European Life – 3D Surround Ambiences
We wandered the European countryside to capture the unique flavors of the different small towns, villages, and suburbs.
Now Europe can be enjoyed from farmstead to cottage with this ambient sound effects collection that encompasses all the rural sound palettes from the North Sea to the Mediterranean. The sounds provide genuine atmospheres for each setting without any distractions in the foreground; perfect, countryside soundscapes for authentic audio layers in your production.
Varying from calm restaurants to small town cafes, rivers and creeks to traffic and streets, EUROPEAN LIFE contains an entire sonic palette of the European rural life. Recorded in 3D, you can choose the exact listening angle or use the stereo version (also included). EUROPEAN LIFE makes for an excellent addition to our TOWN & COUNTRY collection to broaden the agrarian scope, or as a companion to URBAN EUROPE to round out the sounds of the European continent.

Enter A New Era of Surround Sound FX Libraries
Suitable for any surround application, even and especially immersive audio like Auro 3D, Dolby Atmos, 360° Videos and VR
URBAN EUROPE is the fifth product of our famous new sound effect series 3D SURROUND. It continues a new era of surround sound FX libraries with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. 3D Surround delivers better results where conventional surround techniques reach their limits. This occurs especially, although not exclusively, in VR, where events must sound 100% convincing depending on the rotation and tilt of the user’s head. With our new 3D SURROUND series, you are ideally equipped for not only VR, but any other application that requires high-definition and crystal-clear surround sound.
What is so special about 3D Surround?
3D Surround has two enormous advantages over conventional surround sound. On the one hand, individual sound sources can be located much better and more clearly with 3D Surround. On the other hand, 3D Surround also reflects height differences much better. This results in a more extensive and much clearer sound image in a quality that cannot be achieved with conventional surround sound.
HIGH-PRECISION SOUND LOCATION
Conventional surround sound often provides a somewhat diffuse image of the sound source, making it hard to precisely pinpoint the direction where the sound is coming from and where it is moving to. 3D Surround draws a crystal-clear picture of the source recording for a complete sound experience.
THE 3RD DIMENSION – SUITED FOR VR & Dolby Atmos
3D Surround adds a height layer as a third dimension compared to regular surround. The sound not only reaches the listener’s ear from the side, but also from above. This results in a much better localization of the sound source and a much more immersive listening experience which makes it the perfect surround type for VR applications and Dolby Atmos.
RECORDED WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
Our 3D Surround libraries are recorded with the highly-acclaimed SCHOEPS ORTF-3D setup, a cuboid 8ch level/time difference ambience setup. The main benefit is an additional height layer compared to regular surround recording setups. It consists of 8 supercardioid microphones.
The height layer offers a much wider range of spatial sound effects and a more realistic three-dimensional reproduction. Therefore, it provides a clearer representation of spatial depth, a more natural surround impression, improved envelopment, and an authentic feel.
