Barcelona Traffic Day is the first part of the two libraries dedicated to traffic in Barcelona. Here you will find a wide collection of recordings of the city’s traffic made exclusively during the day. The second part, Barcelona Traffic Night, contains recordings made during the night.
The library is a collection of traffic ambiences of various characteristics, recorded in different areas and types of roads in the city. From the downtown to more peripheral areas, including intersections, roundabouts, fast lanes, busy streets, traffic jams with claxons and quieter situations, but always focusing on the sound of moving vehicles in the city.
All sound perspectives are covered, from distant and diffuse traffic, recordings made at medium distance, to very close emplacements at street level. Some of the files have been recorded from bridges, top of buildings or balconies trying to avoid the proximity of pedestrians and closer elements other than pure traffic. You will also find a few traffic ambiences with rain and some others that include pedestrians and other urban elements.
The files have been carefully embedded with metadata and tagged with markers to facilitate the search for items such as claxons or ambulance’s sirens. They also include the coordinates of the recording spots.
The library has been recorded at 96kHz / 24 bit with a Double MS kit from Schoeps, and dematrixed with the Schoeps Double MS plug in to obtain the 5.0 files. The stereo version of the library is a downmix of the 5.0 files (Size 8.42 GB). The recordings are from 2018 and 2020. It contains 50 files ranging from 1 to 8 minutes, with a total duration of 231 minutes.
