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.

    Great that it's 10 minutes. It's long enough to use in a school-play as background-sound. Thank you very much! From the Netherlands.

    Thankyou so much... love it. My eyes go from speaker to speaker like I'm looking for the birds!

    Wow! This is one of the most amazing ambient records I've ever heard! Just closed my eyes and scent the forest.
    Thank you!
