The Sounds of War Sound Effects refill
Have you ever wished that you could include these evocative sounds in your productions –
* A Hurricane fighter with its straining Rolls Royce Merlin engine taking off from a forward strip in the Battle of Britain
* the heavy fire of an armoured assault as Panzer Grenadiers, firing machine pistols and flame throwers in support of the Waffen-SS assaulting the forward positions
* Stukas screaming down on zig-zagging convoys while Royal Naval gunners throw up a constant wall of anti-aircraft fire
* Flying Fortresses thundering down their runways, desperately hauling their full bombloads into the air and heading for the industrial heartland of Hilter’s Germany
* boots on cobblestones as British Infantrymen fight through northern France
* the crack of rifle fire and the rattle of heavy machine guns as German defenders put up a desperate defence, before being overrun by Allied tanks in support of a common cause?
Since most wartime newsreels were shot without sound, these sound effects had to be tracked down and salvaged from a wide variety of archival sources across Europe. All of the sound clips were then digitally enhanced through cedar processing and/or mixed into the longer scenario ambiences by skilled engineers with state-of-the-art equipment.
