Binaural recording of Pine forest ambiance, with birds singing (and fluttering near the mics!), wind on trees, and buzzing insects. Between 1 min and 1:30 an airplane overheads. This was done with a pair of Soundman OKM mics (covered with a DIY wind screen) placed at each side of a tree trunk, and plugged into an iRiver H120 recorder. The rig was then left unattended. The 16-bit original was high-pass filtered and most hiss from mics removed. Uncompressed sample also available (20071104.forest.04.binaural.wav). Great stereo image and presence, my favourite forest sample ever.

    Thank you for the upload - I've used this as part of the sound design for a friend's university animation project. She's using it for non-commercial and showreel purposes only.
