Why Blastwave FX Libraries?
A lot of sound designers ask us what the difference is between SONOPEDIA and other general sound effects libraries. Here are some highlights:
- Sounds change with Time: Our sound effects were recorded within the past four years, and new sounds are being created constantly. Older libraries from other publishers won’t have sounds necessary for contemporary realism and maximum impact – times change and so do the sounds! For instance, older libraries won’t have the foley sounds from typing on a macbook pro simply because the computer didn’t exist back then!
- Your library grows as we grow: If you purchase a Comprehensive Lifetime Sound Design Solution, you will receive quarterly updates as long as Blastwave FX exsits. It’s not just a one-time purchase but a ‘sound’ investment. (Yeah, yeah, bad pun. Couldn’t help it.)
- Times change, technology changes too: Other libraries were recorded onto magnetic tape, then transferred to digital formats. Our sounds were all recorded and mastered in high definition, 24 bit 96 kHz. Pristine! Clean! Crisp! Love those high frequencies and the larger dynamic range…
- Fresh sounds, cutting edge results: Many sound libraries from other publishers have great quality sounds, but those sounds are overused and often recognized. If your company boasts cutting edge and unique styles, using a ‘dog bark’ you’ve heard in hundreds of other programs simply won’t do. Blastwave FX libraries are a remedy to over-used sound effects.
