"I like these sword battles a lot. Yes, they would have been better in stereo, but that helps to isolate the sound as well with out so much distraction and hiss on the side channels. Yes, this one has some distortion, but it doesn't matter because if you isolate and remove solitary clangs you get some of the most amazing positional ambiance for giant lower volume sword fight backgrounds for war scenes in free audio books, movies, short films, and games. It can't be beaten free or otherwise, it's just simple and good, and just what you need in a background like that. Thanks so much!
Thanks, Sadiquecat! I was actually disappointed at the lack of good swordfighting sounds when I made my show called Battle Lords (www.battlelords.tv). So I made my own! Your film reminded me a lot of Battle Lords, stomping around in the woods and staging swordfights. I can't speak French, but I could still basically follow what was going on!
