Home Sound Effects Hurricane Winds

Hurricane Winds


Hurricane Winds features some of the biggest and most violent winds hitting the Danish coastal area in many, many years. Both both interior and exterior recordings are included.

In hindsight, it's been crazy and stupid to be recording at some of these locations, but here they are – three years of unique storm recordings.

Key features of Hurricane Winds:

• 21 tracks of hurricane/storm recordings from a yachting and commercial harbor. Wind screaming as it flies through rigging, wires, masts etc. Plastic covers, structure, flags moving.

• 6 tracks of hurricane/storm in the city. Trees moving, wind howling, small debris passing.

• 2 tracks of storm in the forest. Trees creaking, as wind moves through tree tops.

• 9 tracks of interior recordings. Roof moving, draft from windows. Small debris hitting window.

Recording these storms has been a wild experience. With average winds at plus 38 meters per second, and gusts above 50 meters per second, standing in the middle of it all certainly got the adrenaline pumping. I really can not advise anyone to be out in weather like that, though!

An important note about the exterior sound recordings in this library:

Because of the extremely strong gusts appearing during a hurricane, the sound recordings have several points where the microphones had a hard time handling the gigantic pressure, and therefore a great deal of mic buffeting is going on. I have had the material tested out in the sound community, and have decided to keep the sounds as is, with no edits or cuts. Please consider the above, before purchasing the pack, and preview the files in the Soundcloud demo!

Sonic Salute is constantly striving to find new and unique sources to record, and make a big effort in getting in touch with the right people to get permission to get the recordings right.

The goal is to provide sound designers and editors with hard-to-get, quality sound effects and ambiences for their projects.

Sonic Salute’s libraries are recorded and edited in 96K / 24 bit. The delivery format is .wav stereo LR ,and or Mono/MS format, for versatility.

Each sound in the libraries has been carefully named and tagged for easy search in Soundminer etc.

Sonic Salute libraries have been packed in zip format. This means a smaller package to download, and at the same time, no compromises are made to the audio quality.
