— TONSTURM has released his fourth sound effects pack, called The Windhowler:
This Soundpack is based on the recordings of the very rare Mole-Richardson Windhowler Moleeffect Type 2281. During extensive recording sessions we captured every aspect of this inimitable sound effect instrument. All sounds are recorded, edited and mastered in HD Audio @ 24 Bit, 96 KHz. With TONSTURM 04 I The Windhowler you get 44 haunting wind sound effects. Split into 24 original and 20 carefully designed sound effects created by using the source recordings only. 4.21 GB (@96 kHz).
More details about the machine and the pack here. Available at 49 €.
— Daniel Gooding has released The Sonic Beatbox. As with the first release some of the money will go to charity.
Almost 300 recordings of different vocally produced sounds. Great for working with abstract sound design, or layering with other sounds for a human element. Over 100 designed sounds, produced entirely from the vocal recordings, and show many of the possibilities. For musicians, there are over 50 individual samples, of vocally produced drum sounds, just put them in your favorite sampler, and start playing instantly. Also included are some simple beatbox loops, that you can throw right into a mix, if you want a quick beatbox sound in your track. Each File is recorded in 24-bit 96kHz.
