Step into the essence of the wilderness with Forest Ambiences, a sound library that takes you on an auditory journey through the heart of Central European forests. Covering all four seasons as well as day and night, it’s your go-to resource for creating any forest soundcape you can imagine. From vibrant dawn choruses to heavy autumn storms and tranquil winter atmospheres, you’ll receive a package as diverse as nature itself.
The library focuses on ambience recordings, from bird and common forest atmos to wind through different types of trees and quiet forest backgrounds. Featured is a range of 40 bird species, including songbirds, woodpeckers, crows, ravens and owls. But it doesn’t stop at ambiences; also included are isolated elements like individual birds or creaking tree trunks for maximum versatility. To help you easily find the perfect sound, both English and Latin bird species names are embedded in the metadata, and each file name identifies the season, time of day and type of forest where the recording took place.
We journeyed across multiple national parks in Germany and Poland to capture this variety of nature sounds. Don’t miss our blog post, Recording the Forest’s Symphony, for a detailed behind-the-scenes look.
Well-organized sound libraries improve your workflow and save a lot of time. That’s why our sound effects are categorized according to the Universal Category System and embedded with rich descriptive metadata.
The UCS aims at a consistent categorization of sound effects, a uniform file name structure and easier maintenance of a sound effects library.
