HOLLYWOOD, November 12, 2009– The Hollywood Edge has released two sound effects collections designed to provide sound professionals with new tools to create that perfect moment or take audiences on a journey into the great unknown.
Musical Accents is a selection of accents, transitions, ambiances and hits suitable for a broad range of productions. The collection features more than 1000 effects produced exclusively for The Hollywood Edge by award-winning sound designer Kamen Atanasov, creator of Sound Designer Tool Kit 2 and The Edge Edition 3.
Musical Accents is a unique collection containing more than 40 real instruments. All instruments are real, recorded, edited, mixed and mastered. (No Synths) Symphonic, brass, violins, pianos, timpanist, harp, accordion, guitars, mouthorgan, harpsichord, xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, a variety of drums, cymbals and percussions, beat box, exotic instruments, cartoon effects.
This set overflows with 1077 musical accents, elements, logos and sound effects, all in 3 CD’s along with a .wav DVD all in 24bit Stereo 48kHz. With a variety of moods – dramatic, action, exotic, scary, horror, tension, funny, comedy – Musical Accent is a multi- purpose collection and must have for every creative sound project – from horror films to funny cartoons!
“For this collection, I made raw recordings of more than 40 instruments, including grand pianos and Chinese instruments,” says Atanasov. “I had a lot of fun
manipulating and bending sounds in order to produce unique and fresh effects.”
Cosmic Environments represents the latest work from Bob Hart, creator of The Hollywood Edge’s Alien Machine Shop collection. The new package draws on the dark side with 450 all-new effects steeped in creepiness, tension and foreboding. Hart created the collection by traipsing through junkyards and factories armed with a field recorder and a vivid imagination.
“This library is meant to fill a void for a certain kind of atmospherics that are a bit creepy and hard to put your finger on,” explains Hart. “I took sounds that were recorded in the field and put them through multiple effects and synths resulting in effects that truly have never been heard before.”
Both Musical Accents and Cosmic Environments are available now at www.hollywoodedge.com.
