Recorded 250 meters from the runway at 90 degrees to the direction of the planes. This is the raw matrix recording (that is 2 sets of stereo mics mixed down to a single stereo file). I was using a Rode NT4 in blimp on mic-stand (see pic) and AT3032 stereo pair (mainly for the bass frequencies sitting in the boot of the car just to get them out of the wind - note I wasn't sitting on the sill when the recordings were made). Three passenger-jet takeoffs have been recorded, the first one was way louder than I was expecting so pegged the limiter in my MixPre and so sounds a little clipped in places, at about 57 sec you can hear I dropped the levels. The last two were captured at about the right levels. This recording has lots of bass, so if you have a sub-woofer, turn it on :) Recording chain - Rode NT4 (stereo mic)- Sound Devices MixPre - Edirol R44 (channels 1+2 24 bit @ 44.1 kHz). Audio Technica AT3032 (stereo mic pair) - Edirol R44 (channels 3+4 24 bit @ 44.1 kHz) - Mixed down to a stereo 44.1 kHz 16 bit WAV file.
