  • SPANISH PRIMARY SCHOOL brings you interior and exterior stereo recordings of a primary school located in Cordoba, Spain.

    Key features:

    • Kids age from 5 to 11 years old.
    • Locations: interiors (main entrance, corridors, school cafeteria, classroom) and exteriors (schoolyard).
    • Mainly focused on Castilian Spanish. In those cases, the Spanish keyword has been added, both in the filename and the description.
    • Non-verbal communication is also included.
    • General ambiences with more or less distant voices (teachers and students) and activities such as doors opening, dragging chairs, footsteps, school bags with wheels, etc. Any other undesirable noise (traffic, birds) is absent in these tracks.
    • A few room tones of empty locations (classroom, corridor, kitchen, cafeteria) with noises coming from far away are also included.
    • Classroom recordings include actions such as playing, chatting, packing up, laughing, whistling, clapping, cheering and screaming. From small to bigger groups. Most of them can be used for any school, but some others have a specific Spanish identity. All these files have been recorded with two different microphones.
    • Most of the recordings have been stealth-recorded in order to preserve the nature of the action and not influence the performance. For this, Sony D100 and Zoom H2n were used.
    • Whenever possible, another setup was used (Zoom F8 + Sennheiser 8040/30 in MS).
    • School objects (pencils, chairs, wrapping paper) recorded in mono from a near perspective.
    • All files come with Soundminer embedded metadata, in 96 kHz and 24 bit.
    • Descriptive markers have been included to highlight interesting events in an otherwise featureless waveform. These markers can be read in programs such as Izotope RX, Reaper, and Soundminer.

  • I can't tell you the number of times I've needed a good clean suburban atmos to fill out a scene. I've got plenty in my sfx collection, but not a whole lot that are local to Australia. So I thought I'd remedy that!

    This collection covers a variety of locations, from quieter suburbs with a gentle breeze, a distant dog, some crickets perhaps and maybe a few birds, to the more densely populated areas, where the traffic and background noise is much higher and some construction is always going on. There some nighttime stuff in there, some ocean side, some with nature at its finest and even lawnmower and whipper snipper recordings so you can layer it all up.

    All recorded at 24bit/96kHz, the library is 2.5GB and contains 36 tracks.
