Pro Sound Effects Releases Bass Machine Library

First release from new Sonomar Collection inspires with abstract sound design elements

Pro Sound Effects®, the next level sound effects library company, has released Bass Machine – a collection of high-resolution sound design elements featuring over 7 hours of expressive drones, metallic resonances, and cinematic punches performed and sculpted using a unique, custom-built instrument.

Bass Machine is the first of many upcoming exclusive sound libraries in the Sonomar Collection to be released by Pro Sound Effects in 2019. The new series features sound libraries created by sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and his team at Sonomar Inc. – a Montréal-based audio post-production studio for film and television.

With 720 inspiring sound effects in total, Bass Machine demonstrates Sonomar’s sonic curiosity and commitment to quality. The library features 70 raw recordings performed on an experimental contraption with intense manipulation of objects on a bass guitar string and captured at 192kHz using contact mics and guitar pickups. Those recordings were then used by to Sonomar team to create an additional 650 designed sound effects – sculpted, pitched, and processed at 96kHz to instantly add eerie tension and harmonic depth to your projects.

“When we created Bass Machine, we wanted to make a sound library that would be different – that had not been done before,” says Martin Pinsonnault. “The sounds we came up with are very organic, moody, and full of potential. We’re excited to hear how sound artists will use them to create in their own projects and designs.”
