A Sound Effect has announced the release of a free sample pack featuring over 1GB of surround sound ambiences from forests, canyons, parks and wetlands.
My name is Rick Hernandez, I am a Sr. Sound Designer at Respawn Entertainment & Lead Sound Designer and Field Recordist at Melee Sound Design.
I’ve been recording out on the field for many years, but last year I decided to peruse it at a higher level and the result was the soundpack RUPTURE which is published by SoundMorph.
Recently I got inspired to go out on the field again to record surround ambiences when I rewatched the Soundtacker movie, which is a film about iconic audio recordist Gordon Hempton.
Field recordist and senior sound designer Rick Hernandez went on a surround recording trip in the US recently, equipped with a DPA 5100 mobile surround microphone and a Zoom F8 recorder.
He captured a range of recordings from the Angeles National Forest, Ballona Wetlands, Simi Valley Canyon and Two Strike Park. Those surround recordings – and the story behind them – are now available as a free (+1GB) download on A Sound Effect.
In order to get the samples, a valid email is required for the download link. You will also be subscribed to A Sound Effect’s newsletter.
