WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATURE ROOMTONE, QUIET NATURE, AND ACTIVE NATURE LIBRARIES?
- Nature Roomtones = natural soundscapes with zero fauna, sparse flora, and sparse water. Location non-specific because of zero wildlife.
- Quiet Nature = natural soundscapes with sparse fauna, sparse flora, and sparse water. Geographically linked to a place because of wildlife.
- Active Nature = active fauna (wildlife), flora (usually wind), and water

96 kHz and 192 kHz:
- I always record and archive at 192 kHz for conservation and preservation purposes. Sounds above 48 kHz are usually insects and bats.
- However, all sounds are delivered in 96 kHz unless there was useful frequency content present above 48 kHz. Then the audio is delivered at 192 kHz.
- In these ambiences, no useful frequency content was present above 48 kHz. So all sounds are delivered at the 96 kHz sampling rate.
STEREO AND QUAD FILES:
- Stereo: front mid/side decoded to left and right.
- Quad: double mid/side decoded to quad.
STEREO ONLY FILES:
- These recording were made with LOM Usi and do not include a quad version.
