This library includes over 1,900 metal impact sounds ranging in scale from massive silo hits, five ton concrete block metal impacts, a selection of four large scale metal skip bins, metal gates, truck decks, solid metal plates, an industrial digger scoop, to the total destruction of a filing cabinet, manipulation of a heavy steel 44 gallon drum, a stainless steel water tank, a copper bin and a WWII petrol tank.
Much of the library was recorded in quiet exterior locations using Sennheiser MKH8040 extended range mics in ORTF stereo plus an MKH8050 and an AKG D112 – please see the file list below. We have worked hard to capture & preserve the natural attack & decay of each prop. No EQ, compression or other processing has been applied, but we can't wait to hear what you will create with this library! While this library is incredibly versatile for practical sound effects, many of the recordings also lend themselves to creative manipulation and processing for creating stings & accents.
Apologies if you arrived here looking for a metal music library – this library doesn't involve any guitar shredding, double kick drums or satan worship… as far as we know.
