Quiet night ambiance. An Owl (Otus scops, Eurasian Scops Owl)can be heard all along the sample and small cracklings from trees. In addition, one dog screams at 1 min, a jet passes high above, and a vehicle starts roaring at 2:30 (the radio inside the car can be heard as it moves away). When the vehicle vanishes you hear only the Owl. Sennheiser ME66+MKH30 into Shure FP24, into iRiver H320. Decoded to MS stereo with Voxengo free VST plugin. I had to perform a light hiss reduction on this sample in order to remove microphone (ME66) selfnoise, as it was spoiling the effect to a great extent. Recorded in the surroundings of Bernabe House (Carcabuey, S Spain), a naturally reverberant place because of a neighbouring cliff.

    @ Smith554 one part of me agrees with you, yet another says; "well... that's what happened that night.'

    I don't know that the dog would be in pain. My dog makes sounds like that if you accidentally trip over it and scare it. It might be a sound someone is looking for, for a video game or such. I think it's quite an interesting recording, all up. You don't get sounds like that where I am.

    The dog yelping has completely turned me off from this recording. It obviously was in trouble... Why would anyone want to hear that?
