Likely (and this may not be the answer you want to hear) you'll have to roll up your sleeves and build it. It's the hallmark of good BGz actually, building from the ground up. Finding some thick and dense air tones which create the right mood, a nice rumble, some HVAC tones and fluorescent buzzing, maybe OS alley drips if it's a wet scene, some OS tire ...

Here's my process for creating loopable sound files: Select a reasonable amount of audio from the tail end of the file ("reasonable" is variable and entirely dependent on the content of what you're working with), cut it off and paste it onto the front of the file. You'll need to make a crossfade from the tail end of the region you just cut onto the head of ...

I'd prefer to have it just chopped into sections 4-5 minutes long and have them labeled a,b,c,d,e etc. It makes it easy to import a short section when you only need 30 seconds of ambience but then you can piece them together if you need long sections.

I'm certain it's a scam, and advise running the other direction immediately: The website name alone is very suspect "blog" posts on his site about his gear and DSLR shooting, are just a series of copy-pasted technical data with no opinionated and articulated details (e.g. not "taking the talk") Zach King has no IMDb listing (especially so with how much ...

I had the same problem a few years ago, so I made Excel table for it manually from Juicer searcher, you can download it here - hope it'll help: http://liquidblasted.net/other/juicy_sound_tracklist_4.zip UPD: Here is a link to all tracklists for Digital Juice I, II, III and IV volumes: http://liquidblasted.net/other/digital_juice_tracklists.zip

I made I have a few, but one that gets used pretty frequently at the moment is a recording of a 12" speaker being fed a 5Hz square wave with a 100 watt amplifier. The mechanics of the speaker cone flapping all over the place and the higher sounds that start to creep in over time give me a great "breakup" layer to lots of different things I have to build. I ...

If you struggle to find a suitable library, you can create your own; if you can, try to record the footsteps of a person walking on the film location. Be aware though: it requires some gear (at worst a half-decent smartphone, at best a solid mic and a decent preamp and recorder), a decent sound technician and a decent sound engineer. I won't go into details ...

I'm not familiar with the applications you mention, but the standard way to add metadata is to add a BWF header and keep the .WAV file extension. Applications that understand BWF will use the header; those that don't will ignore it. There's no reason you couldn't add a JUNK header or any other defined section or perhaps link it to a separate database by ...

Have you tried putting a little space between you and the door and aiming your mics more towards the middle of the door rather than the latch?

It might be "legit", but it's pretty obviously not (copyright-)free for others than some sort of non-profit hobbyists. The net is full of sites with "Free SFX" and this site might be a collection of those, aimed at some hobbyist movie makers. The licenses for these "Free SFX" are generally for non-profit use only and the maintainer usually does not take any ...

I'd prefer option a), because I often end up with an ambience recording, that stops exactly where I want it to continue. It is a little bit more work, but in the end there is added value if you can decide by yourself where those representative sections are. Another option would be to have markers in the recording that point out the representative sections ...

It´s flexible : if you need a gunshot from 1m away, you got it, and 200 m away you got it too ... Very useful for battle scenes for exemple : i quickly edit all the mics In parallel, and then mute and balance them to Sound close or distant. So yes it comes up With a very large session In your DAW ;-)

Just to add to Jay's answer, an alternative method for getting the looped tail to sound right is to take your audio loop and create two copies and place one after the other. Bounce out the two copy version and reimport. The edit by cutting off the first version of the loop and deleting, just leaving you with the second version which will include the tail ...

A short list: All keyboards are mechanical. It's weird hearing a MacBook making the sound of a Model M. "Silenced" guns. I get the feeling someone once just read the name "silencer" and assumed the rest. A silencer doesn't render a gunshot to a whilstly "theew". Anything with a timer also beeps every second. Doesn't matter if you've been shot in the lung/...
