  • For this sound effects library, we traveled across Alaska, from the extreme north to the south coast to capture the spirit of these nordic and wild landscapes: Boreal forests, arctic and alpin tundras, glaciers, rivers, and lakes.

    Here the soundscapes reflect the extreme weather conditions: Silent ambiances punctuated by the elements: Wind, snow, rain, serving the erosion.

    In this wilderness, animals remain discreet. We had the chance to capture many birds with our microphones: Owls, ducks, seagulls, trumpeter swans, bald eagles, common ravens, migratory birds, and many other species – and a few other animals: Hoary marmots, arctic marmots, squirrels and moose.

    We traveled across Canada, from the east coast to the west coast, and from the north to the Southern American’ border to capture the spirit of this fantastic country and its wild landscapes:
    infinite forest and boreal forest, huge lakes, mountain rivers, torrents, ocean, plains, alpine tundra, mountain ranges, caves, and also city environments.

    Over the course of 3 months we captured quiet soundscapes from gigantic boreal forests only populated by birds and squirrels. We went to the end of the north road, to the edge of the Saint James Bay, where the ice winds of the Arctic met the tundra and the end of the boreal forest.
    We discovered many lakes and rivers that characterize this wild country. We crossed the gigantic plains of Manitoba to join the Rocky Mountains and the British Colombia.

    Facing this wilderness, we did not forget the cities and its humans: In Montreal and Ottawa we captured many atmospheres: markets, urban parks, streets and pedestrian areas.

    -> We went record in these locations: Nova Scotia, Montreal, Ottawa, Tadoussac, Bois Robert, Bay James, Ruppert river, Harricana river, Temiscaming forest, Chapleau Faunetic Reserve, Ontario Forest, Manitoba’s prairies, Northern Rocky Mountains, Salmon Glacier, Lynn canyon, Callaghan lake, Jasper.

  • Sintra’s woods are famous for their mystique and peculiar flora selection, a result of its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and by men’s own ingenuity on planting foreign species over the course of multiple centuries, resulting in a location that’s green throughout the four seasons, attracting a wide array of bird species and constant weather changes, sometimes all in a single day.

    Taking advantage of RØDE’s NT-SF1 ambisonic microphone, the woods were thoroughly explored, where each of the 25 audio files present in this library were recorded on different locations, resulting on multiple diverse atmospheres, where the predominant soundscapes are the beautiful early morning bird calls with smooth wind gusts and a couple of surprises happening throughout, courtesy of strange insects, angry ducks flying around, amongst other oddities.

    These audio files are perfect for neutral springtime soundscapes and given the nature of ambisonics, you can easily convert these B Format files onto any desired format (like regular stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround) with the correct plug-in, like RØDE’s own SoundField, which happens to be free to download. These are raw recordings where little to no hum or hiss removal techniques were applied.
