  • Ambisonics Ambisonic Steam Trains Play Track 55+ sounds included, 218 mins total From: $45

    Ambisonic Steam Trains features recordings of 3 different narrow-gauge railways in Saxony/Germany where they meander through narrow valleys and bends.
    The library includes more than 3.5 hours of recordings that are taken directly at the train drivers position in the cabin as well as from wagon platforms and passenger seats.
    Also recordings of train pass-bys, shunting and service operations in the depot are included.
    With the Ambisonic format it is guaranteed that the acoustically rich and diversified surroundings of steam trains in action are captured spherical in each and every detail.

    Ambisonic Steam Trains is available in two versions:
    Ambisonic and Stereo

    The Ambisonic version delivers 4 channel A-Format files recorded with the Ambeo VR microphone in upright position.
    These files need conversion to B Format prior to further processing.

    The Stereo version contains the same number of files with equal playing length, but, as the name suggestions, only in stereo versions. All takes are already decoded to 180° stereo that can be manipulated with any stereo width plugin.

  • Cars Crowds and Streets in Tokyo Play Track 133+ sounds included $55 $44

    Every area in Tokyo has a unique landscape and distinguishing atmospheres.
    Because of it being a metropolitan city, once you step into one of the alleys, skyscrapers defuse the traffic sound which then becomes city rumbles and only delivers distant trains and distant traffics.

    And on the contrary, main streets are always busy with traffics and pedestrians.

    This time, we captured crowds and streets from many locations in Tokyo.
    Crowds in TOKYO features Japanese crowds (walla) such as in authentic izakaya bars, cafes, train stations, and on shopping streets, fish market streets and more.
    And STREETS in TOKYO features busy traffics on highways, main streets, distant traffic from alleys and city rumble and more.

  • Trains Distant Trains Play Track 68 sounds included, 200 mins total $39

    Distant Trains Sound Library delivers impressive multi-channel recordings of trains that pass by in a distance of at least 300 meters up to 1.5 kilometres.
    Included are pass bys of freight, commuter and passenger trains plus single locomotives.
    In order to capture the impressive walls of sound caused by passing trains an arrangement of 6 microphones was used. This setup encompasses stereo-pairs of MKH3040-MS, MKH8090-ORTF and MKH8040-WideAB. All pairs are recorded to separate files that are now available as time-aligned Reaper sets.
    Each recording session took place at nights so that it was possible to capture extremely long approaches and tails that fade out to natural and calm night ambience without any disturbance by road traffic or other unwanted noises.

  • Trains Runaway Trains Play Track 216 sounds included, 118 mins total $79

    Immerse yourself in the second library of the Ambisonics series by USO. These “Runaway Trains” were recorded with a Senneheiser Ambeo and a Sonosax R4+ in and around the Milano Greco Pirelli railway station, which is part of the so-called “Milan Circle Line,” a railway loop which circumnavigates the city.
    The library contains a lot of passing trains and ambient sounds recorded very close to the railway, both by day and by night. There has been no further processing, although I did carefully remove all the Italian P.A. announcements, to make life easier for the editors during the sound montage.
    A useful bonus, too: you will find some ready-to-use backgrounds as “airfill” between the passing trains to create continuity in a longer scene, if need be. The ambient sounds are also great as a standalone!
