FX Revolver blasts off

17 January 2008

Blastwave FX has released a new HD sound effects library dubbed Revolver. Officially dubbed the world’s first 5.1 surround sound production elements library, Revolver is an all in one collection of 1000 Hi-Def 5.1 surround sound imaging elements, compositions, drones, and trailers created in the critically acclaimed libraries of Blastwave, Radio Meltdown, Drones, and Spoilers, all on 6 DVDs, writes Andy Stout.

Each sound was originally recorded at 24-bit 96k to ensure the highest quality for today’s production needs then delivered as 24-bit 48k broadcast .wav files. And, as with every Blastwave FX sound collection, each file comes as an additional mp3 for quick referencing.

Revolver is a Click N’ Drag library. That means that the entire collection can be clicked and dragged onto any hard drive and is conveniently catalogued with embedded metadata for easy search and retrieval in Pro Tools, Avid, SoundMiner, NetMix, iTunes and other popular sound library search engines. This collection is ready to use right out of the box, and the company claims it will lead to “No more long searches, ripping, editing, or settling for close enough.”

Revolver was created by producers and sound designers from the acclaimed Detroit Chop Shop, headed up by Ric Viers, one of the largest independent producers of sound effects in the world. It is available now through Blastwave FX’s website for an introductory price of $999.
