Rabbit Ears Audio Releases “Jet Turbines” Sound Effects Library
September 19, 2012 by David Weiss
They are not afraid to take risks in the name of sound design at Rabbit Ears Audio (REA), the Brooklyn-based creator of royalty-free sound effects.
The latest evidence is their newest collection, “Jet Turbines”. REA founder Michael Raphael laughed – and recorded at high sample rates — in the face of danger to produce this awe-inspiring new collection, which is available now for $115.
Be sure to visit REA to listen to the ground-shaking samples (and watch the video below!), and let these sonic adventurers tell you about how they were made, in their own words:
“Raw power and thrust is what REA_011 Jet Turbines is all about. We sought out a series of hard-to-find and unique sounding turbines. We stood dangerously close to afterburners and jet wash so you wouldn’t have to.
The collection includes the L39 Albatros (Soviet-era Mig Trainer), home-built Jet Motorcycle, home-built Jet Utility Cart, and several radio-controlled model jet airplanes. Did I mention the Jet Utility Cart? The L39 was not air worthy, but its turbine was pushed at various levels of the thrust on the tarmac. The Jet Motorcycle, Jet Utility Cart, and radio-controlled planes were all pushed during stationary runs and fly bys.
This library is a diverse collection of thrusters ready for space travel, other-worldly bys, whines, and low-end raw power ready to be stretched into drones and other design elements.
