FirstCom Music announced that it will host a launch party for FirstCom SoundFX at NAB 2013 in Las Vegas. This new library is a rich and dynamic tool for producers to access thousands of quality online sound effects.
“Our clients needed a more effective way to search for sound effects,” says Carol Riffert, vice president/general manager for FirstCom Music. “To meet this need, we sought out and partnered with one of the industry’s most recognized sound editors, Rob Nokes. Together we created a powerful, user-friendly sound effects site with a streamlined search, audition and download process.”
The official launch party will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, April 8 in the FirstCom Music Booth #SL5820 .
Renowned sound editor Rob Nokes has traveled the globe in search of new sounds and now you can have access to this outstanding collection of sound effects and the dynamic online search tool that makes finding the right effect easy. His extensive list of credits include The Gunrunner Billy Kane, L.A. Noir, X-Men: First Class, Wolverine, Real Steel, Snow White and the Huntsman, The A-Team, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Race to Witch Mountain, to name a few.
"As a supervising sound editor and sound effects recordist / designer, I strive to provide sound effects that enhance the filmmakers' story and enable the filmgoer to believe that they are immersed in the story with the characters. Recording and experiencing sounds from all over the world increases my knowledge and capability to select and create the best sound effects for the film,” says Nokes.
Over the past few years, Nokes has recorded fireworks in the Punta Del Este harbor in Uruguay, tropical fish in Saipan, spelunking the caves of Tinian, World War II planes, a Stuart Tank, spelunking the Christmas Caves in the Czech Republic, numerous Monasteries in Prague, WWII concentration camp, the steppes of Kazakhstan for indigenous voices and music, Chilean racetracks, the LA morgue, go-karts, modified cars, numerous dogs, football games, college basketball, junk yards, F-18 Jets, and much more. “I am excited to partner with FirstCom Music and to bring thousands of my best sound effects to the FirstCom SoundFX library," says Nokes.
