(April 28, 2011) Launched at the recent NAB Show, the General HD Collection comprises over 25,000 new recordings, recorded in high definition 24 bit/96 KHz resolution.
A massive array of pristine recorded sound effects are available: including animals and birds, contemporary and vintage airplanes, cars, trucks, boats and weapons – to name a few.
Brian Nimens, President and CEO of Sound Ideas comments:
“The General HD builds on our well respected range of libraries.
We have taken extraordinary care to record rare species of animals – as well as authentic vehicles and equipment – for example an original World War II air raid siren.
We feel this new collection will be a huge asset to film makers and post production editors worldwide.”
The General HD is available on a professional grade external hard drive with multiple USB and Firewire interfaces – formatted for either MAC or PC.
The 25,000 plus sound effects (comprising over 160 hours of audio) are available in a variety of formats:
24 bit/96KHz broadcast wav files, as well as 16 bit /44.1, 16 bit/48 and 24bit /48 - all embedded with fully cross referenced metadata for detailed and accurate asset management searches.
The General HD collection retails for $3,995.
