Here are all of the libraries of note we’ve spotted since the last round-up back in the beginning of April…in the order of most recent first (working from here…so forgive me if I’ve confused dates).

Presenting Machine Guns HD Pro Sound Effects Library. This 24-Bit/96kHz collection features four fully automatic weapons recorded at a wide open 400 acre ranch in North Idaho. With a mountain ridge in front and open field behind, the guns generated a breathtaking echo while at the same time the “close up and personal” microphones capture the intense muzzle blast and mechanics of each weapon in stunning detail.
It’s been a while since we put one of these together…what’s going on in the world of independent sfx right now? Some people appear to have been on the same wavelength.
All tension creaking, and breaking sounds in this library, were recorded inside a dense pine tree forest in Sweden. Particular for this hidden gem of a location is, that the distance to the nearest bigger road is apx. 10 Km, and further more, the location being surrounded by tall pine trees, makes the chance of any wind very low.
At night, all you can hear is the pulsing rush of blood beating in your own ears. Its so silent, its almost scary.

Me: Did we mention Tim Prebble’s new library Tortured Cymbals this month?
Myself: You know, I don’t think we did.
I: Why not?! Tim puts together some amazing libraries.
Me: I don’t know. That’s a pretty awful oversight on my part. I’m an idiot!
Myself: You are!
I: As long as we’re all in agreement. Now let’s get this post up.
Mikkel Nielsen, founder of Sonic Salute, recently released a new library called “Analog Cameras.” In his own words:
What started out as a somewhat smaller camera sound effects recording project, quickly evolved into an obsessive need to find new cameras with different sounding shutters and winders.
Every fleemarket, and camera entusiasts gathering, were thoroughly scanned for more, more more…
The obsessive hunt has resulted in a well produced library. And at the price of $40 dollars for 99 files culled from a stock of 17 cameras, it’s well worth your attention. Let’s dig into the sounds a little deeper…
June’s featured sound designer, Coll Anderson, has been working on some new ideas for his personal site recently. The photo above comes from a short post titled, Idea of the day…
It’s a funny little collection of some workflow thoughts that are worth the read. So head over there to check out what’s going on in that photo.
And while you’re at it, check out some of the quality sound effects libraries that Coll has for sale. There are some very cool sounds available, here are some examples from his Gore library:EFX SD Gore Various by C. A. Sound, Inc.
