SEASONS OF EARTH
Our planet has a fascinating sonic spectrum, and every season, nature offers us an impressive and multi-faceted sound composition. We have recorded the most interesting and iconic ambiences the only way that truly reflects the sonic character of Earth as precisely as possible: Using the unparalleled Schoeps ORTF3D Surround Set. Harness these first-rate sounds to shape your projects in the most authentic way possible, from the ground up in 3D Surround.
As the sun retreats to lend vast landscapes their spectacular appearance, an equally astounding sonic world emerges.
Now available in immersive 3D Surround.
ENTER A NEW ERA OF SURROUND SOUND FX LIBRARIES
SUITABLE FOR ANY SURROUND APPLICATION, EVEN AND ESPECIALLY IMMERSIVE AUDIO LIKE AURO 3D, DOLBY ATMOS, 360° VIDEOS AND VR
Our sound effect series 3D SURROUND continues a new era of surround sound FX libraries with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. 3D Surround delivers better results where conventional surround techniques reach their limits. This occurs especially, although not exclusively, in VR, where events must sound 100% convincing depending on the rotation and tilt of the user’s head. With our new 3D SURROUND series, you are ideally equipped for not only VR, but any other application that requires high-definition and crystal-clear surround sound.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT 3D SURROUND?
3D Surround has two enormous advantages over conventional surround sound. On the one hand, individual sound sources can be located much better and more clearly with 3D Surround. On the other hand, 3D Surround also reflects height differences much better. This results in a more extensive and much clearer sound image in a quality that cannot be achieved with conventional surround sound.
THE 3RD DIMENSION – SUITED FOR VR & DOLBY ATMOS
3D Surround adds a height layer as a third dimension compared to regular surround. The sound not only reaches the listener’s ear from the side, but also from above. This results in a much better localisation of the sound source and a much more immersive listening experience which makes it the perfect surround type for VR applications and Dolby Atmos.
RECORDED WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
Our 3D Surround libraries are recorded with the highly-acclaimed SCHOEPS ORTF-3D setup, a cuboid 8ch level/time difference ambience setup. The main benefit is an additional height layer compared to regular surround recording setups. It consists of 8 supercardioid microphones.
The height layer offers a much wider range of spatial sound effects and a more realistic three-dimensional reproduction. Therefore, it provides a clearer representation of spatial depth, a more natural surround impression, improved envelopment, and an authentic feel.
NATURE’S PRISTINE AMBIENCE IN YOUR PROJECT
As snow covers the vast landscape and wildlife adapts to the harsh conditions, the character of the surroundings audibly changes.
Calm breezes, chilling tonal wind, the faint sound of trickling snowflakes, freezing rivers recorded at various distances, biting winter storms and subtle animal activity. This and more awaits you in the stunning collection of ambient sounds compiled in this library.
SET THE STAGE FOR EMOTIONS
Whether you are looking to ease your audience into a blissful escapist nature documentary or raise the suspense in a bitterly cold finale, Seasons of Earth – Winter lends itself beautifully to any envisioned scene.
While it supplements existing dialogue, music, narration or sound effects very well, it also sounds excellent on its own – for example when opening a scene before other audible cues set in.
BOOM Library sound FX come as WAV files, meaning you can import and work with them in any software that can handle this file type. Here are the most common audio and video editing software tools that work perfectly with our sound FX.
RICH METADATA EMBEDDED
To provide you with the fastest and easiest workflow possible, all files contain extensive metadata like file description & keywords to quickly find the sounds you’re looking for. Metadata can be read and processed by audio management tools. Some digital audio workstations feature an included search tool that can also read embedded metadata.
