June 09, 2016 8:33pm

This library serves you all the roaring, growling, slobbering, squealing, chirping, grunting, choking and gasping you´d ever need to create fascinating and rich sounding creature and monster sound effects or to turn any of your sound design to the dark side. Recorded with up to 100kHz frequency range due to the SANKEN CO-100k microphone, the sounds bear maximum twist and bending possibilities. Simply pitch and zoom into the sound and discover all the feral, brute and ferocious bits waiting to be discovered.

For this library we unleashed the beast in us to come up with the most terrifying and convincing creature voice effect library available.

Besides torturing and strangling our own vocal cords we brought in a professional death metal singer, friends and even family support. But for the main part of this creature voice effect library we worked together with Olof Johnsson. Olof is a professional voice artist and he provided creature sounds for Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies”. He is able to perform an amazing range of realistic creature sounds from tiny chirping critters to gigantic monsters. We were simply mesmerized by his performance and came to the conclusion Olof must have some kind of magic, organic vocal shift and transformation effect implemented into his vocal chords.

All performances were captured with microphones that feature an extended frequency range. Besides the Sennheiser 8000 series we equipped ourselves with the Sanken CO 100k microphone especially for this library project. Recording and mastering the creature performances with the Sanken CO 100k was a revelation, as it captures a pristine and clean frequency spectrum up to 100 kHz! When recorded in 192khz it is a pure joy to zoom endlessly into the sound. You can choose to make it as big as a Godzilla eating monster, or pitching it up until the monster becomes a tiny critter eating out of your hands.
