Web store ModeAudio has released a new field recording collection, Elements (15 sounds, £14.00).
The new release includes a balance of 5 rain sound fx, 5 wind clips, and 5 water recordings. Captured at 44.1 kHz/24-bit, the WAV files provide a broad variety of textures and densities.
ModeAudio describes the collection quiet elegantly on their Web page:
The release is split into 5 recordings each placing rain, wind and water sounds at centre-stage. First off, the rain recordings detail light drops of water landing softly on grass, heavier sploshes of rain hitting a tarpaulin and the subtle drip-drop of water echoing down an empty underpass – in other words, a rich palette of dense, granular sound.
Next, the 5 wind recordings capture both gentle breezes and powerful gusts of air fluttering and ripping through squeaking woodland trees, as well as dusty currents rattling dry bushes amidst a distant chorus of crickets.
Finally, the water recordings bring streams, waterfalls, pools and lakes together in a choreography of murmuring trickles, gushing cascades and rolling waves – perfect for adding layers of constantly-shifting motion and commotion to your music.
You can get a sense of the interesting balance of atmospheres from the SoundCloud audio demo, below.
