Description : BRIGHT SOUNDSCENES OF THE DESERT
An amazing new library of nature sound effects awaits you: DESERTS – WEATHER & WILDLIFE from our remarkable series of high quality nature recordings by Emmy Award winner and nature recording genius Gordon Hampton.
DESERTS are simple, spacious and lack echoes. Quiet prevails. Even so, you’ll want to challenge your audience, jolt them from their comfortable seats and immerse them in this inhospitable habitat. Do not be afraid to use harsh insects, driving winds, or even startle your listeners with a sudden, loud, unexplained alarm call of a strange bird nearby. Then settle them with expansive concerts, such as a reassuring gecko chorus composed of thousands of point-source clicks in step with the setting sun. All this is included in DESERTS – WEATHER & WILDLIFE which gives sound designers the easiest access to super-authentic soundscapes.
COVERING EVERY ANGLE
We offer you super-clean sounds from different deserts (temperate vs tropical), different times of day (morning, day, dawn) and different weather conditions. In addition you get very rare and clean sounds of desert wildlife.
GET THE SURROUND EXPERIENCE
Surround ambiences are the closest approach to nature’s true and original vivid sound. Once given the opportunity to unfold their true acoustic potential, these fabulous 5.0 surround recordings will surely keep you from accepting any less in the future.
WHAT WE RECORDED
We made use of some really rare and vintage but also modern and unique analog devices such as the Ampex AG-440 analog tape recorder from 1969, the NED Synclavier, Yamaha CS-60, Rhodes Chroma, E-Mu Emulator II, – just to mention a few of them.
Here are some of the devices we recorded to design the unique sound we had in mind.
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS LIBRARY?
Compose a well-tuned desert concert, performed under free-field conditions which makes desert soundscapes unique, even awe-inspiring, especially for listeners imagining the landscape from the singular sounds. Desert soundscapes are the Haiku poems of bioacoustic recitals. Each message or animal sound is structured to convey the most information while also expanding the least energy. They sound spacious with a preponderance of prevailing quiet – except during the most active times of year and day.
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST & EMMY-WINNER
All of the nature sounds in the QUIET PLANET Nature SFX series were recorded by Gordon Hempton, The Sound Tracker®, Emmy-winner, author of One Square Inch of Silence, and environmental activist. Faced with habitat loss, species extinction and most of all unbridled noise pollution, Hampton has now turned his attention towards saving the world’s few remaining natural amphitheaters.
BOOM Library sound FX come as WAV files, meaning you can import and work with them in any software that can handle this file type. Here are the most common audio and video editing software tools that work perfectly with our sound FX.
RICH METADATA EMBEDDED
To provide you with the fastest and easiest workflow possible, all files contain extensive metadata like file description & keywords to quickly find the sounds you’re looking for. Metadata can be read and processed by audio management tools. Some digital audio workstations feature an included search tool that can also read embedded metadata.
