Rural Rain

Rural Rain is a unique collection of rain recordings in rural environments, far away from the noisy human world. More than two years getting slowly cooked and dozens of recordings discarded due to unwanted noises or ruined by too much rain have finally been worth the effort.

  • All recordings have been made in rural areas, whether that is the countryside or a country house. You will not find traffic, planes or people in any recording.
  • Several intensities are included. From some downpours and storms to the subtlely of a drop falling on leaves.
  • No wildlife either in any recording. If present, it has been cautiously edited out in RX.
  • Rain falling on surfaces such as leaves, bushes, dirt, mud, puddles, metal roofs, patio tiles, cars, concrete, plastic and so on.
  • Special focus on those rain sweeteners so hard to get, yet so nice to have in your soundscape; that is the sound of rain hitting a puddle, a leaf, a brick or even a helmet.
  • Some thunders are also included in the heaviest recordings as well as four distant ones rumbling with no rain.
  • Gear used: Sound Devices MixPre 6-II, Sennheiser 8040s in ORTF, Sennheiser 8040 & 30 in MS, Sony D100.
  • All files are in 96 kHz / 24 bit and come with embedded Soundminer metadata.
  • UCS Compatible Metadata embedded. Fields included CatID, Category, Subcategory, FX Name, Filename, Description, BWDescription, Library, RecType, Microphone, Designer, Manufacturer, Keywords.
