I found Web shop Sonocaine via a coincidental message from my Twitter feed. The German store has been around since the middle of last year, and has released two sound fx collections. They’ve been added to the search engine, and I’ll introduce them today.
Sonocaine is the work of Sebastian Morsch. He describes the releases as “Tools for Sonic Storytelling.”
His first release is The Rustle (58 sounds, 2.760 gigabytes, $59.00), a focused bundle of leaves, foliage, trees, and branches. The clips can be used as accents, or to convey foliage moving in the wind. Morsch wanted to focus on “purposeful movement,” and evade the sound of hand-held performances. So, he captured a mix of natural sounds with Foley recordings. You can hear in them in the SoundCloud preview
Visit the The Rustle Web shop page.
Here is a Vimeo video that highlights the collection:
Sonocaine’s most recent release is Quad City Berlin (34 sounds, 26.700 gigabytes, $139.00). It captures rooftop, public squares, freeways, roads, rooms, parks, and other ambiences using a quad (4 x omni) array as well as a M/S arrangement.
The 1 hour and 48 minutes of 96 kHz/24-bit recordings arrive with Soundminer metadata. Listen to them here:
