The Recordist released Ultimate Ice 2.5 HD Pro
Ultimate Ice 2.5 HD Pro Sound Effects Library is a small 24-Bit 96kHz addition to Ultimate Ice 2.0 with some BIG ice cracks and impacts from a perfectly round lake in North Idaho. Also included are fast ripping ice cracks from another 800 acre lake a short distance from Round Lake and some special designed ice sounds from here in the studio.
The extreme low frequency nature of some of these ice recordings are perfect for LFE tracks and as additional elements layered in with higher pitch cracks.

Recordist and editor Gabriele Fasano from Italy launched Surround Ambiences, a library focused on surround recordings.The first collection is available now, called Autumn Wind HD 5.1
Autumn Wind HD 5.1 is a collection of High Definition ambience wind sound effects recorded at 24bit/96khz using a Soundfield SPS200 surround microphone. Included are recordings of strong and medium strong wind taken on a very breezy autumn day. The microphone was placed in the middle of the trees to get the best surround effect of waving leaves. It was also positioned at the centre of a field within a forest to obtain a surround sound perspective from a distance. Some recordings also include birds singing.
