SD09 Rock Creatures

Regular price $79.00 USD

DESCRIPTION:

  • In Rock Creatures, get a visceral collection of guttural and grating vocalizations from the volcanic rocks of the Davis Mountains. Scrape rhyolite with intense pressure and hear guttural screeches with vigorous, physical energy. Hear the thick weight of boulders growling and frenetic stutters of rocks performed to sound like animals. Hear textured squeaks of small stones sliding. Hear rocks rich in titanium clattering to create otherworldly harmonics perfect for creature sound design. 
  • This library offers you an extensive collection of rocks painstakingly performed to bring these inanimate objects to life and transform them into intensely vocal creatures.

      KEY FEATURES: 

      • Rocks performed to sound like creature vocalizations
      • Resonant scrapes with shifting harmonics
      • Small, mid-sized, and large rocks
      • Thick grating boulders sliding
      • Squeaking scrapes
      • Titanium rocks rattling and clacking
      • Scraping, grinding, and rasping stones
      • Types of rocks/minerals: rhyolite, quartz, and in unidentified rock I marked as "titanium rock" in the metadata due to its high rating on the Moh's Hardness Scale
      • Combine these rock vocalizations with the massive impacts in SD10 Falling Rock or the resonance of SD02 Ringing Rocks for infinite creative possibilities. 
      • The pitch shifted demo was made from excerpts of the normal demo at half speed. 
      • Please note: the "Pitch Shifted Demo" was made to demonstrate the potential of the sounds in this library. However, Rock Creatures does NOT include pitch shifted sounds, only mastered field recordings.
