After 12 years of work, Cornell's Macaulay Library archive, the largest collection of wildlife sounds in the world, is now digitized and fully available online.

"In terms of speed and the breadth of material now accessible to anyone in the world, this is really revolutionary," said audio curator Greg Budney. All archived analog recordings in the collection, going back to 1929, have and can be heard for free online.

I like the natural reverb thats happening in the coyote clip. it makes me want to make impulses of a forest.

That's amazing, but what is there to change? you could use that call as it is unprocessed and people would be asking you how you did it!
Grabbing it for sure, thanks.

have you picked Iris up yet?
Bought it off of a guy over at KVR, simple, but pretty cool for sound design!

Seriously went nuts and bought Iris, Granite and Machfive 3 recently.
Between those and Metasynth I'm covered. 8)

And so we witness the birth of a new genre.

Always joked that I play with bleeps, drums and monkey noises, but so far I've never actually used a monkey sample. This will change soon.

Yes! I use RX for restoration work and have often used it for sound design on the side, so Iris is exactly what I needed since it's just the RX engine inside of a sampler. Endless possibilities with that thing. Highly recommended.

Agreed, It's sort of a one trick pony, but the trick is very unique.
It's definitely a 1.0 release though. The fact they made the filter universal instead of one for each of the three samples and the sub is a huge oversight, or a way to get you to upgrade to Iris 2.0 :x

In a similar situation MOTU's Machfive 3 incorporates IRCAM granular, time/pitch technology. So you get some of the same features as Metasynth's granular engine in a sampler. Definitely my two favorite purchases of the last couple months!
