This short mixed boxing clip compares the sound effects Hit the Mat has used for punching sounds over the years. From the “humble beginnings”, to the deeper sounds, to sounds recorded in the HTM ring studio of actual things (including people) being punched.
Which sound effects do you prefer?
We also have a comparison of the original HTMV08 edit and release, and the raw DV footage quality. While it was disappointing to find out that old HTM Boxing videos were recorded in LP mode on the DV tapes, comparing the raw to the overcompressed edit, and those outdated sound effects, do make a recapture and remaster project seem worth it. We’ll do that as we are able to!
