NEW: The Foundation Sound Effects Library

Hello every­one.  I am excited to join the Pro Sound Effects sta­ble and I am look­ing for­ward to shar­ing some of my expe­ri­ences as I work on cap­tur­ing new sound effects for the next gen­er­a­tion of libraries. I have been a com­poser and sound designer for over ten years and most of that time has been spent work­ing for the video games indus­try. In that time I have had some fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ties to col­lect some really inter­est­ing sound mate­r­ial and this inspired me to go into full time sound effects library production.

I love record­ing and cre­at­ing sound effects mate­r­ial and each time I find some­thing new I feel like a kid in a candy store. Our recent hol­i­day in NSW pro­vided one of those amaz­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties when two sia­mang mon­keys decided to have an argu­ment. I was for­tu­nate enough to cap­ture ten min­utes of angry mon­key sounds. This is why I get out of bed in the morn­ings and the excite­ment I get from record­ing a Japan­ese folk fes­ti­val, or a bro­ken hire boat or the sound of snow falling from the tree­tops rein­forces why I do this almost every day.

I hope that I can share some of that excite­ment with you in the PSE blog and that the sounds I cap­ture can pro­vide the inspi­ra­tion to cre­ate great sound-scapes. I am cur­rently work­ing on some new sound mate­r­ial that I think is going to be a lot of fun for many of you and I will update every­one on those as things progress. I don’t leave the house with­out a record­ing device so I am sure there are going to be plenty of adven­tures and maybe even some sneak pre­views of things to come.

Curi­ous? You can down­load 25 free sound effects from The Foun­da­tion Sound Effects Library.

Enjoy the library!
