A gunshot sound effect recorded for a high school production of the musical Heathers. It was recorded on a Zoom H1 and was made by a theatrical cap gun. I recorded it at a distance of about 5 feet and then again at a distance of about 40 feet from the audience and allowed the sound to reverberate both times. Then I duplicated both and mixed in both original sounds on top of each other, plus each sound pitched down 1 octave and the 40-feet away recording at 2 octaves down, plus the closer recording pitched one octave up. We then added and adjusted reverb in Audacity and adjusted the sync of all the clips to be aligned, and adjusted the mix to make it sound as real as possible.
Great popcap. I like the immediacy of it bundles - it's very clearly a shot, it's played up well for the stageform, and I really appreciate how much editing you've put into making this sound the very best version of itself.
So touched was I by the effort that I went ahead and used this in most contexts to portray 'gun' in the non-commercial comedy-horror film 'Hamhouse vs. Evil', because it's a movie set in a movie set in America about nightshift fast-food friends up against the endless hordes of the damned so of course there's gonna be popcaps.
