AMB15 Pacific Northwest: Active Nature

Regular price $69.00 USD Sale price $41.40 USD

DESCRIPTION: 

  • In Pacific Northwest: Active Nature, get an expansive collection of active ambiences from the Hoh Rainforest, a temperate rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula in Olympic National Park. Hear lonely frogs croakings and syncopated drips from moss covered branches. Hear high twittering songbirds' joyous chirps twittering from canopy perches. Hear the soothing rush of the Hoh River from close and distant perspectives as it divides the valley and flows to the Pacific. Hear the Magical Dripping Tree, a majestic big-leaf maple covered head to toe in fog soaked moss. Hear massive drops from canopy mosses make rich plopping transients, pinging and enlivening the space of the old-growth forest
  • This library offers you a large collection of active nature sounds from one of the wettest forests in North America. Some places on the Olympic Peninsula get over 200 inches of precipitation per year and that abundance of moisture makes for a magical fern and moss filled ecosystem brimming with soothing ambiences.

KEY FEATURES: 

  • Recorded near the One Square Inch of Silence
  • Active ambiences with energetic wildlife, canopy moss drips, and close running water
  • Energetic twittering songbirds
  • Distant frogs croaking
  • Lush and lively moss drips from the Magical Dripping Tree
  • Normally, rain would be next to impossible to record rain in the middle of a forest. However, these moss drips enabled me to capture a rich rain-like density of drips when it wasn't actually raining!
  • This library is a portrait of the Hoh Rainforest. The rainforest is in a long river valley, so the distant soothing wash of the Hoh River can be heard in all recordings.

        Field Recording Values

        An astonishing number natural soundscapes are disappearing. I work to preserve as many as I can. 

        Mastering Rules

        I don't "photoshop" my nature sounds and present them as natural soundscapes. If I do remove something, it's marked in the metadata. Otherwise, it's a natural soundscape! Read more – here
