Nature Sounds from Hawaii

Last month we returned from our 6 week long journey through the Hawaiian islands, as well as vacationing we were recording sounds, taking video and of course swimming and boogie boarding.

I am back in the studio now and am starting to edit the collection of nature sounds we recorded while we wandering around in Maui, Kauai, Hawaii (the big island) and Ohau. The recordings are turning out surprisingly well I think.
These will be available on www.sound-effect.com and I’ll probably make a few more relaxation CDs with some of these sounds…

Download 200 Free iPhone Ringtones (no strings attached)

rtf3

We created these ringtones specifically for our iPhones so that we could have something other than the stock ringtones or the latest iTunes hip hop track blaring out of our iPhones when someone calls us.

To be honest we tried to figure out how to sell these ringtones to iPhone users but it is just too much of a hassle and we’re busy with lots of other stuff so we thought we’d give them away.
No strings attached.
A collection of 200 unique, different, hip and cool iPhone ringtones for you to drop right into the ringtone area of your iTunes program and then synch up your iPhone to load them in.
Once your iPhone is synched up go to settings and choose a new ringtone.
There’s something for everybody here to check it out.

Free Sound Effect: Call to Prayer

We recently visited Fes, Morocco for a week or so. We stayed in a beautiful hotel just on the edge of the Medina on a hill. It was a perfect spot to record the Call to Prayer that happens 5 times a day beginning at 5AM.
For those that might not be familiar with the Call to Prayer it is one of the strangest things you’ve ever heard, especially in the Medina as there are hundreds of mosques and minarets, all equipped with distorted loudspeakers and cheap microphones. The elder of the mosque starts wailing into this old fashioned PA system, then times that by 200 with each mosque trying to outdo the next in volume. It is eerie sounding.
It goes on for a while and is basically just a reminder to get to the mosque to do your prayer ritual.

Here is one of our recordings of the Call to Prayer:

Free Sound Effects: Cannon Battle

One of my latest uploads to www.FreeSoundEffects.com is called Cannon Battle.
It is a recording of the revolutionary re-enactment group here in Gracia (Barcelona, Spain).
All of the actors have a gun called a Blunderbuss. The guns are enormous and enormously loud and the revolutionary soldiers roam through our streets with them firing at will.
It is an awesome sound to wake up to.
So, I woke up and took my NAGRA out to record the Blunderbuss Battle.
When I got back to the studio to edit the sounds I tried pitching it down without changing the length and it accidentally turned into a Canon Battle.

Right-click (control-click on a Mac) and choose save as:
cannon_battle.mp3

I’m making this available royalty free to my blog readers and especially to Machinima producers as I have been talking to some of them recently and they seem to be having a hard time finding high quality music and sound effects for their productions (for free since most of them are broke).
I will posting more free stuff every week.
