About eight and a half minutes worth of summer evening ambience, with crickets and cicadas leading the evening songs. Nothing too eventful, but a nice finish to a great day.
Recorded at 48kHz, 24 bit. Stereo pair of Behringer C-2s (cardioid). The mics have an on-board 3-position switch, with labels "flat," "low-cut," and "-10dB." The switch was set in the -10dB position (whoops!). It is unclear if this position also activates the low-cut. Additionally, a 24dB/oct low-cut applied in Pro-Tools at 80Hz to clean up a slight wind ruffle.
Since it was late at night, and the rest of the family was in bed, I opened my window and placed the microphones (almost) right up against the screen. The A/C unit you can hear is directly below the window.
Around the 4:45 mark, the digital thermostat hit a programming mark and kicked the air conditioner back on. Roughly one minute later, I adjusted the thermostat to turn the unit back off.
Location: suburbs of Atlanta.
Free to use whenever and wherever! I'd be interested to hear/see where you use it!
