    falling snow


    I'm looking for clean and long recordings (naturally evolving; not short looped sounds nor synths!) of falling snow (i.e. like rain). Snow falling on the trees, umbrella, hood, some sort of natural sounding surface; with no other trafic (no animals, human/mechanic activity in the background, wind, and so on). Best would be binaural (okm?) or some good equipment (like sony pcm-d50). Unfortunately I can't find quiet place here to take some snapshots.

    Nope. Eitther too short or used in the past, I'm familiar with oldies.

    used in the past

    I'm sorry, I must be unable to think (right now?). Can anybody explain to me how to interpret this as a reason against using a recording?

    @qubodup - would you create two individual soundscapes based on the same source? I'm working on a series of soundscapes, that are focused on varieties/tastes of natural sonic textures. Things you pointed - I either used in the past, or are too short to use, or failed in tests for possibility of use. Hope this explains my previous answer wink

    @klankbeeld - nice design and interesting soft sound - this one might work (although the background trafic is noticalbe; will need to check if it will be not over-emphasized during the process). Do you have more like that, with various hardnesses and unprocessed?

    Clean snowfall is the one of hardest things to get smile

    I don't know if this will help you, as it is mono, but anyway:

    I've tried to isolate the snowflake-on-umbrella sounds from Klankbeeld's Freesound #178150 ...
    http://www.freesound.org/people/Timbre/sounds/178155/ [it sounds much better when downloaded ]

    Also same treatment applied to corsica-s's Freesound #178154 ...
