Sick 3: Dark Places by Soundiron is a deep sound & music design sample collection with 175 long running, highly-detailed professional dark/suspense/horror environments, soundscapes, hellscapes and nightmare worlds, with over 4 GB of sample content. Soundiron's team literally traveled to the edge of a hurricane and wandered the halls of decrepit, vermin infested industrial, military and institutional ruins to capture authentic, production grade field ambiences that truly live and breathe.
Sick 3 also includes a collection of 335 live stereo convolution reverb impulse response files captured in a wide range of remote horror-friendly environments, including bunkers, prisons, waterfronts, graveyards, forests, chambers, warehouses, sewers and more. The impulse collection focuses on darker and more foreboding environments, from derelict prison hall to a claustrophobic earthen grave. Recorded at a variety of capture distances, angles and degrees of occlusion, they provide realistic coloration and spatialization when placing additional instruments, sound design and foley into a mix for music, film, television, video game or multimedia production. This array of stylized, yet acoustically accurate impulse responses are provided as standard stereo PCM waves that are compatible with any convolution effect, host, virtual instrument or utility that supports wav impulse import.
This library's sample content is designed to meet the needs and standards of professional sound designers, re-recording mixers, film-makers, video game designers and post-production specialists. However, it has also been programmed and tailored it to fit seamlessly into the creative workflow of composers and songwriters seeking mood-enhancing, textural and experimental source material.
