About the Sound Effects Library

metal-contact-asfx-300x300Metal Contact sound library features the recordings of various metal surfaces tortured with different tools. From touching things with fingers, through hitting with metal bars and up to using blender or magnets to cause the materials to resonate. It’s 136 files with total length of 230 minuts. 4.06 GB of audio recorded in 96kHz and 24bits recorded with Sound Devices 702 and two Schaller Oyster contact microphones. While recording this library my goal was to cover different needs, not only for sound designers but also editors. Scrapes and squeaks were recorded with different intensity and speeds, just like the impacts. From soft and quiet, through medium up to loud and reverberant ones. In addition to the regular approach of just touching, hitting and scraping metal parts, I’ve decided to record few experimental sound effects. Listening to the tons of water flowing through the dam by sticking the microphones to the buildings wall? You got it. Messing with guitar strings using blender and magnets? It’s here. Throwing coins and different metal parts inside cast iron cooking dish? No problem! This sound library includes recordings of different lids, cast iron dishes, metal pots, baking forms and sheets, bullet catcher, different boxes, cooking oven, sinks, fan, pans, different jugs, electric guitar, buckets, washing machine, metal parts, old doors and walls, road sign, handrails, cages and more.
