24 Days Of Xmas – Day 4: Free Xmas Sound Effects and SFX Effects

Benztown Imaging Blog - Tue, 12/04/2018 - 07:19
  What’s poppin? Since Christmas is just around the corner, we have something festive for our Blog-Comunity! After Max is gone, Jan and Chris took over our sound-effect zone. Together their manufactured some fresh christmas special effects. And guess what? They are now available as a free download! Get your hands on them!

Here is the behind the scenes of our christmas magic and how we did it:     We recorded all the stuff with 3 microphones: a stereo pair of Rode NT5 and a Rode NTG3B. We used a AB Stereo setup with the NT5’s and the NTG3B to get a more spacious sound.              During the post production, we brought into action the stereo signal of the NT5’s and mixed it to the mono signal of the NTG3B. Lastly we applied a EQ and a bit of compression, such as an limiter at the tip.                         We recorded a sleigh bell in different tempo and variations, simulated unwrapping a present with paper, mimic footsteps in the snow with cornstarch, recorded some cymbal rolls and captured a real fire!!     Have fun with them guys! Here is the link to all 10 of them:   FREE XMAS SFX   Don’t we all love early christmas gifts? Stay save and see you next time.
