Gunshot Sound Effects
Gunshot sound effects are recorded outside and als field recording to get the most realistic sounds for your production. Gunshot sound effects can have long natural reverb, depending on the location where the guns are recoded. The Rob Nokes Sound Effects Library provides a wide variety of gunshot sound effects, recorded in valleys or in open fields. Loud gunshot sounds produces a loud and thunderclap like reverb tail which is nice and very natural.
When recording gunshot sound effects the recording location is very important. The gunshot sound effects in this selection were recorded in quiet valleys, also in the wintertime to reduce unwanted noise like sounds from crickets, vehicles or other things. This gunshot sounds can be used as sweeteners to add the tail reverb to a more dry gunshot sound, recorded from location or from another recording.
Gunshots from Rifles
Rifles produces very nice and loud shots to record gunshot sound effects. If you want to have an even louder and more thunder-like gunshot, you have to increase the size of the gun! Shotguns does not sound that loud than rifles. Also pistols does not produce that loud gunshots. Machine guns creates a rhythmic series of loud and intense gunshots, bigger guns like cannons or artillery guns can make a extremely loud gunshot sounds.
How to record Gunshot sound effect?
If you have the chance to record gunshots, make sure to record from different distances and with different recorders and channels. If you record gunshot sound effects in a valley or an opten field, place a pair of stereo microphone close to the gun, another pair in a bigger distance to the gunshot and if you have the chance, place on pair of stereo microphone far away in the valley to record the gunshot sound effects' tail or reverb. Another option to record gunshot sound effect is, to turn one pair of microphones off-axis, so with the front side of the microphone pointing away form the gunshot, to record the guns reverb only, not the direct gunshot sound effect signal.
