  • London Ambisonics is a collection of 55 immersive city ambience recordings from the streets, parks and subways of London, England. Use these versatile sounds to enliven your scenes with an authentic city atmosphere. Recorded in 24-bit/96kHz with a Sennheiser AMBEO VR mic, London Ambisonics was captured at various locations throughout London including St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Palace Theatre, the River Thames and more. Detailed metadata includes coordinates and cross streets for maximum geographic clarity.

    To capture these stunning ambiences, recordist Matt Snedecor traversed London with the goal of capturing its essence. In his own words:

    “London, although there’s a lot of English, just has a different feel and sound than a major US city. So I was partly looking for urban sounds, but also getting the feel of the city itself. It was definitely not as big and loud as NYC and there’s also things like different sirens and horns than we have here.”

    This library includes SurroundZone2 software by TSL Products that allows you to control the Ambisonics files by pointing “virtual microphones” any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. Unparalleled flexibility lets users match backgrounds with the specific setting of any scene.

    The Ambisonics recordings can be decoded to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond. In addition to giving sound editors and mixers greater flexibility and control over the recordings, these recordings are also perfect for 3D Audio applications including VR and 360º video.

    Key Features:

    • 55 sound effects (21GB)
    • 24-bit/96kHz broadcast .wav files
    • Descriptive embedded metadata
    • 100% Royalty-Free
