Here’s 144 minutes of composite German construction site ambiences. It comes with all the hammering, sawing, digging, drilling, some yelling workers, squeaky crawling excavators and loud jack hammers you’d expect. All edited, cleaned, mixed and packed with metadata.
The ambiences were mostly recorded with a Sound Devices 744t and a Sound Devices Mix-PreD through a Beyerdynamic MC930 ORTF setup and RODE NTG-4 microphone, and some ambiences were tweaked to seamless loop from end to start. All sounds were recorded over weeks at several different construction site around Stuttgart / Germany – from very small sites recorded close up to huge construction sites with lots different typical working sounds.
