The sound of a heavy impact with the earth followed by falling debris.
Constructed in LIVE!
I used a reversed kick drum, pitched and automated for the pre impact sound and four different kick drums filtered and trimmed to create the impact. Made the falling dirt and debris sound from a clap, bongo, finger snap, cabasa, shaker, guiro and conga hits put through LIVE!’s Erosion plug in and then a grain delay.
Created for the "Earth Wind Fire Water competition".

    I used this sound in my podcast. I had to post the link in a separate post because it kept coming back as spam when I included it with my comment. Episode four, Trinity: Chapter One (on the website it says “1”). Your information appears in the episode description. Thank you and great work.

    Good for a close-up of a heavy thing hitting the ground and the debris sprinkling into the lake nearby ...
