After downloading the Max pack I'd like to report that they sound awful, are priced unreasonably, and are poorly organized.

Please nobody else buy them. I should be the only person in posession of these horrid, nasty sfx.

</sarcasm>

Best $50 I've spent in a long time! Thanks Tim, great work!! I've spent a lot of time recording, editing and organizing my own sfx so I realize how much work this must have been.

I for one would love to see more of stuff like this. Rather than pay thousands for large libraries, I love being able to spend $50 here and there for specialized libraries. Don't get me wrong, I know everyone needs the General series, but this is fantastic stuff.

Just bought your Vegetable Violence library today, as well as Chuck's library, hope to pick this one up soon! Love your session pics. Looks fun, albeit a bit painful at times...

Guess I'll chime in also. My custom sounds are available also.
Check out: The Recordist - Soundbox - Royalty Free Downloadable Sound Effects Collections

Soon I'll be releasing collections in the way Tim and Chuck are doing now.
Man, those sounds from them are awesome!

If your looking for thunder, fire, rocks, etc. I have them.

Thanks for this post, this new model is much needed. Thank you Tim and Chuck, my best to both of you.

I've just proposed a future library for HISSandaROAR of DOORs...
But I need help recording it; ideally I'd love 100 people to each record 10 doors,
so if you have a record kit & are interested have a read here:

Music of Sound


thanks!

Tim the seals are amazing. They're so expressive, and so useful when pitched around.

Really nice work. Very inspirational to me.

thanks!

keep them coming guys this is how effects libraries need to be done. Single man/woman operations done with passion and priced as a no brainer.

Hey Chuck,

the ground bloom flower stuff in the fireworks library is flat out awesome!

how did you approach controlling dynamic range with some of these? They really sound great.

I have one question out of curiosity: Why do you record @96k? I read that you use a neumann RSM wich doesn´t really have a response beyond 20k (actually it´s already at -10dB at 20k and falls off pretty steep from 10k at 10dB/Oktave. It acts like a steep low-pass @10k ).

Isn´t that a waste of space since the RSM doesn´t pick up things beyond 20k?

Thanks!

First off ALL of Chuck's Libraries ROCK! Kudos man for sharing with all of us at such great prices. I've bought every one of Tim's and Chuck's libraries to date and use them extensively.

96k: I've found that when your out in the field recording its usually best to capture at the highest possible resolution your recorder is capable of. Its going to offer the highest flexibility after the fact. You usually only get one chance to capture the perfect sound, or your on an expensive recording session (guns/cars/etc). So why not capture at the best you can regardless of the frequency response of your mics.

I also think that if you plan on pitch shifting, or running your recorded FX through your arsenal of sound design tools its best to start at the highest resolution to help retain/maintain your "money" frequencies (low end/high end detail) present in the original recording.

Certainly 96k..192k eat a ton of drive space however space is soo ridiculously cheap nowadays it only makes sense to capture at the best our devices can.

I'm sure Chuck has more to say about his specific philosophy.

-Chris
