We're very excited about meeting the milestone of having 10,000+ exclusive sounds now available on AudioJungle! Whoop! Whoop! This has been a goal for a few years and it feels great to finally achieve it. Each week we continue to add new sounds to our library and now we have a new goal of reaching 15,000 sounds! As our library grows, so do sales and we're excited about 2023. We look forward to acquiring new customers who use our productions and increasing our download numbers.
Below is our 10,000th sound. An acoustic guitar/piano driven musical intro. check it out!
My old college roommate Richard Hall and I took another camping trip to Little Pee Dee State Park Campgrounds near Dillon, SC this past weekend. This time we stayed in a nice, heated little cabin by the lake. Though it was a chilly weekend, we enjoyed ourselves with hiking and capturing various sounds including water splash sounds. Using my handy 10' boom pole along with my Zoom F3 recorder and Audio Technica BP-4025 microphone we were able to get several really good splash effects. Richard recently started selling sounds online under the name Sound Monkey. It's nice to have a good buddy to share the love of recording with. We've been best buddies since 1979 and have shared a lot of life experiences together and have similar interests. Our next trip will be up at Lake Lure, NC in April.
Take a listen below to a couple of the water splash sound effects we captured. These sounds are available for purchase on AudioJungle.
What an amazing year 2022 has been and I could not be happier with the growth of our library and the number of sales we've had in the past 12 months. We've added over 3500 sounds to our library this year which is probably a record for us. It has been a blast producing these sounds and I'm already looking forward to 2023 and the new sounds/music we'll add. Our sales are better than ever and 2023 looks extremely promising with potential sales records.
Thank you so much for supporting Apple Hill Studios this year and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2023!!!
God bless you.

I have been busy producing lots of different sound effects and music tracks in the studio in the last couple of weeks. I've concentrated on adding more Christmas related sounds and music including more Santa Voice Sounds. I've also enjoyed producing short musical interludes and transitions for children's projects such as cartoons and animation projects. In fact I added five of those today alone.
These tend to be upbeat, happy, snappy little tunes that fit perfectly for popular children's Youtube videos such as "Like Nastya", "Diana & Roma" or "Vlad & Niki". These are some of the most watched videos and channels on Youtube and I'm constantly hearing my sounds and music through each of them.
Take a listen to one of my musical interludes below. It's available for purchase on AudioJungle.
I've enjoyed producing several new musical Winner/Victory fanfares. These are intended for use in the gaming industry but they can be used for many different projects. Using Logic Pro X as my DAW I use Spitfire Audio Orchestral plug ins (BBC) along with EastWest plugins and Vienna Instruments plugins to produce my orchestral sounds.
Take a listen to one of my new Fanfares below. It will be available for purchase on AudioJungle within the next few days.
Tis the season and I have been busy creating new Christmas sound effects and music tracks. My focus has been on producing some new Santa voice sounds and soft, intimate musical transitions. My Santa voice has been featured on the Cartoon Network and I love playing the part. Out of over 9000 sounds on AudioJungle, my Santa voice is my top seller. Each year I try to add several new Santa sounds.
I also enjoy producing Christmas music tracks and this past week I added several new Christmas musical transitions to my library.
Take a listen below to one of them. "Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas".
My Joby Gorillapod 3k is a nice addition to my recording gear. It's so versatile and handy. This morning I used it to record some timer ticks and timer dings from a toaster oven. I have a triad-orbit quick change coupler attached making it so easy to attach a microphone to it. Using this configuration I was able to easily capture the sound of the oven. I used my Audio Technica BP-4025 mic and Zoom F3 recorder to capture the sounds.
Take a listen to a sample below. This sound will be available on AudioJungle within the next few days.
This past weekend I was able to spend some time with my baby sister Kelly Nash and she was kind enough to record some female voice overs for me. Like her brother, she has a bit of funny ham in her so getting the voice overs came naturally. I used my Neumann U47 FET to record with. Since my specialty is cartoon sounds Kelly gave me several really nice comical cartoon character sounds. We had a lot of fun together and it was nice to reminisce about the early years when I was recording as a teenager onto reel to reel recorders. The equipment was lousy but I sure enjoyed myself! I remember recording sounds around the house like door bell rings, telephone rings (rotary type) and door knocks. It sure is nice to record now without tape hiss!
Take a listen to a few of Kelly's Voice Overs below. Thanks again Kelly! Love you. Kelly's Voice Overs are available for purchase on AudioJungle .
What a beautiful fall day to get out and enjoy the wind and the sound of crashing ocean waves. I recently purchased a Zoom F6 portable recorder with 32bit float capabilities and wanted to try it out along with my Audio Technica BP-4025 microphone. Using my trusty K-Tek boom I was able to capture some nice sounds including the waves hitting up against rocks out at Fort Fisher, NC. I did manage to get both feet wet and almost tripped on the rocks but it all worked out! Fort Fisher is one of my most favorite place to visit for photography and enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery. Fort Fisher played a pretty prominent role in the Civil War and has some rich history. It's right outside of Wilmington, NC where I live - about a 15 minute drive for me.
Today was especially windy which made recording a little more challenging but thanks to some post EQ I was able to get the sounds I was after.
Take a listen below. This sound will be available on AudioJungle within the next few days.
