Geothermal 3D Surround - Otherworldly Sonic Landscapes and Textures
Yellowstone National Park, this library transports the listener to someplace far away from Earth – although sounds represent the primal geological processes of our beautiful planet.
Whether you are designing for daunting underground environments or films somewhere else in our solar system, draw from the rich sonic details in this collection and fill your fictional realm with uniqueness and character – all in incredibly immersive 3D SURROUND!
Enter A New Era of Surround Sound FX Libraries
GEOTHERMAL is the third product of the sound effect series 3D SURROUND. It continues an era of surround sound FX libraries with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. 3D Surround delivers better results where conventional surround techniques reach their limits. This occurs especially, although not exclusively, in VR, where events must sound 100% convincing depending on the rotation and tilt of the user’s head. With our new 3D SURROUND series, you are ideally equipped for not only VR, but any other application that requires high-definition and crystal-clear surround sound.
What is so special about 3D Surround?
3D Surround has two enormous advantages over conventional surround sound. On the one hand, individual sound sources can be located much better and more clearly with 3D Surround. On the other hand, 3D Surround also reflects height differences much better. This results in a more extensive and much clearer sound image in a quality that cannot be achieved with conventional surround sound.
High-Precision Sound Location - Conventional surround sound often provides a somewhat diffuse image of the sound source, making it hard to precisely pinpoint the direction where the sound is coming from and where it is moving to. 3D Surround draws a crystal-clear picture of the source recording for a complete sound experience.
The 3rd Dimension - Suited for VR & Dolby Atmos - 3D Surround adds a height layer as a third dimension compared to regular surround. The sound not only reaches the listener’s ear from the side, but also from above. This results in a much better localisation of the sound source and a much more immersive listening experience which makes it the perfect surround type for VR applications and Dolby Atmos.
Recorded with the most advanced technology
The 3D Surround libraries are recorded with the highly-acclaimed SCHOEPS ORTF-3D setup, a cuboid 8ch level/time difference ambience setup. The main benefit is an additional height layer compared to regular surround recording setups. It consists of 8 supercardioid microphones.
The height layer offers a much wider range of spatial sound effects and a more realistic three-dimensional reproduction. Therefore, it provides a clearer representation of spatial depth, a more natural surround impression, improved envelopment, and an authentic feel.
Included sounds - keywords: Geothermal, Geyser, Volcanic Debris, Bubble, Gurgle, Sputtering, Steam, Vent, Boiling, Churning, Chugging, Splash, Rolling, Sputtering, Boil, Mud Pot, Hiss, Wave, Thump, Hum, Eruption, Rumble, Surge, Roar
Ideal Conditions – Excellent Quality
GEOTHERMAL was recorded at night in order to eliminate bird, tourism and transport noises. The result is a pristine, authentic toolkit with which to sketch out, layer and shape environments and products of your imagination (or project briefing).
Earthly, yet Alien
GEOTHERMAL grants a sonic glimpse at the massive, seething processes continuously happening deep inside Mother Earth. Hostile underground environments, hellish scenes or extraterrestrial landscapes come to mind when immersing yourself in the sound. This library is a true asset in the hands of the creative: Bring the unusual to life and embellish your designs with the almost uncanny details of the audio material available in GEOTHERMAL.
Including Stereo Version
In addition to the ORTF-3D files, the 3D SURROUND edition also contains all files in 2.0 stereo for your convenience to save time on unnecessary conversions. Instead, you can instantly use these great new sounds for all your projects that don’t require surround sound.
