If you’ve been following my journey around the world for a while, then you probably know that I have several airport and aircraft sound effect libraries already up here on the site.

This new collection of aircraft sounds includes private jet sounds from 18 different jets. What excites me most about this catalog is for me is that I could finally record on the side of an airfield (instead of only from the front and back of the runways)!

Welcome to Aspen Airport! With only two full days in Aspen and Snowmass, I finally had the chance to record new aircraft sounds. What 's so special about it is the fact that I could record a very close landing and take off pass by of several private jets and smaller commercial airplanes instead of recording in front or behind the runways! It was a fantastic day with perfect weather conditions. Okay, I technically got grilled from the sun but for sounds like this, always worth it! In this short video you listen to the sound recorded with the Wildtronics parabolic dish! It's awesome because I can follow the plane to record the sounds. But just in case I would mess something up, I recorded with the Zoom H3VR and with the DPA 4060 as well. I am going to create a special sound library for these recordings and if you need some awesome private jet pass by sounds just wait a little bit or shoot me a message. 🙂 . . . . . #FreeToUseSounds #ZoomCreators #musicproducer #sound #musicproduction #recordingstudio #soundrecording #experimental #soundengineer #producer #audio #musician #audio #technology #foleyartist #prosound #editors #mixing #recordingstudio #sounddesign #soundeffects #sounddesigner #filmindustry #SoundMixer #mixingandmastering #soundrecordist #recordingartist #locationsound #ProSound #composer
The small ski resort town of Aspen, Colorado has a small airport which only allows certain aircraft types like the Citation XLS+, Challenger 650 Phenom 300, Bombardier to land.
To record these sounds, I positioned myself very close to the airfield. I was able to record some amazing pass by, ground taxi pass by from the distance, the shut down of the engines in the background, extremely loud and roaring takeoffs/landing sound effects from these luxury private jets and Bombardier commercial planes operated by American Airlines. Also, I should mention that I was able to catch one propeller plane take off and pass by.
Field Recording Gear
Exciting news… I bought new high-quality sound equipment! For these sounds, I recorded on three recorders at the same time. I used the Zoom F4 with the DPA 4060 microphones fixed on an A-B rig, the Zoom F8n with the brand new Wildtronics Mono/Stereo parabolic dish (so I could follow the planes) and I positioned the Zoom H3VR to record in four channel ambisonic sounds!
Bandcamp only allows stereo recordings so you find all recordings from the Zoom F4 and the Zoom F8n with the stereo version of the parabolic dish inside this library for free. The ambisonic sounds ( four channel recordings) can be found inside the VR sound library.
This luxury private jet sound library gives you new possibilities that are endless if it comes to sound design, music production or as the original sound for film or any other of your production! Enjoy listening and have fun with these new royalty free sound effects!
