|Animal Bells||REA_008 is a collection of sounds meant to be grazed on, but be careful you might alert others you are near! This library features 16 Animal Bells made out of a variety of materials. The materials include, brass, bronze, common metals, wood, animal horns, and even some gourds. So just imagine: ding, clank, ring, twack, rattle, clunk, click, and who doesn’t love gourds?||Rabbit Ears Audio||7.92||Bell, Horn||$70.00||96 & 192||24||–||–||–||–|
|Antique Engines||REA_009 is a collection of stationary antique engines (both steam and gas) that were used for DC power generation. At the turn of the century before electricity was widely available, these engines were used to provide energy to water plants, factories, farms, and just about anything that needed power. These contraptions are a gold mine of mechanical sounds: steam chuffs, exhaust puffs, whirrs, whines, and bangs.||Rabbit Ears Audio||9.63||Machinery||$85.00||96 & 192||24||–||–||–||–|
|Bells||Bronze, brass, chrome, gold, stainless steel, and steel are just some of the materials that forged this library. We spent a day at one of the few remaining bell foundries in the United States and we rang bells until our ears nearly fell off. We hit them with mallets, clappers, and shook them with our bare hands. We also spent time on an old barge and percussion rental facility for rare and unusual bells.||Rabbit Ears Audio||4.76||Bell, Horn||$70.00||96 & 192||24||–||–||–||–|

|Hind Helicopter||One Soviet-era helicopter, four recordists, and plenty of fuel brings you REA_010 Hind. The Mi–24 Hind is a Soviet gunship that was introduced in 1969 and saw action in Afghanistan and throughout the Cold War. I had the opportunity to record the Hind and assembled a team of recordists to get ‘er done.||Rabbit Ears Audio||6.69||Vehicle||$129.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
|Hydrophonic||Time to get wet and be sucked in by the rip current! Hydrophonic is a moist library that features sounds recorded from a variety of subaquatic perspectives. For a period of 3 months, I dragged around my hydrophones wherever I could find water. My hydrophones went with me to waterfalls, streams, lakes, rivers, oceans, swimming pools, scuba divers, and even the local bathtub.||Rabbit Ears Audio||1.45||Water||$50.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
|Jet Turbines||Raw power and thrust is what REA_011 Jet Turbines is all about. We sought out a series of hard-to-find and unique sounding turbines. We stood dangerously close to afterburners and jet wash so you wouldn’t have to. The collection includes the L39 Albatros (Soviet-era Mig Trainer), home-built Jet Motorcycle, home-built Jet Utility Cart, and several radio-controlled model jet airplanes.||Rabbit Ears Audio||13.04||Machinery||$115.00||192||24||–||–||–||–|

|Metal Machines||Shake, Rattle, and Rumble. Those are just a few of the sounds that heavy machinery makes when it is fired up and put into action. The age of the steam locomotive has long faded in the United States, but the tools used to maintain them, rebuild them, and fabricate new parts are very much alive.||Rabbit Ears Audio||4.07||Metal||$80.00||96 & 192||24||–||–||–||–|

|Rockets||Amateur rockets. When you first hear those words, an image of little Jimmy in the backyard launching a tiny rocket comes to mind. Forget little Jimmy and, instead, imagine adults building high-powered rockets in their free time and launching them in remote locations. The rockets come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and are remarkably sophisticated considering NASA is not involved in their production.||Rabbit Ears Audio||0.227||Fire||$70.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
|Rockets 2: Static Burns||Back in 2004, REA_001 Rockets began our obsession with dry propellant and rocket launches, and we quickly became addicted to the sounds of clicking igniters and pure propellant combustion.
With REA_016 Rockets 2: Static Burns we reprise the collection with a bit of a twist: we left out the rockets! Instead of soaring ballistics, we decided to just burn the motors. A frequent request of the REA_001 release was for sustained, steady state burns. This collection more than addresses that need.

|Small Motors||Small Motors. Clicking, whirring, buzzing, grinding, servo sounds and robots. This library is composed of a variety of motor sounds from everyday kitchen appliances and power tools, but it also includes a real robot, whom I found not far from where I live in Brooklyn.||Rabbit Ears Audio||1.27||Machinery||$50.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
|Steam Whistles||Although steam whistles emerged in the mid-19th century as a warning device, they quickly became the rail industry’s iconic sound. Many railways even cast their own whistles, branding the sound of their particular train line. REA_017 features a variety of whistle types from North America including 3-chime, 6-chime, and single note hooters (there is even a bonus whistle from China).||Rabbit Ears Audio||524||8||Bell, Horn||$115.00||192||24||–||–||WAV||–|
|Typewriters||On its face, REA_014 is a diverse collection of typewriters spanning over 80 years of mechanical innovation, from the turn of the century to the mid–1970s. The seven typewriters provide source material to cover most of your secretarial needs. In addition to the library’s obvious usage, there are endless mechanical possibilities. Recorded at 192kHz, each sound is ideally suited to exploit pitch shifting. Play these machines at half speed and feel the heft of real craftsmanship: the torque and thud of the hammer’s blow, the carriage return’s zipper-like windup.||Rabbit Ears Audio||3.85||Machinery||$70.00||192||24||–||–||–||–|
|Winter Atmospheres||This Library is all about cold! The temperatures of these files range from a low of −20°F up to a balmy 35°F. Our Rabbit Ears froze so your ears would not have to.||Rabbit Ears Audio||8.91||Ambience||$115.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
