  • In High Desert Ambiences 3, get a large collection of the desolate and beautiful sounds of the American southwest. As the sun sets, hear how nocturnal wildlife comes alive as the day fades away. This collection features sounds that will make you fall in love with desert nights as you discover sounds ranging from soft owl hoots to lonely night songbirds to keening crickets. This library also includes Javelina (wild pig) snorts and teeth clicks, humming trains off in the distance, coyote howls and yips so close you’ll want to run for cover, and much more.

  • • In High Desert Ambiences 4: Coyotes, I revisit the place where my field recording journey started: West Texas. On my drive out, a massive wildfire was burning large parts of the Davis Mountains. The day I arrived firefighters were finally able to contain the blaze, but sadly not before 22,000 acres burned. Much of the wildlife is too slow to escape, but luckily one pack of coyotes was fast enough to climb over a ridge. Normally I hear coyotes out in the plains where they love hunting jackrabbits. That night, however, I was recording from the edge of the dead fire. I was stunned to hear howling deep in the valley! The pack had run into the mountains to escape the blaze.
    • In this library, hear the angst-ridden vocals of coyotes running to escape a wildfire. Hear the howls and yips of an extremely close pack bouncing from high valley walls. Hear an echo chamber filled with the haunting howls of coyotes who has just had their home burned.

  • Environments Hospital Ambiences Play Track 35+ sounds included, 103 mins total From: $50

    If you're after hospital sounds, here's a beautiful suite of surround sound hospital ambiences.

    Access to hospitals can be tricky. Credentials are required, and different rules must be followed for every step one takes deeper into the building. It's not as simple as just grabbing a rig and walking in the front door.

    Our hospital ambiences were recorded during one extensive day long shoot where we were granted access to one of the nation's top medical campuses. There are surprisingly few “hospital machines” making beeping noises at any given location within the building, which gives these sounds the flexibility to be used in any large institutional building.

    Both public and non-public areas are covered, including:
    – exterior traffic with a helicopter taking off
    – large 3 story lobby area
    – multiple nurse's stations
    – the family waiting room
    – the cafeteria
    – the pathology lab
    – an operating room prep

    Each location was recorded in dual MS and decoded using the excellent Schoeps double MS decoding tool.

    The end result is an immersive set of recordings that show off the reality of what a hospital really does sound like. Pick up a copy and cover your hospital scenes the right way.

    Two versions are available:

    Full version:
    • 24 bit, 96kHz quadraphonic split wav files
    • soundminer and bwav metadata tags
    • photography
    • 9 Gigabytes of sound
    • 103 minutes of sound

  • Environments Industrial Exteriors I Play Track 29 sounds included, 98 mins total $26

    Ambient recordings from various industrial sites, including the port of Aarhus with its bulk cargo and container terminals. Most of the sounds are quite generic though, and could be used in many different contexts. Some recordings are teeming with activity, while others feature deserted, yet humming and droning, industrial landscapes. Lots of HVAC with fans and pumps. Containers are moved, gravel is unloaded, engines are running. Very little wind, and hardly any legible speech. A few of the sounds are cut as seamless loops.

    Most of the sounds were originally recorded with a Sennheiser MKH60/30 M/S setup. A few sounds appear in both mono and stereo versions, where the stereo version are X/Y derived from the M/S source files and the mono versions are simply the Mid channel. I did this, because most people seem to prefer X/Y files for post-work, rather than M/S – but a down-mix of X/Y to mono would be inferior to using the original Mid-mic signal. 4 of the sounds were recorded with a quasi binaural setup . All sounds were captured in Aarhus, Denmark.
