2016 is almost over and it's been a pretty good year for field recording. On the first day of the year I was in Romania recording ice, snow, dead silent forest ambiences, gears and a whole lot of other stuff. Some of these sounds made it into two sound effects libraries which were pretty well received.
Later in the year I attended a couple of field recording workshops with Chris Watson, I recorded a WW2 training airplane with the help of Rob Brown and Joe Cavers, and I got a Double MS rig which I then used for recording ambiences in South Africa. I'm still going through the recordings I made there and I will compile them into at least two libraries in the near future.
I've also done many smaller recording sessions which resulted in a multitude of very varied sound recordings, from water dripping in various places to beaches and from various vehicles to hits and impacts. They come in very handy in my daily work as a sound designer but they're also quite an eclectic mix that can't be organized in libraries. Therefore I thought I'd share some of these as a freebie set to thank everyone who has ever purchased a library from me.
Happy Holidays and may the next year be even better than 2016!
