Hawaii is the Earth-in-miniature, providing nearly all habitat types and 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones in merely 6/1000ths of one percent of the world’s land surface area.
To meet such a challenge of diversity, this unprecedented library was accomplished over two decades of repeated visits to Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and the Big Island. The distance from Hawaii to the closest mainland is 2,285 miles, making it the most isolated islands in the world, enough distance to allow a vast array of endemic species to evolve, particularly birds. Also the life underwater is a sonic wonderland, particularly the evocative, seemingly mystical songs of the Humpback Whale.
This library includes 40 species vocalizations (including the Hawaiian Crow, now extinct in the wild) and 105 ambiences which are conveniently divided into coastal and Up-Island, as well as day and night, to simplify workflow.
Use this comprehensive SFX toolbox to design stunning nature scenarios with extremely manifold and vivid exotic wildlife. No matter if you’re searching for thundering, wave-swept boulder beaches, birdsong-rich tropical forests, a fascinating symphony of thousands of animals during the day or some super-interesting and exotic “conversations” at night, it’s all available in this pack.
