What we recorded
Blending in with the undisturbed native environment, Gordon Hempton once more managed to acquire an astonishing level of variety in his recordings, stretching across multiple seasons, daytimes and weather settings: Whether it be the spine-chilling howl of a wolf pack haunting through the night, the late summer call of a pacific chorus frog, the enormous creak of a mighty tree trunk bending or the forest intoning its own characteristic symphony with the wind brushing through pine needles – CONIFEROUS FORESTS delivers its vast pool of resources with maximum authenticity and abundance.
What's so special about this library?
Ancient CONIFEROUS FORESTS are treasured especially for their acoustic purity. The general absence of leaves rustling, fewer songbirds, and a more tempered variety of species amount to an even lower noise level than in the more lively DECIDUOUS FORESTS or TROPICAL FORESTS and incredibly preservative sound propagation over long distances. If you are looking for a more grounded, purer, northward ambience and SFX collection to draw from, CONIFEROUS FORESTS is indispensable.
