Is there a SFX library of "surfaces"?
In the past, I've rolled a car down a hill with the engine off, but in Los Angeles in the summer, I wasn't able to get snow. Also, I haven't been able to approximate and "fake" the sound of wheels through snow. Or even grass very well. Any ideas?
This is an area that older mics have some cool uses for. Also if your mic setup becomes undone you wont be crying over a pair of schoeps. Grass falls under the " if a tree falls & no one is there to hear it catagory".. Mud, dirt, grit, rocks, water ... seem to be the nuts & bolts For all of you that are looking to part with a portion of your library.. Try Hollywood edge..their always looking.
