The rotating earth plays its own set of instruments, with each season introducing a new symphonic palette. We’ve set out season-by-season to capture all the magical timbres of mother nature, recording the most interesting places full of life and beauty, attempting to embrace the sonic character of Earth as precisely as possible. With an unrivaled Scheops ORTF3D Surround Set, we’ve recorded the most high-quality sounds of summer imaginable – available in 3D Surround or Stereo.
The dry leaves cling onto the trees with their last life, playing nature’s sparkling chimes as the wind brushes through.
With the long days and soft birdsongs, choirs of insects and dusk songs of owls and coyotes,
summer is rich with its own vivid soundscapes. Now available in immersive 3D Surround.

The chamber winds of mother nature
A gathering chorus of crickets sings the epic poems of sweltering summer nights while the crisp leaves tinkle like chimes across the prairie’s lone trees. We’ve captured the sonic diversity of summer and all the hidden treasures it brings. Imagine how the wind sings around trees and cacti, a chorus of coyotes welcoming in a high plains moon, and a breeze blowing across lake waters
The summer nature of North America is caught perfectly in 3D using a Schoeps ORTF rig, taking the listener by hand into an entirely new season of sound.
Rich sounds of vast landscapes
This is a collection of pristine recordings of the summer world like you’ve never experienced before, with such clarity and detail that the listener can hear a distant tree swaying in a lonely field. All the sounds of nature perfectly balanced by our sound engineer, who chose the perfect places, free from air traffic and human noise pollution, for recording these perfect sonic treasures.

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.
