Selekta is a professional audio asset management software that I developed and that I have been using actively and exclusively for many years working as a sound designer. It always helped me find the right sounds very fast and I'm planning to release it as a product soon. So if you're a sound editor/designer, musician or picture editor and have to manage a large audio library, Selekta might be the thing for you...
Quad City Berlin is a comprehensive collection of extra-wide quadrophonic recordings from Berlin, Germany. It was created to work as an internationally usable library of urban ambiences and traffic sounds while still capturing the unique sounds of Berlin.
Recently, I picked up a used Sound Devices MixPre-D, which supposedly uses the same circuit designs as their top-of-the-line products. And it came with a DSLR camera mount, so I could just attach my Sony thru its backside 1/8" socket on top of it, using it as the recorder.
The Rustle is a sound library with recordings of grass, leaves, scrubs, branches, rods, twigs & trees rustling in the wind. The goal was to create a versatile library with high quality recordings of natural sounding ambience and foley sweeteners, stricktly focused on rustling plants.
