|Thompson Machine Gun||Presenting The Thompson Machine Gun HD Professional Sound Effects Library, a multi-channel collection of 100 Broadcast WAV tracks recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz. The gun was recorded on two separate occasions. There was a session of shooting and foley and one extra interior foley session. The gun was recorded close up, medium and distant. The multiple channels gives you a broad selection of perspectives to choose from. Sound Designers like to create their own combinations so the individual microphone takes are included. All the multi-channel wav files are time aligned and in mono and stereo. Also included are customized mixes created here in the studio with a generous amount of combinations.The interior mechanical sounds were recorded with two microphones (Sennheiser MHK-416 & MKH-8040) to give you different perspectives and tonal variations. Again the multi-channel foley wav files are time aligned. Both the original Auto-Ordinance Drum Magazine and Stick Magazine were recorded along with various handling and selector switches.COLT THOMPSON 1921/28 NAVY OVERSTAMP MACHINE GUN (FULL-AUTO) HISTORYThe Model 1928 was the first type widely used by military forces, with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps as major buyers through the 1930s. The original Model 1928s were Model 1921s with weight added to the actuator, which slowed down the cyclic rate of fire, a U.S. Navy requirement. The Navy Model 1928 has several names by collectors today they are; the ‘Colt Overstamp’, ‘The 1921 Overstamp’, ’28 Navy’, or just ’28N’. The “overstamp” term refers to the ‘1’ in ‘1921’ being stamped over with an ‘8’. The 1928 Thompson would be the last small arm adopted by the U.S. Army that used a year designation in the official nomenclature.This Thompson is part of the late David Maytag (Maytag Appliances) gun collection. Originally purchased from the Cupertino Police Department in 1973 and had been in the Maytag gun collection since. Nicknamed the “Tommy Gun”, the M1921 was famous throughout its career with police and criminals (during Prohibition) and in motion pictures. Has the original 50rd Auto-Ordinance Drum Magazine and one 20rd Stick Magazine.||The Recordist||100||0.3||√||Weapon||$50.00||96||24||Unknown||550||WAV||Soundminer v4|

I then carefully edited and mastered the source material for what turns out to be a total of three months in man hours. I hope you enjoy this sound library as much as I enjoyed recording it.

|Ultimate Ice||Ultimate Ice HD Professional Sound Effects Library contains a whopping 715 cracks, impacts, scrapes, rubs, tension and icicle debris sounds. Recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz and over 4 freaking cold North Idaho winters in the making this new professional sound library will give you the chills.
Ice has tons of character depending on how cold the environment is. It can sound brittle, crunchy, solid, wet and like glass. It has many uses in audio production for video games, film and television but is most useful for keeping your beer cold.
As a naturally occurring crystalline inorganic solid with an ordered structure, ice is considered a mineral. It possesses a regular crystalline structure based on the molecule of water, which consists of a single oxygen atom covalently bonded to two hydrogen atoms, or H-O-H. However, many of the physical properties of water and ice are controlled by the formation of hydrogen bonds between adjacent oxygen and hydrogen atoms. It is a weak bond, but is critical in controlling the structure of both water and ice.
Ice is one of the sound sources I’ve used the most in the video games I’ve worked on. Whether it was for magic spells, fantasy weapons, impacts, or ice caves, I never had enough ice source material. After spending years trying to design fresh, new ice-based sound effects using the same old library sounds (and man, sometimes it was not easy), I decided it was time to create my own personal collection.
I started recording ice soon after I moved to North Idaho in 1997. Living up here in the middle of nowhere gives me the ability to record lots of ice and snow. We have six very long months of winter so I am always at the ready to run outside very early in the morning to record the latest overnight ice formations (even in my bathrobe if I have to).

|Ultimate Ice 2||Presenting Ultimate Ice 2 HD Professional Sound Effects Library, the long awaited sequel to Ultimate Ice HD Pro. Recorded over a three month period on the pristine ponds and lakes in North Idaho. This collection was captured with crystal clear detail at 24-Bit 96kHz with the extended frequency range Sennheiser MKH-8040ST XY microphone setup. From the smallest breaks to huge dispersion cracks across lakes hundreds of acres in size, this collection is sure to come in handy on your next “winter” sound design project.All kinds and thicknesses of ice was recorded and at many different temperatures. It was kicked, cracked, hit with a sledgehammer, crushed into itself and smacked with heavy chunks of ice. Ice debris was dropped and tossed around at many locations for a unbeatable, multiple take set of crash effects. When all these styles of frozen water and air vapor are pitched around with your favorite audio mangling tool, you will be amazed at the broad spectrum of sounds that can be created with the ultra high frequency response of the microphones. Also included is a generous selection of heavy boots walking, running, stomping and sliding on thick ice.The extreme low frequency nature of some of these ice recordings are perfect for LFE tracks and as additional elements layered in with higher pitch cracks.Recorded above the ice with a Sennheiser MKH-8040ST microphone rig to capture the large ice temperature fluctuations like the MKH-8040ST can do very well… way down below 20Hz.||The Recordist||143||1.01||√||Ice, Snow||$75.00||96||24||Unknown||365||WAV||Soundminer v4|
