The Sound FX Trampoline, created for Blastwave FX, debuted at this year’s Audio Engineering Society convention in New York, NY. Jumping on the trampoline triggers sounds from Blastwave FX high definition sound effects libraries. The higher you jump, the lower the pitch, and if you jump over twenty-five times a delay kicks in.
This video shows a few brave jumpers. You can hear the sounds of a colobus monkey, male voice clip, baby, and a gong. And you can definitely see the smiles! For more information, email Laura at laura [at] blastwavefx [dot] com
Coinciding with our exhibit at AES 2009, we’re announced the winner of the Blastwave FX Sound Design Competition. Congratulations to Tobias Poppe! Check out his winning entry below, and much more to follow (top twenty, judges comments etc.)
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 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.
