If you need some cool noisy sounds then you better read/listen The Surprisingly Awesome Sound of 156 Office Machines from the 60s: an article dedicated to the composer Rolf Liebermann and his short song for 156 machines, like typewriters, calculator machines, office perforators, metronomes and so on.

As you can see during these last weeks we are doing our best to find the best job opportunities for professionals in the field if Sound and so here we go with something amazing: Rovio Entertainment is seeking for a Senior Sound Designer, do you want to enter into the angry team in Finland?

Our friend Tim Prebble is unstoppable: he released the new Hiss And A Roar library called Amb003 White Water, a sound monster in 24bit, 96kHz  and composed of 7.9GB uncompressed as 55 .WAV files.
