Bring your World War II-themed games and movies to the next level with this biggest-ever World War II firearms library. Recorded at an extraordinarily high quality with the most modern techniques, it includes weapons from all sides of the infamous conflict.
Containing 25 renowned World War II firearms, from the first assault rifle to pistols with designs still in use, this pack has the most important weapons of the Second World War period. With both shots and mechanical sounds, it is an absolute must for any sound design for movies and interactive media focused on mid-20th century combat.
These were the weapons that defined the battles they were in. High-quality sounds of this grade and caliber are an absolute necessity for sound design in a game, film, movie, or podcast that broaches the subject of World War II, and will work for anything to do about guns – crime, sports, war, and so on. We’ve included 10 different shots for each gun, and, depending on the weapon, we have also recorded single, burst and fully automatic firing. This allows for maximum versatility for fast workflows.
PRISTINE, NATURAL REVERB
The sounds were captured on a hill-top near a forest; the natural outdoor reverb providing ultra-crisp and full tails. With our array of modern mics – including shotguns to omnidirectional mics in AB, XY, ORTF configurations plus Ambisonics and ORTF 3D spatial audio setups – we were able to capture every sound in their full, rich intensity.
ULTRA-REALISTIC SHOTS AND FX
Not only were the firing sounds included, but also all the mechanical sounds as well. We recorded everything from reloading/changing magazines, pickups to cocking actions, and dryfire. We even managed to capture bipod sounds when the gun had one.
A MASSIVE COLLECTION
With 25 of the most well-known World War II firearms, like the MG42 and the M1 Garand, this library is presented in stunningly crisp detail and character. With the Designed pack we went even further in creating for you the perfect, ready-to-use sounds.
3 SETS OF SHOTS
Each shot was designed and processed with three styles to coax out different use-scenarios.
Mechanical: Close-up sounds a gun makes when firing; shots are light and subtle with short tails
Modern: Precise and powerful with long tails, perfect for the modern first-person-shooter game
Punch: Designed for an extra impact and robust character
Our Designed sounds are always crafted with true drag-and-drop use in mind. With the designed gun mechanics completing the sonic profile of the shot, you can rest assured these sounds can be added where you need them without any additional need for revising. Combined with the Construction Kit to add any extra character or effects, this is a truly powerful toolbox of weapons sounds to have.
