Recording Dynamite Explosions for Sound Effects

Sound ideas is on location in Haliburton, Ontario recording the sound effects of dynamite explosions.

A series of blasts of explosive charges will be used to turn this solid rock wall into gravel.

Workers begin by clearing water from the more than 100 blast holes that have been pre-drilled to hold the explosives. Next they place the initial charge attached to a long fuse into the blast hole. They then set the main charge on top of the previous one. Finally they pack in a third layer of explosive material to fill the rest of the cavity and when the "all clear" is given, the explosions begin.

Our extreme sound effects collections offer an outstanding selection of destructive sound effects and sequences - everything from explosions and blasts, disasters, earthquakes, marine accidents, underwater mishaps, crashes, crunches, hits and impacts, and loads of wonderful debris and destruction. We also offer electrical sparks, arcs and zaps, crashes, smashes, hits and punches, large impacts, guns and helicopters, electronic beeps & buttons, telemetry and computers, a full range of explosions, weather and natural disasters, and an entire galaxy of potent sci-fi FX, ambiences, and alternate realities.

Because sound ideas goes to extremes to get the sound effects you need.
