Blades is a collection of 54 audio files containing a whopping 260 individual audio clips. Once again, variation is the key here. As a sound designer I get bored putting in the same “sword hit” sound over and over. So, I went out and grabbed machetes, daggers, bayonets, a military sword, and even some plastic safety scissors to bring you a plethora of variation (“do you even know what a ‘plethora’ is?”). This collection gives you sheath sounds, blade scrapes, clanks, hits, schings, and yes, even scissors snipping. Best of all, if you need 10 sword hits in the scene, you only have to import one or two tracks. My personal favorite sound is of two machetes being used like scissors – for that over-the-top, super-dramatic scene where the hero decides to chop off his hair and get down to the business of killin’ zombies.
This collection provides some new and interesting sounds, as well as a ton of variations so your soundtrack never gets old! All Soundopolis tracks include metadata tags so they are easy to find using any search engine. All tracks were recorded, edited, mastered, and packaged as 48k/24bit wave files. Collections come in easily downloadable zip files. NOTE: the screams and yells in the preview ARE NOT included in the collection!

Whoosh, Swoosh & Swing is a large collection of 315 “whipping” sounds made by various objects including golf clubs, swords, spatulas, fishing poles, cloth, and much more. These sounds are essential to a good fight or sports scene, as body parts, weapons, or flying objects whip around the screen! Some sounds in this collection were made by blowing across a pop-filter placed in front of a microphone. This allows you to customize your own, much slower whooshing sounds to fit any given situation. Try it yourself!
Objects/Methods Used: - Human Mouth - Dish Brush - Electrical Cable (twirling whooshes) - Cloth flag - Curtain Rod - Fencing Sword - Fishing Pole - Golf Club Handle - Tennis Racquet - Spatulas - Pasta Spoon - Golf Clubs - Underwater - Rumbles
Analog Tape Alterations: Included in this library is a collection of sounds that were sped up and slowed down using analog tape. The process also changes the pitch. These sounds are IN ADDITION to their original sounds included in the library. The method was simple: playback from Pro Tools to an analog tape machine. Record them to tape. Change tape speed. Record them back into Pro Tools. It was a blast. And the result was a collection of vintage-sounding files that are either faster and higher pitched than the original, or slower and lower pitched than the original. It's a must-have if you need old-school Kung Fu sounds.

Collections come in easily downloadable zip files.
Gore Toolkit HD has everything you need for your bloody, gory, action/horror/sci-fi adventure. If you need body damage sounds, you’ve hit the jackpot here.
Fresh Gore! is a collection of 536 sound clips on 93 audio tracks - recorded, edited, and delivered as 96k/24bit stereo WAV files. The collection includes blood, intestines, bones, flesh, punches, squishes, goops, splats, chops, tinks, chews, stabs, crunches, tears, sawing, some blade sounds, and so much more. I mean I terrorized so much produce and a large ham that there’s probably a warrant out for me!!! And I couldn’t help myself after demolishing coconuts to record the classic “coconut horse trotting” sound… Bonus!
Fienup’s “Classic” Gore COMES FREE! This is a whole other batch of sounds from earlier in my career, consisting of 262 audio clips on 46 stereo audio tracks, recorded, edited, and delivered as 48k/24bit WAV files. These sounds are straight out of B or even C-horror films. Don’t get me wrong - these sounds still serve me well in every action/horror film I work on! The “Classic” gore consists of more blood, bones, flesh, punches, smacks, chops, crunches, snaps, squish, squirts, splats, oozes, whooshes, and even a rubbery/stretching sound. Between these two collections you are set for almost any kind of combat sounds you need!

UCS Update: New purchases of Combat Bundle come fully equipped with UCS metadata and filenames. Previously purchased copies can also be updated.
Soundminer Users: To update your old version to the new UCS metadata, create a new database, scan in your copy of the collection, change the "Manufacturer" metadata column to say 'Soundopolis' (without the quotes, and capitalize the first 'S'), select the "Database" dropdown menu, and select "Lookup Metadata from Cloud". Once the metadata is done updating, you can select all of the files, right click on them, and select "Embed Selected". NOTE: THIS WILL CHANGE THE FILE NAMES!!! If this action will impact older projects that use these sounds, it is your responsibility to save a copy with the original filenames somewhere so as not to impact those projects.
Other Update Options: Below are two zip files. One is a text file with all of the metadata generated by Soundminer. The second is that same information in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. These should help if you use a program other than Soundminer. For directions on how to update your particular program, please consult with the manufacturer's website. Soundopolis only uses Soundminer, and is not familiar with the metadata updating procedures of all of the other programs available.
