Urban Air is a collection of long duration / ready to use / surround urban backgrounds.
This is our first surround ambience library, it has been recorded across different cities with various microphones setup ( LCR ORTF / QUAD / 5.0 ) and then carefully collected and edited into 5.0 surround tracks.
You’ll find various moods and sonic characteristics including : downtown, suburban, industrial, small towns, quiet, loud and annoying traffic beds, wet city, side streets, parks, wide city squares, diffuse and distant urban elements, clean air tones or dirty gritty city noise …
The duration of the tracks varies between 02m 30s for the shortest and more than 08 minutes with the vast majority lasting around 04-05 minutes, so long scenes shouldn’t be a problem. Also, some sounds include markers highlighting (un)interesting sounds and events.
– 99 files / 33 sounds
– 12.92 GB (uncompressed)
– Total length : 146 minutess

For more convenience, 2 versions are available :– splitted in 3 separate files : C / LR / LsRs , this way you can easily use the stereo files if you don’t need surround.
I mastered these sounds in a controlled sound editing room calibrated at 79 dB SPL, volume wise I tried to find the middle ground between a ” background level ” and being able to hear the sounds when you search through them, don’t hesitate to let me know if you think I totally missed the point here.
All the sounds are in high resolution 96 kHz / 24 bits and most importantly embedded with exhaustive metadata including a detailed description.
Compatible with Soundminer, Basehead, etc…
Fantastic library, long static ambiances perfect for creating distant and close urban atmospheres.
Thank you for your feedback.
