When you carry the word „BOOM“ in your company name, your first dedicated explosion sound effects library should be a decent one. For the recordings, Boom Library teamed up with the sound department of EA DICE (Battlefield, Star Wars Battlefront) and created the biggest explosion sound FX library ever. DICE uses the recordings heavily to impressively blow up the world in their AAA title Battlefield V and now you can get the recordings and their ready-to-use designed sounds in stereo and 5.1 surround for your very own projects.
Why Urban Explosions? Most explosions in movies, games or trailers don’t happen out on a plain field, they happen in urban environments with buildings around them that shape the character of the explosion sound in a very specific way. The special thing about this urban explosions sound FX library is that it has been recorded in a real urban environment, so you get super-realistic reverbs and tails instead of artificially processed post-production reverbs or tails that don’t sound urban at all. For the sake of completeness, Boom Library also recorded a non-urban explosion on a plain field, so you’re covered here as well.
Boom Library had a lot of microphones with them and they placed them in all possible positions around the explosion spot. They have very close mics, close mics, medium distance mics, distant mics, mics in front of buildings, mics behind buildings, mics inside of buildings. Each explosion in the Urban Explosions Construction Kit comes with a minimum of 24 channels, including a 4 channel ambisonic file, so you can simply drag all channels to your DAW and easily mix the sound exactly as you want.
You’re looking for a more supernatural sound or your mix misses a bit of impact, smack, punch, tail, cackling, rumbling or character? No problem, the Construction Kit has a lot of great high-quality sweeteners that will easily enrich your mix in the desired way.
