The GENERAL AMBIENCE SERIES: A modular approach to the ambitious project become one of the largest and most versatile ambience sound effects libraries on the marked. High quality, detail, versatility and diversity will set this library apart from other products. You can expect monthly releases of small ambience packs in the future to keep the quality standards high and constantly grow the library over time.
This Urban City Ambience Sound Effects Library is part of the General Ambience Series by Systematic Sound. Urban City 02 extends the series with the first ambience library in 5.0 Surround. This time, I’ve used a Sennheiser MKH 8040-30 DMS system which has differences in tone and features a much more precise and stable image compared to the ORTF array used in Urban City vol. 01.
In this release you will find 82 brand-new high quality recordings that will complement the ones you own from vol. 01 to give you even more flexibility in post.
Obviously all kinds of traffic related ambiances are included as well as more quiet ones that feature all the nuances of urban air-tones, tonal hums and deep city rumbles. I’ve recorded in residential areas and city parks to capture peoples typical urban city life activities and well as the fast and busy life downtown in the center. The recordings have been made at different times of day and in different weather conditions (rain, wind, etc.).
To capture the acoustic properties of the urban environments, I placed the rig in the middle of huge empty squares, in narrow streets, recorded the typical slap back echos you typically get between high buildings. To even get more variety, I placed the rig in small and larges alleys (with trees and without) as well as in tiny corners, under canopies and even in underground passages.
This release is meant to complement Urban City vol. 01, rather than to replace it.
