Jet engines are a very unique kind of sound producers. Gaseous or liquid fuel is violently mixed with extremely dense compressed air and then gets burned (don’t do this at home). And this is only one element of the sound. Others are the fan, the compressor, the combustor, the turbine – what the heck – it sounds amazing.

To get the special, isolate the common
We all know how jet fly bys sound as we’re constantly hearing them above us in passenger airplanes. If you live in a region where fighter aircrafts are practising test flights, you know how low-flying jet engines sound. We got even closer with our new Micro BOOM SFX library JET – FLY BYS.

What we recorded
We recorded F18 Hornet jets from the United States Navy that were flying VERY low above our microphones. We deliver those fly by sounds in three distances (close, medium, distant) and three different microphone setups (MS, XY, HH = hammerhead, a custom setup our sound designers invented and which is perfect for such recordings). Close and medium have variations containing the typical jet engine whistle.
What's so special about this library?
These sounds are perfect for the obvious purposes like jet fly bys but with a little processing they also come in handy for other scenarios like rockets, whooshes and more.
BOOM Library sound FX come as WAV files, meaning you can import and work with them in any software that can handle this file type. Here are the most common audio and video editing software tools that work perfectly with our sound FX
- Logic Pro
- Ableton Live
- Pro Tools
Video Editing Software
- Final Cut Pro X
- After Effects
- Vegas Pro
- Media Composer
Rich Metadata Embedded
To provide you with the fastest and easiest workflow possible, all files contain extensive metadata like file description & keywords to quickly find the sounds you’re looking for. Metadata can be read and processed by audio management tools. Some digital audio workstations feature an included search tool that can also read embedded metadata. Here are the most common audio management tools:
