Geeking Out at AES 2009 (Audio Engineering Society Convention)

September 16th, 2009

In order to give the audio engineers, music programmers, high-end microphone designers and other AES exhibitors and attendees something to talk about, we are getting geeky at AES 2009. If you’ll be in NYC in mid-October, register for a free VIP exhibits pass and visit us at booth #833. We’ll be displaying our massive collection of high definition sound effects the traditional way – by pressing the space bar on a computer – but also with an interactive “instrument.” What is this instrument going to be..? Come to the booth to find out.

    NAB Highlights

    May 3rd, 2009

    NAB 2009 was a hit, so much so that we’re already excited for next year.  And fortunately, the convention center’s air conditioning made up for the desert heat.

    Feedback on our HD sound effects libraries was invaluable – the following features were received particularly well:

    • Fresh, New Sounds: All Blastwave FX libraries are new, native 24/96 and recorded within the last three years. This gives you the advantage of using the most contemporary, realistic, and technically clean sounds. Sounds of the world change with time, and so should sound effects.
    • Hard Drive | USB | DVD | Download: We deliver our libraries on multiple formats from larger libraries on Hard Drive (Blastdrive, SONOPEDIA, wavFX) to smaller, niche libraries on DVDs, USB drives and download.
    • Spanning A to Z and then some: The Blastwave FX Catalog spans Ambiences to Zippers with all the Lasers, Whooshes, and Stingers you can handle in between.
    • Blastwave FX Search Engine (Mac/PC): Crucial in today’s production workflow, our search engine allows you to efficiently Search, Browse, Audition and Drag N’ Drop into any application from Pro Tools to Avid and more.

    Ric Viers, head of Blastwave FX and author of the Sound Effects Bible, highlights his NAB 2009 experience in this video:
