Urban USA Sound Effects by Boom

URBAN USA – 3D SURROUND AMBIENCES delivered in a brand-new 3D Surround format, is the perfect fit for your 3D urban ambient scenes. From calm downtown areas to busy crossroads and markets, it features both indoor and outdoor subway areas, train stations, highways, parks, fountains, urban beaches, and much more. If your next project is set in an urban area, this collection of urban sounds entails everything your needs require. The duration of the files vary from 3 to 11 minutes to give you more flexibility and less repetitions in your sound design. URBAN USA contains both detailed sound scenes as well as quiet basic layers.

 

3D Surround Sound

 

URBAN USA is the first product in Boom's brand new 3D SURROUND sound effect series and is suitable for any surround application, including IMMERSIVE AUDIO LIKE AURO 3D, DOLBY ATMOS, 360° VIDEOS AND VR.

 

It marks a new era of surround sound FX libraries with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. 3D Surround delivers better results where conventional surround techniques reach their limits. This occurs especially, although not exclusively, in VR, where events must sound 100% convincing depending on the rotation and tilt of the user’s head. With our new 3D SURROUND series, you are ideally equipped for not only VR, but any other application that requires high-definition and crystal-clear surround sound.

 

HIGH-PRECISION SOUND LOCATION
Conventional surround sound often provides a somewhat diffuse image of the sound source, making it hard to precisely pinpoint the direction where the sound is coming from and where it is moving to. 3D Surround draws a crystal-clear picture of the source recording for a complete sound experience.

 

THE 3RD DIMENSION – SUITED FOR VR & DOLBY ATMOS
3D Surround adds a height layer as a third dimension compared to regular surround. The sound not only reaches the listener’s ear from the side, but also from above. This results in a much better localisation of the sound source and a much more immersive listening experience which makes it the perfect surround type for VR applications and Dolby Atmos.

 

Boom's 3D Surround libraries are recorded with the highly-acclaimed SCHOEPS ORTF-3D setup, a cuboid 8ch level/time difference ambience setup. The main benefit is an additional height layer compared to regular surround recording setups. It consists of 8 supercardioid microphones. The height layer offers a much wider range of spatial sound effects and a more realistic three-dimensional reproduction. Therefore, it provides a clearer representation of spatial depth, a more natural surround impression, improved envelopment, and an authentic feel.

 

A WHOLE RANGE OF URBAN SOUND DIVERSITY
URBAN USA covers an immense spectrum of different settings of urban city life. From bustling downtown areas such as subway stations, financial districts, as well as marinas and construction sites, or quieter areas including beaches, parks, and suburbs, URBAN USA offers an authentic and detailed picture of American everyday city-life. As usual, delivered in the best possible quality to exceed the requirements of any professional sound design challenge.

 

DETAILED SOUND SCENES AS WELL AS QUIET BASIC LAYERS
URBAN USA contains a wealth of rich and expressive sound scenes to create spot-on sound design. In addition, you get a variety of different quiet base layers, perfect for creating the sonic foundation of an urban scene.

 

STEREO VERSION IS INCLUDED WITH THE 3D SURROUND
In addition to the ORTF-3D files, the 3D SURROUND edition also contains all files in 2.0 stereo for your convenience to save time on unnecessary conversions. Instead, you can instantly use these great new sounds for all your projects that don’t require surround sound.
