Brice Carrington, Sound Designer Establishes Ultimate FX, a Sound Library That Revolutionizes the Industry by Bringing Hollywood Styled Sound Effects Directly to the Consumer

Ultimate FX, the new sound library led by sound designer Brice Carrington produces some of the world's most popular sounds for feature films, video games, software and ringtones. With over 20 years of experience, and amassing a vast sound collection, led Brice to create Ultimate FX, a surround sound library whose materials are in great demand by consumers. A key element of the signature Carrington sound is the use of a male African lion in virtually all of his sound effects. All of Carrington's sounds are original works that are recorded in the field, using six microphones, creating the true 5.1 surround sound.

Working in sound production over the years has afforded me the ability to create some of the most unique sounds you will ever hear, and we will soon have the ability to share our library of sound effects with the world. Now anyone can incorporate professional sound effects into their own home movies.

    According to Carrington, "Working in sound production over the years has afforded me the ability to create some of the most unique sounds you will ever hear, and we will soon have the ability to share our library of sound effects with the world. Now anyone can incorporate professional sound effects into their own home movies." An example of an Ultimate FX exclusive is the recreation of the famous sound of the T-Rex eating, in the film Jurassic Park. This sound was created by recording a lion crunching bones; the splash of hogs in water; the flesh tearing sound of a lion tearing the fur off of a rabbit; an elephant's roar; even the whirring of an old-school push lawn mower. Ultimate FX was the premier surround sound effects library of BMG/Killer tracks, one of the most state of the art sound libraries in the world. Ultimate FX has also been used at Universal Studios theme parks in Hollywood, and Sea World in Orlando, Florida. Ultimate FX is currently sold by Pinnacle Systems and Carrington is in development of a consumer based sound mixer which will allow its users to create their own sound effects in their home movies. "By including many ready made sound files from Ultimate FX in Pinnacle's video editing product line, customers can easily create polished, Hollywood-style results that are fun to share with family and friends," says Amy Whelan of Pinnacle Systems. "Beginning with Pinnacle Studio version 9, Carrington's audio content is now also included in Pinnacle's most recent iteration, Studio 11 Titanium Edition."

Carrington has always wanted to make professional sound effects you hear at the movies available to consumers and independent filmmakers, at an affordable price. This is not a new concept, but our approach to it is. It may not be popular to some, but recreating the sounds heard in movies and making them available to consumers makes sense. To show consumers how to make their own sound effects with the click of a mouse is a natural progression in amateur movie making and could be a great asset to the independent film maker.
