CANYONS NATURE SOUND FX – PERFECT FOR FASCINATING AMBIENCES This pristine collection of 135 carefully mastered recordings from the American West, made with state-of-the-art equipment, offers a complete kit to help you meet your most demanding needs, day or night, calm or windy conditions. Reverberant birdsong? Check. Haunting coyote chorus? Check. Soft murmur of evening insects? Canyons offers a treasure trove of new opportunities.
BEAUTIFUL ECHOES FOR ABSOLUTELY AUTHENTIC AMBIENCES Canyons have bright reflections and a deep resonant echo, making them a Holy Grail for nature sound libraries. The key to using Canyons to produce compelling sound designs is paying attention to the echoes as they vanish into a seemingly never ending space, allowing them to change and transform as they flow down a rock-walled corridor to ultimately disappear below the threshold of hearing.
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.
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, Hempton has now turned his attention towards saving the world’s few remaining natural amphitheaters.
COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE 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.
