Gain Walkers Release Residential Winter – An Ambisonics Sound Effects Library
Residential Winter – Ambisonics brings you 15 ambisonic residential atmospheres recorded during different times of a day in winter: early morning, morning, afternoon, evening and night. In these recordings you will hear birds chirping, traffic, sirens wailing in distance, dogs barking, cats meowing and rooster calls. The recordings done at night and in the early morning are very quiet due to the absence of traffic.
This Ambisonics sound effects library contains the original recordings in A-Format (no processing whatsoever) and in B-format(AmbiX). By using Harpex, 5.1 (LRCLfeLsRs) and stereo (ORTF) mixdowns have been also added. Note that the Lfe channel is mute. It hasn’t been removed to follow the SMPTE path order.
The Ambisonics version contains all the formats. Stereo version only includes the stereo files. This Soundcloud demo plays the stereo version.
