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.

Check out the track list for more details. 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 are delivered as 48k and 96k/24bit .wav files. Collections come in easily downloadable zip files.

UCS Update: New purchases of Whoosh, Swoosh & Swing 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.
