Rabbit Ears Audio Steam Whisltes

Post by sepulchra » February 19th, 2015, 12:03 pm

Hey Folks,

We have a new collection over at Rabbit Ears Audio.

Although steam whistles emerged in the mid-19th century as a warning device, they quickly became the rail industry’s iconic sound. Many railways even cast their own whistles, branding the sound of their particular train line. REA_017 features a variety of whistle types from North America including 3-chime, 6-chime, and single note hooters (there is even a bonus whistle from China).



The whistles were recorded while the steam engine was stationary with no electrical system running. This means the whistle blows are completely isolated from any other train noise. REA_017 provides pure steam and the flexibility to place whistles wherever you need them.

The collection is a whopping 8GB and 527 files. Each take was recorded from multiple microphone perspectives at 24/192.

The library will be available at a 15% discount for the next 7 days. Go give them a toot: Rabbit Ears Audio » Steam Whistles

These do sound great. I frequently have to make do with some substandard library steam whistles, so I'll most likely be picking this up.
