WIND DRAFTS are incredibly useful as source material for creating spooky, haunted ambiances and bone-chilling, desolate winds, as well as components for whooshes, movement, atonal design, and transitions. When examined and manipulated in detail these naturally modulated recordings reveal the unique frequency and volume envelopes, at times complex and powerful, at other times almost mournful or otherworldly.
The first two wind draft recording locations were naturally occurring: staying in an old bach at Patea Tim from HISSandaROAR noticed how the log burner chimney was moaning in the wind, so he captured it with a pair of contact mics as well as the MKH8040 pair. The second location was in Papamoa: as Cyclone Gita pounded the coast, the beach house Tim was staying in literally shook, as the wind whistled around the exterior doors.
This new HISSandaROAR Library AMB016 WIND DRAFT represents a unique 10.8GB collection of new recordings, perfect for realism as well as supernatural and more stylized applications.
