We learn early on to be careful with material things that are fragile, like glass cups, or ceramic figurines. As you continue to grow up you know that to make something last you have to take care of it, make sure it doesn’t get damaged. It is so deeply ingrained into us, that when we are told to purposefully break something it is close to being sacrilege. Once you get over that initial shock of it though, you almost gleefully get carried away.
Recording the sounds for our latest release (HD – Smash & Crash) had us hesitating at the start, but in no time at all it turned into a guilty pleasure! Our recording studio saw a lot of destruction in order for us to bring you these specialty sound effects.
When we were looking to create this collection, we decided on three main ingredients; glass, wood and metal. Then the fun began as we subjected each ingredient to dropping, bouncing, breaking, smashing, crashing, rattling and clanking to see what kind of sounds we could come up with. The clean-up afterwards was definitely a lot less fun, but we think it was well worth it!
