Field recordist Michael Raphael’s Rabbit Ears Audio Web shop has just released a new sound effects collection: Steam Whistles (524 sounds, 8 gigabytes, $115.00).
The high-resolution, 192 kHz sound library gathers steam toots, blasts, and whistles with beautiful, clean tails. The tracks are recorded with a variety of microphones (Schoeps MK4 & MK8, Sennheiser MKH40, MKH40, MD423, MKH60, Sanken CUB–01, and DPA 4060s) at varying perspectives.
Check out the SoundCloud preview:
Here’s a Vimeo video with sound library highlights:
The sound library is on sale for the next seven days for $99.00, a savings of $16.00.
Raphael’s sound fx libraries were some of the first collections released by an independent field recordist. Previously, he has recorded collections as diverse as a Hind Helicopter, Jet Turbines, and Rockets. He has also collaborated with other field recordists to release packages such as LA Underground with Charles Maynes, and Bridgett Tones with Rob Bridgett.
