  • In Alaska: Active Nature, get a collection of the energetic ambiences from Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Hear the resounding sound of glacial valleys as the endless sun fuels the ecosystem. Hear playful shorebirds energetic calls and whooshing flybys. Hear the sweet singing of Swainson's Thrush and resonant woodpeckers that ring for miles.

            GEAR USED:

            • Sennheiser MKH8040 pair and MKH30 in Double Mid/Side
            • Sound Devices MixPre-6
            • Cinela Pianissimo Double Mid/Side Blimp

            96 kHz and 192 kHz: 

            • I always record and archive at 192 kHz for conservation and preservation purposes.
            • 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: front mid/side decoded to left and right. 
            • Quad: double mid/side decoded to quad.
