New Library, BUGS! from NAB 2010

April 30th, 2010

We had a new library to show off at NAB this year, BUGS!

At the conference, Ric took the time to give the scoop on how BUGS! came to be.

BUGS! is the newest library from Blastwave FX–recorded, edited, and mastered in 24-bit/96kHz with top quality microphones. No need to go camping when you’ve got this high-definition collection of creepy-crawly sounds.

Sound FX Trampoline at AES

October 15th, 2009


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

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:
