Music toys: QUICKSHOT STUDIO 4 (1988)

October 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a nice new toy demo from Analog Audio, details below:

Are you tired of cold, digital sounding recordings? The fully analogue QuickShot Studio 4 allows you to bring back the warmth of analogue in your recordings. The Studio 4 contains a great mixing console, a tape recorder, a microphone and very useful effects for the daily studio work…

QuickShot has also produced other high quality studio equipment like the “Sound Machine”. This is a similar machine, just instead of the effects it contains a synthesizer ;-).

It came with shoulder straps, microphone and headphones.

As a kid I always wanted it, but nobody wanted to buy it for me… my parents had no clue how important analog recording to me was :-)

The sound of the new sci-fi movie – Prometheus

June 12, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Nice talks with the sound team of Director Ridley Scott’s latest science fiction film “Prometheus” including Supervising Sound Editors Mark Stoeckinger and Victor Ennis, Sound Re-recording Mixers Ron Bartlett and Doug Hemphill, Sound Designers Ann Scibelli and Alan Rankin, and Sound Effects Researcher Charlie Campagna.

Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

TONSTURM 07 | The Sound Of Water

June 7, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

New library released by TONSTURM, The Sound of Water.

With this soundpack you get a vast variety of deep, splashing, bubbling and bursting water sound effects recorded during extensive field recording sessions above and under the surface of water. The underwater sound effects of this library were captured with the mind blowing, high quality underwater stereo recording rig from Sonar Surround.

With TONSTURM 07 | The Sound Of Water you get 140 Soundfiles in Stereo, 24 Bit, 192 kHz. Over 4 GB of Data (@ 192 kHz) plus extra pitched down versions of the high resolution underwater recordings for convenience (additional 2,47 GB).

TONSTURM 07 is available for $99 (192kHz) or $84 (96kHz)

Hear water like you´ve never heard before!
The recordings for this soundpack took place at three different locations: Two beautiful lakes and one outdoor swimming pool. We recorded above and under the surface of water and used all kind of props to perform and capture characterful, deeply bubbling and bursting water sound effects.

For the underwater recordings we rented the high quality, mind blowing underwater stereo recording rig from Sonar Surround. These microphones are able to capture a huge frequency range between “5Hz to 85 kHz”! and their “enormous sensitivity and the resulting signal to noise ratio offer a usable dynamic range of more than 100dB. Thus, even the smallest grain of sand movement can be recorded without disturbing noise floor.“
