On metadata and organization...
"All the metadata has been really well done, so it's really easy to find what we're looking for quickly."
"I really love these multichannel recordings — you've got the different mic angles to choose from, even if you just wanted to bring them out as stereo pairs to adjust in the mix, or if you're using multichannel tracks. I just love having the option."
On recording quality...
"This is the kind of stuff that I look for in libraries because it's so unique. It's gonna give instant inspiration when I'm in a scene looking for cool material.”
"They're just such clean recordings. They're really isolated, there's not a ton of noise floor. They're gonna fit really easily into a scene very naturally and help your environment instantly feel more alive and more natural."
On the depth of the library...
"There's a ton of exploring to be done with this library. It's a great opportunity to get your hands on a
fresh palette of sounds.”
Matt Yocum is a sound artist based out of Los Angeles.
