AMB019 RAIN RHYTHMS, This library is a crossover between an ambiance library and a polyrhythmic pattern library! Selected from over 14 hours of multitrack recordings, captured during two days of Summer rain.

By strategically placing inverted metal trashcans below cracks in the clear light roof of the porch at the back of Tim Prebble’s house, the leaking drips perform very interesting rhythms.

Rain Rhythms

This unique library combines elements of an ambiance collection and a polyrhythmic pattern collection! Over 14 hours of multitrackers were chosen from over 14 hours of Summer rain recordings.

If you’re looking for an innovative way to add some musical flare to your next party, try using inverted metal trashcans as rain drums. The clear roof of your porch will allow the raindrops to fall directly into the cans, producing a variety of different sounds depending on their size and position.

By strategically positioning the cans beneath the roof, you can create a unique rhythm that is sure to impress your guests. And best of all, this musical arrangement is completely free! So next time it rains, be sure to take advantage of this natural phenomenon by turning your porch into a makeshift drum set.

The library is arranged chronologically, with 12 selections from my earliest recordings up to my most recent ones. Each selection is 5 minutes long and presents a different facet of my work with MKH8040 microphones.

The first recording captures the general ambiance of my work environment, while the second one features the MKH8050 inside a single trashcan, pounded out a beat. Each subsequent recording features a different sound or technique that I have explored with these versatile microphones.

As a result, the library provides a comprehensive overview of my work with MKH8040 microphones and is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring their potential. Thanks for listening!

Following that, there were 17 sequences of 5-minute selections recorded with three trashcan mics throughout the course of a full day’s work.

Each multitrack selection has the starting and ending BPM as well as the intensity and shift in speeds, making it easier to assess. Get AMB019 RAIN RHYTHMS today.
