About These Recordings
These recordings are mostly raw, unprocessed field or foley style recordings.
On occasions some clean up work may have been done on some recordings
but I try to do only what i feel is necessary.
Ambient recordings are mostly used for atmospheric background in audio or visual projects.
Raising the volume level too high on ambient recordings
may sometimes reveal a small amount of hiss
as a consequence of making the noise floor in the recording more audible.
For binaural recordings please use quality headphones when possible to experience the binaural effect
otherwise these recordings will play back as a normal stereo file when listened to on speakers.
It is also recommended to listen to binaural recordings
at a normal volume level to enhance the spatial effect of the recording.
FIELD / FOLEY RECORDINGS
Field / Foley is what I call foley style recordings
which are often times done in non studio environments ie: people’s houses etc.
These can be less than ideal situations
due to the higher possibility of background noise occurring ie. traffic etc.
Because of this, these recordings may have more clean up work applied to them than field recordings
but again I try to do only what i feel is necessary.
Some audio packs contain recordings that have been exported as stems,
allowing the user full control over the mixing and panning.
As these recordings are unprocessed (ie uncompressed)
there may be some periods of quiet audio and some moments of contrasting loud peaks,
so please keep this in mind before cranking up your speakers (or even worse, your headphones).
