Our planet has a fascinating sonic spectrum, and every season, nature offers us an impressive and multi-faceted sound composition. We have recorded the most interesting and iconic ambiences the only way that truly reflects the sonic character of Earth as precisely as possible: Using the unparalleled Schoeps ORTF3D Surround Set. Harness these first-rate sounds to shape your projects in the most authentic way possible, from the ground up in 3D Surround or Stereo.

Overwhelm the senses with budding life
A festival of birds welcomes the longer days, changing weather, and budding flowers. It is a truly sonically diverse time – a period of intense activity.
SEASONS OF EARTH – SPRING sets out to capture all the sonically diverse changes of the season, encapsulating the sounds of wind and rain in the meadows, forests, rivers, and lakes of North America.
Recorded in 3D using a Schoeps ORTF rig, this library transports any listener into nature. Closing their eyes, the listener can feel the damp wind on their cheeks and smell the fresh dew on the grass. Add that much needed sensual realism to your project.
Renew the vitality
Bring life to any scene with the right vivid ambience. Whether your project covers camping or hunting scenes, outdoor survival games, or strolls in the park, get the mood right with this collection of rainy days and birdsong. Each area was recorded in four stages: Pre-Dawn, Dawn, Morning, and Afternoon, when animals are most active in their habitats.
This library makes for the perfect outdoor soundscape to duck dialogue, music, or other sound effects. It also sounds incredible on its own, perfect for any nature show clips or segues.
Stereo version included
In addition to the full 3D Surround experience, the stereo version is included in your purchase of 3DS, with the same sound material and production-ready for more common formats.

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.
