For TONSTURM The Fight we went the extra mile to get you the most cruel and convincing fight sound effects:
All the sounds for the fight were recorded during eleven different recording sessions. We recorded realistic body falls at different locations with a professional trained dancer and a martial arts fighter. We also dropped a prepared 80 kilo heavy punching bag from varying hight onto concrete.
To get the most realistic and terrifying hits, kicks, slaps, clubs and punches we treated a dead pig with all kind of tools in a recording studio. We also brought in a professional trained boxer to perform those heavy punches that made the pig shake!
During three different recording sessions we captured lots of fruit and vegetable sounds with varying mic setups. We wrapped peaces of leather cloth around the vegetables to get even creepier sounding fleshy, gory, bone brakes and rips.
Besides foley sessions in our studio we also recorded two martial arts fighters in a professional foley studio to come up with fresh and unique sounding cloth and whoosh sound effects. Here we also recorded small fight sequences to capture the authentic sound of a close combat fight.
Finally we brought our carefully edited material to 48 Volt Studios in Hamburg. Where we sent selected sounds through finest analog outboard mastering gear to generate some hot sounding variants!
It was important for us to preserve the natural dynamic range of the recordings. So no excessive compression or limiting was used. This means, that it might appear that you have to turn up the level a little more compared to some existing old school sound effects.
