Phase Two

Hello, and welcome to phase two of Blackguard Stock Media Group!  We are proud to announce that starting in late 2015 Blackguard SMG will begin offering high quality sound effect libraries.  As with our musical offerings, we have an opinion on what makes for a high quality sound effect:

First Technical execution should be flawless.  High quality mics plugged into high quality pre-amps.  Attention paid to details such as mic placement, environmental control, good signal to noise ratio, etc.

Second Sounds should be highly usable.  It’s great to have a recording of a rare species of bird walking across a piano during a rainstorm, but will you ever use it?  Our aim is to provide sound editors and designers with valuable “go to” sounds for their core libraries.  All recordings will be presented with high sample rates, meta data tagging, and accompanying photographs for reference.

Third Processing should be kept to a minimum.  Many sound libraries are overly processed and render the sounds unusable in anything but the most over the top cartoon-ish scenarios.  We prefer to present our sounds in their raw state and leave any processing for effect to the end user.

Look out for SFX additions beginning in the third quarter of 2015.  As always, feel free contact us at Blackguardsmg@gmail.com.  Thanks!
