Deciduous Forests

Audio Preview


New and fascinating: DECIDUOUS FORESTS is our eighth SFX library from our remarkable series of high quality nature recordings by Emmy-winner and nature recording genius Gordon Hempton. He has searched the globe for more than three decades to record nature at its most pristine.

DECIDUOUS FORESTS are intimate and harmonious spaces. Their sound character is much quieter than that of tropical forests – but nonetheless spectacular. Their loudness varies and changes with the seasons, as the angle of the arriving solar energy gradually impacts their character. Winter, spring, summer or fall – you’ll find what you need to create the whole acoustic range of different weather conditions and day times in this collection, e.g. dawn onsets with early birds, day birdsongs and insects, wind drips and frogs, passing flocks, rainy storm aftermath…

DECIDUOUS FORESTS is especially rich with songbird and insect ambiences. The sheer selection of birds included in these all-natural hardwood ambient recordings ranges from American Robin, Barred Owl and Darkeyed Junco to Ruffed Grouse, Tufted Titmouse, Whippoorwill and so many more. Whether talkative, rhythmic, active or relaxed, their bird songs shape the unique characteristic of these natural cathedrals as the echo or afterlife of the original sound has a pronounced forest acoustic. All of these outstanding sound files are recorded in North America (USA and Canada).

DECIDUOUS FORESTS offers you ample ingredients to assemble just the right combination of forest sounds to satisfy even the most demanding sound design. You shouldn’t miss any of the Quiet Planet Nature SFX libraries but if you are especially looking for spacious performance halls with few gorgeous performers (given due to the reduced species diversity & spacious forest structure) DECIDUOUS FORESTS needs to be your choice.

Become part of this tuneful sound experience with its more than 6.7 GB, more than 6.5 hrs and a total of 192 files of high-quality material. All sound files come with detailed content descriptions, have smart metadata with geographic location and indicate which animals are audible (SoundMiner® readable). Take hold of these nature treasures and let DECIDUOUS FORESTS become a part of your personal sound story today.
