  • Environments Wilderness Americas : Amazon Rainforest Play Track 117 sounds included, 566 mins total From: $110

    Wilderness Americas : Amazon Rainforest is a collection of sounds captured in the West part of the Amazon basin (El Oriente) across 3 South American countries : Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.

    This library focuses on the wildlife and wilderness sounds of the Amazon rainforest/jungle.
    Reaching the Amazon region is not easy and need many resources and time.
    Also the weather conditions are very bad for people and audio equipment: Extreme humidity, rain and heat don't work great with microphones and recorders.
    We have selected audio gear specifically for this purpose: Tropicalized microphones : sennheiser MKH 8020 and MKH 30 series in a surround configuration + a world-renowned recorder : Sound devices Mixpre 10T. We also brought a humidity-proof microphone basket (Cinela)
    This weather-proof setup permitted us to record even under strong tropical rain. (We have also a special mic cover which reduces the sound of raindrops on the microphone basket)

    We have always focused on places where they protect and respect the “Selva” (Forest), especially places like National Parks, Research Stations or community places.
    -> We went recording in these places: Madidi National Park (BOLIVIA), Podocarpus National Park (Ecuador), “Jatun Sasha” biological station (Ecuador),
    The forest around the Rio Napo (an affluent connection to the amazon river) (Ecuador), the “Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Cuyabeno” (Ecuador), and the region around Mocoa, between Santa Rosa Canyon and the Paway Reserva (Colombia).

    We used “sound trap” technics for long and immersive recordings: We hid microphones and protected recorders in a waterproof bag and let it sit for days and nights in the middle of the rainforest (usually 24 hours of non-stop recording).
    This system allowed us to record the sunrise, dawn chorus, and sunset – times where the animals are more active.
    Here is some animals we have recorded :

    Exotics Birds and more, especially parrots, parakeet, cuckoo, Oro Pendulo, cacique, magpie, etc.
    Insects and more, especially crickets, cicadas, mosquitos, flies, etc.
    Mammal : Amazonian flying squirrel, spider monkeys, and howler monkeys
    Amphibians: Frogs, toads

    Each sound recording are tagged with GPS coordinates and full Soundminer metadata.

    -The Full sound bank (Stereo + Surround/Ambisonic) contains 117 sound takes recorded in 24/96khZ (Total length : 566 minutes) and decline in 351 files

  • Environments Wilderness Americas : Geyser and Volcano Play Track 56 sounds included $95

    “Wilderness Americas : Geyser and Volcano” is a collection of sounds focused on geothermal phenomena of Central and North America.

    We recorded geysers in the Yellowstone National Park (USA) and two very actives volcanoes: the Fuego in Guatemala, and the Masaya in Nicaragua.

    To complete this sound library, we added natural sound elements which are very efficient for sound design as designed sound material:

    “Super volcano” eruption sounds, magma lake ebullition sounds, lava movement, and landslide sounds.

    The geyser and Masaya volcano sounds (magma lake, lava movement) were recorded with the Telinga Parabola with a Sennheiser MKH 8040. The Telinga was used for its powerful ability to focus on sound details at a reasonable distance.

    The explosions and eruptions of the Fuego volcano were recorded in surround with a Sennheiser DMS setup (MKH 8040-30) and also with the Telinga Parabola + MKH 8020.

    -This sound bank contains 56 sound takes recorded in 24/96 kHz, and a total of 122 files.

  • Nature & Countryside Winter Forest Ambience Play Track 24+ sounds included, 129 mins total From: $69

    We present here an ambience sound library from the collection ‘Wonders of Nature’ that captures the magical essence of dormant snowy forests.

    ‘Winter forest’ is not just about silence, it unfolds the delicate flow of lone natural immensity. Over the span of 2 years we recorded the cold north wood forest of the Laurentian in Canada.

    We captured chilly breezes, sparse birds, creaking barks, freezing rain, raven’s vocalizations, wolves, long cold silences. All of which resonate through these unique sceneries of quietude.

    We took care to record different time of the day but also different settings as well as various weather conditions as wind, blizzard, snow, freezing rain, stillness.

    The library is available in stereo, and surround.
