BACKGROUND

The idea behind this project was to gather a wide assortment of objects like saws, scissors and chalks, and to record their acoustic interaction with surfaces such as wood, glass, metal, concrete and gravel. We even came to vandalize a few musical instruments (snare drums, oriental percussions, cymbals and more) with hammers and knives in order to capture weird noises and unique musical qualities.

SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS

High-performance sound recording room

All recording sessions have been carried out in an acoustically treated room. We mostly recorded from a close perspective to provide you dry and solid material to apply your own amount of reverb or any other effect in post production or sound design project.

Creative Freedom

The sounds have been recorded with mono compatible configurations and contact mics, with enough variations of the same sound, in order to give you all the freedom and possibilities that you would need to work in a big production.

Well grounded folder structure, ease of use

The library is organized in frequencies of wood, glass, metal, plastic, concrete, cardboard and more.

Review of Scratches by 344 AUDIO

344 Audio has published an interesting review of SCRATCHES library. Here is what they think about it

The opportunities here are massive for those of you who like to play with source material. Many of the recordings have a definite ‘musical’ quality, that lends itself well to abstract audio elements and creature vocal shrieks. For those who just need some interaction sounds, Scratches will be a great accent to doors, switches, vehicle foley, machinery and even gore sounds. 344 Audio
