During this month, our special guest Ric Viers has created an special promotion exclusively for Designing Sound readers, called The Sound Effects Bible Starter Kit, a package that includes three great products at an affordable price. Below are the details:
The Sound Effects Bible
According to George Lucas, “Sound is half the experience”. The Sound Effects Bible is the complete guide to recording, editing, and designing your own sound effects. If it snaps, crackles, pops, crashes, booms or bangs, it can be found somewhere in this first-ever book on the black art of Foley and sound effects. Imagine how your movies will come to life when you use the tried-and-true sound techniques that give films like The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean and There Will Be Blood deeper dimensions in storytelling.
This definitive book covers microphone selection, field recorders, the ABCs of digital audio, understanding digital audio workstations, building your own Foley stage, designing your own editing studio, sound design, and much more.
The Sound Effects Bible Hard Drive
The Sound Effects Bible Hard Drive is a collection of 5,000 sound effects recorded by Ric Viers and his team at the Detroit Chop Shop including close to 2,000 new and previously unreleased sound effects. All of the sounds were recorded at 24/96KHz, along with a small selection of unique 16/44.1KHz sounds that were pulled from the Detroit Chop Shop archives.
The sounds are delivered as 24-Bit/48kHz broadcast .WAV files complete with metadata that is compatible with your favorite search engine and are neatly sorted into 25 category folders: Ambience, Animals, Cartoon, Emergency, Explosions, Fire, Foley, Food, Footsteps, Horror, Horror Production Elements, Household, Humans, Imapcts, Industry, Multimedia, Office, Production Elements, Science Fiction, Sports, Technology, Vehicles, Warfare, Water and Weather.
The Rode Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory for any shotgun microphone up to 325mm in length. Features an adjustable dual hoop suspension system, 3/8″ thread attachment at the base (for boompoles, tripods) and includes an Dead Wombat windshield and tail cable.
Price and Shipping
The price is $699 (retail price of the whole kit would be $1324). It ships worldwide (standard shipping) and it’s available right now.
