I know that this is six years too late, but would you post something a little less processed? The noise cancelling and threshold filters are so dominant, that I'm struggling to see how I could use this for anything other than a layered, muted addition to an existing recording. Still, thanks for taking the initiative so long ago to make this site the great thing it has become.
I've had occasion to find the sound of "machinery starting up" and all I've ever found have been old-time elevators which are beautiful in their own right. I liked this sound simply for the opening two seconds of startup. I could turn the rest of it into a low-pitch rumble and throw all kinds of stuff on top. With a minute of sound, it's perfect for background and should be easy to loop if I want it longer.
So many wind recordings turn into artifacts of the recording equipment. You obviously took some effort to keep that from happening and it really shows. Nice recording. I wish I could find rain recordings that had this many ups and downs, calm and intense, yet crystal clear.
Nice work. Saving this for when I need a windy day.
I was just trying to describe this sound to a friend, and you captured the most incredible specimen! This is interference between the video card and the sound card in your computer. The video card is emitting electrical signals that should probably be contained, and the sound card isn't completely shielded, so the video card effort ends up in the audio signal. Beautiful and haunting.
Unbelievably beautiful. Takes me back to my early years spent in the land of ferocious winters and time in the wintry mountains in the middle of nowhere. Love it, love it, love it. Could listen to it forever. So purifying and revitalizing. How I envy the dessert monks. Cannot thank you enough. The ultimate beauty.
