I'm excited & proud to be working with Nadav Presser & Artlist.io helping to build their sound effects catalog. Artlist, based out of Israel, is one of the world's largest online supplier of music tracks that cater toward the video/film market. They are putting lots of energy & effort into building their sound effects library. Currently, I'm enjoying producing various voice overs and cartoon effects for Artlist. We'll be branching out into lots of different categories in the near future. Stay tuned folks! More to come.
I recently purchased several swords online to use as tools to produce various sword sound effects and ultimately the sound of several pirates having a sword fight. What great fun! With the help of a couple of friends we recorded the swords hitting together in the studio. We did several 30 sec takes for the sword sounds. I mixed several tracks of sword hits and scrapes and then added whoosh effects throughout by recording a 4' thin wooden dowel swishing through the air with stereo Neumann KM-84s and I sweetened those up with some effects using the UVI software "Whoosh". I then added the sound of boots moving on a wooden floor using actual shoe sounds in my studio along with the UVI "Walker" footstep Foley Designer. And then for the final layer I recorded several tracks of male fighting grunts, laughs and heavy breathing. In the end I came up with a Sword Fight Sound Effect Ambience just under a minute in length that works perfect for either a Pirate fighting effect or warrior/battle effect. My sword sounds are available for purchase on AudioJungle & Pond5. This particular sound will be available exclusively on AudioJungle in a couple of weeks.
