The recordings recorded in MS (mid-side) mic. technique are provided with (coded X/Y) normal stereo files ready to use but there are separated Mid and Side recordings (mono channels) of each MS recording for greater freedom in advanced production (for those who wont to create their own stereo MS, further production). Other recordings are ready to use in stereo and few in mono.

All recordings are birds free (except those few noted). The recordings from “Nature” file are all free of (air) traffic sounds and noise pollution. Recordings are separated in folders by its caracter and place of rec., urban or nature, marked with numbers.

Recorded with high end recording equipment, in high resolution/sampling rate (24/96). Generally recordings are very long. Some shorter are loop ready and can be repeated easly. Metadata taged with detailed description of each recording, place and equipment/mic tech. (in broadcast wave file notes/description).
Maximum peak level on all recordings is -5 dBFS (for great dynamic range, great headroom), originally recorded with great headroom keeping in mind.
