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