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).
