Field Recording – Castlepoint 2

Recording wind drafts approx 11pm – above photo was taken the next morning… The wind was hitting the front of the house and if I left the front slider door open a bit, and then opened the window the mics are pointed at a crack I ended up with this sound:


Then at half speed:

Then at quarter speed – I love the way the sub bass rolls/sweeps through the frequencies

A sidenote: I don’t know what algorithm soundcloud use to create their waveforms but it seems to crush all dynamic from the view, here is what the waveforms should look like (BTW have you noticed the waveforms in PT9.0.2 are much better? Apparently the waveforms are now 16 bit)

  1. Nice, Tim. Way too much overused wind tracks out there. I noticed the SoundCloud waveform display problems as well. Kind of sucks when showing off your demo reel through that site if the listener isn’t truly listening.

    Nice sounding wind moans and whistles there Tim!

    Just noticed the sound of me closing the front slider door a bit – see timed comment in waveform above… at quarter speed its a very interesting sound!

    Odd that the two downpitched waveforms are pretty much identical but completely different from the raw one.
