Sound Ex Machina has released Destruction Zone, a sample library featuring audio material centered around debris and destruction sound effects.
Sound Ex Machina said:
We spent great lengths of time recording on-site, in metal scrap yards and quarry mines, construction sites, and a tank graveyard and they had fun popping balloons, dropping firecrackers into canyons, and sending barrels rolling downhill.
In the studio, they recorded a wide range of materials, covering everything from dust and gravel drops to glass breaks and porcelain smashes and they even recreated volcanic rockslides using authentic rock pieces from Etna volcano (Italy).
The highlights include high car drops using cranes and clarks, car window breaks using sledgehammers, the reverberated pops of balloons and firecrackers in canyons, sounds of an old corroded metal barrel being thrown downhill and "meticulously vandalized" in order to capture larger than life rolling textures, metal impact, and loud squeaks.
In addition to those raw material-based sounds, the library includes a number of designed sounds of low-frequency impacts, rumble drones, and different types of ground movements and disaster scenarios, such as rockfalls, mud and lava flows, landslides, earthquakes, avalanches, building collapses, car crashes, and explosions – all you need to design the Second Coming and beyond...
Destruction Zone offers opportunities for:
- Creating your own mixture of debris sounds.
- Using the pre-designed mixes unaltered to create the ambiance of weather phenomena, natural disasters, or structural failures and collapses.
What's in the Pack:
- Material-based debris sounds of metal, glass, ceramic, gravel, dust, dirt, porcelain, plastic, cardboard, stone, boulder, marble, and volcanic rocks.
- Sweeteners: Blasts, Low-frequency Impacts, Low Rumbles.
- Pre-designed debris and natural disaster scenarios like building demolition/collapses, earthquakes, explosions with various types of debris falls, avalanches, and more.
