The Recordist has released a new library, called Ultimate Folliage:
Ultimate Foliage from The Recordist is a one of a kind collection of High Definition foliage sound effects recorded and mastered at 24-Bit 96k. Included in the 196 tracks are over 750 unique leaf, bush, grass and tree branch sounds ranging from the soft subtle rustling of leaves to hard hitting tree limbs. A sound effects collection like no other.
Not just leaves were recorded. There is fruit falling from trees, branches thrown into the forest, hard wood breaks, swishes, rake hits, slithering on dry leaves and so much more.
This library was designed in part to give the sound designer a multitude of foliage textures that can be layered into any stereo or 5.1 natural outdoor soundscape. Also included are many diverse leaf swishes, impacts and rustling from many plant sources including bushes, cattails, ferns, maple tree limbs, hops, fruit trees, grass and more.
Sounds delivered at 96kHz/24-Bit in a 2.1GB zip file (196 sounds). Price is $75
