Home Sound Effects Ambisonic Overview: ALASKA

Ambisonic Overview: ALASKA


For this sound effects library, we traveled across Alaska, from the extreme north to the south coast to capture the spirit of these nordic and wild landscapes: Boreal forests, arctic and alpin tundras, glaciers, rivers, and lakes.

Here the soundscapes reflect the extreme weather conditions: Silent ambiances punctuated by the elements: Wind, snow, rain, serving the erosion.

In this wilderness, animals remain discreet. We had the chance to capture many birds with our microphones: Owls, ducks, seagulls, trumpeter swans, bald eagles, common ravens, migratory birds, and many other species – and a few other animals: Hoary marmots, arctic marmots, squirrels and moose.

-The sound bank contains 66 sound takes recorded in ambisonic at 24/96khZ (a total of 330 files).

here is an exemple of an ambisonic recording embeded in a 360° movie (go on youtube to listen the 360° sound) :
