Sintra’s woods are famous for their mystique and peculiar flora selection, a result of its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and by men’s own ingenuity on planting foreign species over the course of multiple centuries, resulting in a location that’s green throughout the four seasons, attracting a wide array of bird species and constant weather changes, sometimes all in a single day.
Taking advantage of RØDE’s NT-SF1 ambisonic microphone, the woods were thoroughly explored, where each of the 25 audio files present in this library were recorded on different locations, resulting on multiple diverse atmospheres, where the predominant soundscapes are the beautiful early morning bird calls with smooth wind gusts and a couple of surprises happening throughout, courtesy of strange insects, angry ducks flying around, amongst other oddities.
These audio files are perfect for neutral springtime soundscapes and given the nature of ambisonics, you can easily convert these B Format files onto any desired format (like regular stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround) with the correct plug-in, like RØDE’s own SoundField, which happens to be free to download. These are raw recordings where little to no hum or hiss removal techniques were applied.
