Last weekend I wrote about the Free Firearm Sound Library. The intrepid field recordists of that project shared the first delivery of sound effects.
This weekend the final clips became available.
These new sound effects are processed versions of the gunshots, 56 clips in ~230 megabytes of sound. (Note that the altered sample rate is normal: the originals were 192 kHz, the processed ones are 96 kHz.) Download those free sound fx by clicking the “Prepared Effects” link. Refer to the previous article for instructions for how to download the library.
Like last week, I added metadata to those tracks. There are two versions of the import file:
- Soundminer Metadata Import File, Processed – Airborne Sound Version.
- Soundminer Metadata Import File, Processed – Original Version.
The “original version” keeps the team’s names, and also adds category, subcategory, manufacturer, notes, and so on. The “Airborne Sound” version adds the same metadata, and also renames the description field so it sorts by gun type. In addition, I snuck in the word “Processed” after the word “Gunshot” so you can differentiate it from the original recording. Details about the differences between the files are in the earlier article.
Read more about how to embed Soundminer metadata and rename the files in the prior post.
