echo | collective : fields — high end sound made by high end people



We are a custom sound effects production company. We specialize in high end ambient and field recordings available royalty-free for use in film, television, and games. We use the best equipment and techniques and scout out the most interesting and difficult to access locations for our libraries.

We strive to make our files as flexible and user friendly as possible.

  • minimum 24 bit 96kHz BWAV format
  • rich embedded soundminer metadata
  • BWAV header embedded metadata
  • descriptive filenames
  • thoughtfully edited and organized
  • surround files are delivered split mono for ease of routing

Some of our libraries are packaged as .rar and as multi-part .rar files.


.rar is a data compression format similar to .zip.  Its more efficient than zip, and it offers the capability to split a product into a multi-part file that automatically recompiles itself into the proper folder structure when it gets extracted.


Here’s how to deal with them:


  • First download and install a free .rar extraction utility.  Any of the top his will work well.
  • If you have a multi-part .rar file, you’ll see one file with a .rar extension, and then a few other files that have .r00 an .r01 extensions.  Make sure they are all fully downloaded and place them in the same folder or on your desktop.
  • Once all of the pieces are in the same folder, use the extraction utility to open the file with the .rar extension.  The utility will automatically recognize the other parts of the file and will extract all of the parts into a useful folder structure.

Its that simple.  Open it up and enjoy the library!
