The Sounddogs Military Sounds Archive features 731 sounds and noises in the armed forces category, including fighter jets, Humvees, tanks and other armoured vehicles.

The Sounddogs Military Sounds Archive contains an impressive collection of fighter jets, including the classic F-14 Tomcat and the Harrier Jet. Both of these jets, however, are more likely to be bound in a scrapyard than on a runway these days. If the name doesn't immediately ring a bell, the Harrier was the plane that could take off vertically because of its rotatable jets (and, yes, it did look very weird and somehow just, er, wrong).

The good old F-14 is famous for being the jet of choice for Tom Cruise (aka Maverick) in Top Gun.

ReWire enables system-internal exchange of audio data streams. Or in a nutshell: sharing audio playbacks between programs. In our case, we want to send the audio output from Soundminer to Pro Tools.

You're probably wondering why this should be good, after all, you just have bought a great Dolby Atmos processor or something else with extremely many outputs.

Unfortunately, there are some sticking points, especially when working with Pro Tools as Pro Tools does not like to share its hardware at all to other programms.

The ReWire makes it possible to monitor directly through your editing system and the hardware. So you can hear your playback with the current volume setting, you can control the audio playback with your controller like any other channel and you can playback multichannel files up to 7.1.

Let's check out how to enable ReWire!

The DAW menu displays the applications that are currently open and able to communicate with Soundminer. If you are working with a 'common' editing system like Pro Tools, Nuendo, Pyramix, Reaper... Soundminer will automatically make the selection.

If you are working with a different software like a picture editing system or a software sampler like Iris, make sure to select it! Depending on the application, Soundminer is now able to communicate with that system and share datas for example transfer path and others - which makes your work much easier!

Wow, show me more of that!

Please note: Your target app must be able to communicate or allow communication with Soundminer.

However, if Soundminer does not recognize your program, mail us! (Please don't mail us, if you're using Fairlight. Please see the next sentence...) But to be honest, in most cases the time has now come to switch to [insert here your own term for a contemporary system] editing system.
