The sounds of our world are full of beauty and intrigue, with each season bringing out a new and profound sound composition. Using the unmatched Schoeps ORTF3D Surround Set, in SEASONS OF EARTH we aim to capture the Earth’s most fascinating and iconic ambiences in a manner that faithfully reproduces the planet’s unique sonic signature. Use these high-quality audio files to create fully immersive 3D Surround or Stereo environments from scratch.
Once the snow has melted and the flowers have begun to bloom,
Mother Nature overwhelms the senses with new sounds, colors, and experiences.
Entire orchestras of sound rise to their climax as animals wake and continue the cycle of life
while the skies open to pour out Earth’s nourishing rain.
EUROPEAN SPRING takes on a different dimension than our previous SPRING library,
which was recorded in environments throughout the United States.
EUROPEAN SPRING captures the outdoor atmosphere of Europe.
It contains different birds, frogs, and other wildlife captured in stunning detail.
In general, Europe is much more temperate, while the United States has a much more diverse palette.
Now available in immersive 3D Surround.

THE SOUNDS OF NATURE COME TO LIFE
The longer days, milder temperatures, and emerging flowers are celebrated by nature with a sonic feast. SEASONS OF EARTH – EUROPEAN SPRING captures all the musically diverse variations of the season, encompassing the orchestras of avians, chorus of frogs, and the divine instruments of nature like howling wind through highlands, a light rain drumming across fields of mustard seed, or roaring river flowing down the mountainside of the valleys of Kerry, Ireland.
The library was recorded in 3D using a Schoeps ORTF rig, taking listeners on a journey across the vanishing rural landscapes of Europe in full 360° audio. Listeners who close their eyes can feel the cool Northern breeze on their faces or the fresh, early morning smell of a German forest. Transport your audiences with the field crickets of the Black Forest that only sing in spring, or the wetlands of Sweden flocking with the new life of migratory birds that range across the continents and breed in the North. Give your work a touch of such a sensuous reality.
A SYMPHONY OF THE EUROPEAN WILD
Europe is an increasingly crowded continent, and escaping to an untouched nature is becoming more and more difficult. Our recordists have ventured out into the deep wilds with a sense of diligence and patience, capturing seemingly untouched sonic landscapes trapped in time.
Though this library does capture a few settled landscapes and farmsteads that characterize modern Europe, with a very occasional sheep bleat (labeled), it does seek to capture a completely isolated and only natural environment, to reflect the state of nature in a European spring.
STEREO VERSION INCLUDED
The stereo version, with the same sound content and production-ready audio formats, is included with the purchase of the 3D Surround set in addition to the complete 3D Surround experience.

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
Our sound effect series 3D SURROUND 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.
