Nature & Countryside

Nature sound effects and recordings, from forests, jungles, plains and fields

  • The Forest Ambience 1 library focuses on the ambient sounds of Central Florida’s forest ecology.  The focus of this library is a collection of as much general background ambience as possible with minimal focus on any one individual element.  It also focuses on a Mid Day – Early Dusk time frame.

    The range of ambiences include windy gusts through thick canopies, forests alive with birds and bugs, and erie dead silences void of any life recorded near one of the nation’s largest active bombing ranges.  Also included are a few plane flyovers and some outdoor trail ambience near an apartment complex as a bonus.

    Captured in environments such as:
    • Bottomland hardwoods
    • Pine Flatwoods
    • Scrub
    • Upland hardwoods
    • Urban nature trail

  • Environments Forest Ambience One Play Track 21 sounds included, 90+ mins total
    Rated 4.00 out of 5
    $35

    ‘Forest Ambience One’ is the first library in my nature ambience series where I intend to record the vast and unique forests of Finland and their changing sound between the four seasons.

    This library consists of 21 unique pine and birch forest ambiences recorded in Northern Finland during summer. Most of the ambiences have occasional birds in them but I was lucky to capture the sound of the forests without the birds too.

    Due to the varying weather during the summer I also decided to record some of the locations when it was raining lightly and also when the rain had passed to get that after rain dribble.

    The average length of each ambience is between 3-5 minutes so you can easily create your own ambience loops for e.g. video games.

    Forest Ambience One is recorded with Sound Devices 702 and a stereo pair of Sennheiser 8040’s in ORTF – and you get the sounds in two formats: 96 kHz, 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz, 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • Nature & Countryside Forest Reverb – Outdoor Impulse Responses Play Track 134 sounds included, 6:41 mins total
    Rated 4.00 out of 5
    $25

    Get a collection of 134 impulse responses – recorded in the forest.

    What if, instead of going to the forest to record the sound, we can find a way to bring the characteristics of the forest to us? Say, for example, we have recorded a sound in the studio like the sound of chopping wood or foley footsteps, but we want them to sound like they are in the forest?

    There is a way to emulate this. To make our source sound like it is, in fact, in a forest. The answer is to use the impulse response of the forest and one of the convolution reverb plugins for your DAW.

    An impulse response of the forest (or “forest IR”), is the sum of reflections from trees, foliage and the ground by very short signal at high volume. For this sound library, I recorded different impulses in a stereo at different locations of the forest with perfect conditions. Also, the library includes alternate versions of these impulses for use in the processing of the sounds that are far away from the listener.

    Note: Requires a convolution reverb plugin
    – here are some free options:

    For using these impulse responses, you need a convolution reverb plugin (not included). The library can be used with the built-in convolution plugins in many DAWs like ProTools, FL Studio amd Sony Vegas, and there are other commercial options on the market, but costs can be high. For starters, you can use a free convolution reverb from the following

    LiquidSonics’ Reverberate LE (Win)
    SIR by Christian Knufinke (Win)

    A wide choice of IR’s will allow you to choose the most appropriate nuanced impulse response for your material. As you gain more experience with this forest IR, you will find that you can quickly adjust the ratio and volume level for wet and dry channels and effectively use other options of convolution reverb. This powerful forest reverb emulation will be incredibly effective for your sounds.
