  • City Life Slush And Wet Streets Play Track 34+ sounds included, 92 mins total $30 $20

    “Slush and Wet Streets” is a library that contains 34 tracks (92 minutes total) that are recorded in winter urban environments. You will hear sounds of passing cars and people on slush, wet or snow-covered streets.

    Atmospheres are recorded at different times of the day and night and at various locations. There are ambiences in the collection that track urban traffic at varying intensities, from an almost empty street with 1 or 2 pass by cars to busy traffic on a wet boulevard. Also, microphones are placed in different positions, from 2m to 30m from moving cars.

    You will encounter sounds of people who walk in slush and snow, voices and other sounds typical of the winter urban environment. The library was recorded in Sofia, Bulgaria. All files are meta-tagged in Soundminer.

    Gear used: Neumann KM184st, Rode NT4, Edirol R4pro.
