drones (15)

The ambiance themes come with 3 samples each that can be layered. So you have something like a main bass or synth drone sound that you can layer with a texture, soundscape, some noise fx, etc. Other folders simply have a collection of individual 20 to 58 second recordings.

All files have descriptive titles including an indication of the type of sound, where applicable (noise, texture, bass, scape, etc).

The audio clip below demonstrates some of the sounds included in this pack.

So what do I think?

Product: Hover by ModeAudio
Format: Wav (44.1kHz/24 bit)
Price: £15 GBP
Like: Nice variety of sounds, well designed
Don’t like: some samples could be longer
Verdict: 8/10

Dark brooding bass, evocative melodic guitar scapes, sputtering noises, otherworldly synths, rhythmic crackles, reverb drenched goodness…

ModeAudio has recorded a nice variety of sounds using a diverse collection of sound sources. These drones and textures are on the more creative end of the genre, with lots of movement and dynamics. I personally like this a lot, but for some of the samples I really wish they were longer to allow a more elaborate development of the sound.

In short, the Hover pack includes a lovely bunch of well designed, quality samples that are great for cinematic/underscore works, game soundtracks, ambient music, and more.

Chuck Russom FX releases Guns: Volume 1

Chuck Russom FX Guns: Volume 1

Chuck Russom FX has launched Guns: Volume 1, a multi-channel HD sound effects library featuring recordings of 12 weapons firing live rounds in an outdoor environment.

In Summer of 2014, Chuck Russom FX sent a team of recordists to the Arizona Desert to record sounds for an epic collection of guns. Multiple microphones were placed at close, medium, and distant perspectives. High resolution (24 bit 96K) audio was recorded to 20 tracks using high-end professional recorders, microphones, and preamps. After an extensive recording process, we came away with 55 gigabytes of raw source recordings to build this library from.

The result was a collection so big, that it had to be split into two libraries. Each Handgun, Semi Auto Rifle, and Bolt Action Rifle includes multiple single shots (10 or more). Submachine Guns, Assault Rifles, and Machine guns inlcude multiple single shots, bursts, and long bursts (generally 20 rounds or more). Every gun in the library features sounds from 10-16 microphone positions, covering close, medium, and distant perspectives.

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $150 USD until September 1st, 2014 (regular $175 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).
