British Suburbia

'British Suburbia' by SKYES Audio takes you to a world filled with warm beer, cricket, and endless parks that you can enjoy all year long with free library updates over the coming months!
 
  • Nature & Countryside British Suburbia Play Track 15 sounds included, 35 mins total $100 $65

    We all know what central London sounds like. It’s noisy, crowded, and full of people trying to sell you watches. Ok, maybe that last point wasn’t that relevant, but have you ever wondered what lies beyond?

    A short drive towards the suburbs will reveal a world filled with warm beer, cricket, and endless parks, where deer roam free.

    When planning this library, the intention was to capture the quieter side of the metropolis, all year round! As a result, this library will receive multiple updates over the coming months. There will be one more summer update soon, along with an autumn update, winter update, and spring update.

    If you purchase the library now, you will get it at the lowest price, and you will also get all the remaining updates for free.

    So far, the first version of the library contains 15 .WAV stereo files at 96kHz/24 bit, recorded with a Sony PCM-D100/1, and contains approximately 35 minutes of summer ambiances in different locations throughout suburban London. Over the following months, I’ll keep traveling around the suburbs, collecting more and more ambiances, each update representing its own season.

    Each file has been carefully edited in iZotope RX in order to remove as much unwanted noise as possible, such as random shouting, barking, etc. This will provide you with clean ambiences that will add character to your projects, without distracting the audience. That being said, do please note that the recordings contain some amount of traffic noise, and some also contain airplane noise. This is, of course, unavoidable when recording in a city such as London.

    In addition to that, each file has been filled to the brim with SoundMiner metadata, allowing you to quickly search through the files, waste less time and dedicate more time to what you love doing!

    If you have any questions about this library, feel free to quickly send me an e-mail. I tend to reply within minutes.
