Hey guys! I'm looking for a SFX library containing a very particular genre of sound effects, and I'm hoping someone on this board might know where I can find them.
The sound effects I'm looking for are the ones you hear most often in movie trailers. They are the deep meaningful thuds you hear when movie titles comes up on the screen... the airy whooshes and flybys that punctuate cuts from shot to shot... the surging impacts that accompany shocking or violent moments... those are the sort of things I'm looking for. The sound is very "Hollywood" and quite distinctive -- no generic thud or whoosh will evoke the same feeling.
For an example, here's a link to a Quicktime file of a trailer -- it happens to be for The Da Vinci Code videogame. The "Hollywood" SFX I'm describing begin in this trailer about halfway through, when the text appears on screen and the voiceover begins. Example of "Hollywood" SFX
So far I have had no luck in finding a SFX library with these types of sounds. Does anyone know where I can find them? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I think Stylus RMX has some sound effects in its library that might be what you're looking for. Also, combining progressive synth patches like those found in Atmosphere with certain percussion can give you desired effects.
Thanks so much! I just went ahead and bought the PrecisionSounds Stingers collection, which sounds quite excellent! It is a relatively small collection, but the sounds are choice. I'll probably still keep looking for more, and if I hear anything else that knocks my socks off I'll report back. :-)
I think you can do easely yourself:
In wavelab for example:
- one track of pink noise abour 400ms with fade in and fade out
- another with a wip noise pan from left to right
- Another withthe same wip wip noise pitch one octave down pan from left to right
- A deep pad sound
- A final chord of a symphony without attack mix not too loud
- And some reverb
