SOUND LIBRARIES

CITY LIFE: CENTRAL AMERICA

City Life: Central America is a collection of sounds captured across 3 Central American countries: Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

This library focus is on city atmosphere, especially in street/cover markets, pedestrian areas, parks, and many more.

The sounds captured in Mexico show a more “modern” Spanish atmosphere, compared to the more “traditional” Maya’s markets of Guatemala, where people speak a mix of Spanish and k’iche'(traditional Mayan language used in some parts of Guatemala)

For the 3 countries we visited a large amount of cities (x10) to capture the exceptional urban soundscapes of Central America.

The record duration are around 6:00 min per take. For the cities, we used a discreet setup: Sennheiser AMBEO and an AB stereo setup with x2 Sennheiser MKH 8040.

Each sound recording are located with GPS coordinates and full soundminer metadata.

The Sennheiser AMBEO is an ambisonic microphone, than can be decode in many differents formats (binaural, 7.1, 5.1, stéréo, mono, etc…) for decode it you can use the Harpex plugin or the free Soundfield/Rodes plugin.

-The Full sound bank (Stereo + Surround/Ambisonic) contains 71 sound takes record in 24/96khZ and decline in 267 files

-The stereo sound bank contains only the stereo files (119 files).
