Expanding on the popular King Collection: Vol. 1 general library, King Collection: Vol. 2 brings thousands more vivid, inspiring sounds from Academy Award®-winning sound artist Richard King (Dunkirk, Inception, The Dark Knight) to your collection. Curated in collaboration with King and available exclusively from Pro Sound Effects, this library is perfect for both new sound designers shopping for their first general library, and seasoned pros who want to expand their collection with a splash of sonic inspiration. Craft your story with the same rare and big-budget sound effects used by award-winning professionals – expertly captured by top recordists with Hollywood resources.
This wide-ranging library includes a complete palette of essential sounds – from Foley, footsteps, and props to animals, birds, and insects – but what really stands out is the large selection of immersive ambiences and backgrounds. You’ll find vivid soundscapes from cities across the world as well as specific ambience “flavors” like industrial, nautical, technical, and exotic. Bring your environments to life with walla in English and Spanish, dozens of rain recordings, and other natural sounds including water, snow, sand, dirt and rocks.
Just like Vol. 1, Vol. 2 includes plenty of adventurous sonic building blocks to use in your sound design. Experiment with the abstract textures of dry ice and liquid nitrogen, materials like glass and metal, and even a large selection of bells. Create dynamic movement with a range of whooshes, swishes and passbys, or build detailed mechanical sounds with a range of old and new machinery, from a massive oil rig to a broken lawnmower.
Each sound file is embedded with rich, UCS-standardized metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
In this exclusive interview, Richard King shares stories behind capturing some of the unique and inspiring recordings featured in King Collection: Vol. 2.
