About the Sound Effects Library

Produced and recorded by Pro Sound Effects, NYC Ambisonics is a library of New York City ambiences recorded with a SoundField microphone.

The Ambisonics format allows sound editors and mixers to tweak “virtual microphones” in real time with included software. The Ambisonics recordings can be decoded to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond. The creative possibilities are endless!

“Very well recorded…especially the ride on the New York subway as well as the subway platform, and Chinatown is full of life.”

NYC Ambisonics features 53 high-quality B-format ambiences (nearly 7 hours total) and is bundled with SurroundZone2, software that allows you to point “virtual microphones” in any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. The library features 24-bit/96kHz Ambisonics recordings from all over New York City, including Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Pre-rendered stereo versions of all of the recordings are also included.

In addition to giving sound editors and mixers greater flexibility and control over the recordings, NYC Ambisonics is also perfect for 3D Audio applications including VR and 360º video.
