The Recordist Releases Prop Planes 2 HD and Beech 58P Airplane HD
The Recordist has released two airplane sfx libraries:
Prop Planes 2 HD ($35.00 | 35 files at 96kHz/24-Bit)
It’s hard to believe a whole year has passed since the 5th Annual Sandpoint fly in and on August 13, 2011 I traveled to the Sandpoint Idaho Airport and recorded the 6th Annual Fly In. Included are 24-Bit 96K recordings presented as Broadcast WAV files with full Soundminer 4 Metadata of a variety of small modern and vintage aircraft on the ground and in the ripping through air. Included are high speed passes, take offs, landings and ground taxi bys. There is also a J5 Wright powered 1928 Stearman C3B starting its engine and taxiing down the tarmac that I was fortunate enough to get at the end of the show. The owner wanted the sound for his cell phone ring tone. I recorded the graceful aircraft as it was departing and flying by.
Beech 58P Aurplane HD ($75 | 78 files at 96kHz/24-Bit)
Presenting the Beechcraft Baron 58P propeller plane sound effects collection. The Beechcraft Baron is a light, twin-engined piston aircraft originally developed by Beech Aircraft Corporation and currently manufactured by the Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. The Baron is a variant of the Beechcraft Bonanza, and was first introduced in 1961. Since its inception, the Baron has always been near the top of the light airplane hierarchy. Expensive as it is to buy and to operate, the ‘next step up’ from a Baron is a very big one. Faster aircraft, with greater range and more load-carrying capability are generally turbine-powered and far more expensive.
Barons come in two basic types: the Baron 55 (short body) and Baron 58 (long body), with several subtypes. Introduced in 1970, the more powerful Baron 58 has club seating, double aft doors, and a gross weight of 5400–5500 lb (2450–2500 kg).
I had the opportunity to record much of this airplane and this collection is the result. Recorded at 24-bit 96kHz in stereo and mono this library contains 3 gigabytes of the many sounds this plane generates.
Also, Frank has published very informative posts on his blog talking about the recording sessions for these libraries. You can take a look at The Recordist blog.
