  • 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.

    • 24 bit, 96kHz quadraphonic split wav files
