The Great Train Robbery: sound test

Here´s a soundtest I did on The Great Train Robbery. All sounds are from various soundeffects archives. Comments are welcome :)


  1. Pretty good job! Only recently I had to reconstruct some sound atmosphere in a clip and I found it particularly hard to get the footsteps and casual sounds (breathing, noises of clothing etc.) right. One minor suggestion: Maybe your soundscape is overly brilliant. Considering the age of the clip I would expect it to be slightly more muffled (esp. the train outside), mid-tone range and with some hissing and noise for added realism.

  2. Thanks!

    I agree it is a little to polished. But I didn´t consider the age of the film. The main goal was to try adding sounds so it sounds realistic. A little tough without doing any foleys, just using archive sounds- hard to find sounds that fits. But it was (still is) a fun experiment! :D
