Experience the creative benefits of software-controlled sound effects

BROOKLYN, NY –  Pro Sound Effects®, the Next Level sound effects library, has released a FREE version of its newest library - NYC Ambisonics, a new sound effects library that comes with software from TSL Products that allows users to point “virtual microphones” in any direction and with a variety of polar patterns for greater control and creativity.

“Software-based sound effects is a new direction that we feel is best experienced first-hand,” says David Forshee, Pro Sound Effects Library Specialist and Producer of NYC Ambisonics. “This sampler version allows sound designers, editors, and mixers to try it and see just how creative it can be.”

NYC Ambisonics was produced and recorded at 24-bit/96kHz using a 4-capsule SoundField microphone to capture the ambiences from all angles. The Ambisonics format allows the user to manipulate virtual microphones in real time to create virtually endless perspectives within a scene. The Ambisonics recordings can be decoded to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond.
