It's a long field recording of an intense thunderstorm that took place in Warsaw, Polad 2012-06-21 around 4 AM.
You can hear a lot of thunder strikes from all directions, some rain noise in the background, sometimes a car passing by on a wet road somewhere beneath. Also after the closest strikes, some car alarms are becoming audible too.
One strike peaked at 0dB with minimum gain used. I got clip indicator lit on one channel.
Some thunders are so close and clean, they sound like a giant electrig gas igniter.
I've never had so many this good thunder shots recorded. This file is a gold mine for all your thunderstorm sound needs.
I'm uploading raw recording. Not edited and not normalized. It's only converted to FLAC for saving on file size. The quality's there :)
The recording starts in a middle of the thunderstorm, whitch is slowly starting to fade away.
I recorded this from a high flat's balcony using a hand-held Zoom H2's rear stereo XY mics (120 deg. of spread). Using no dynamics processor of filter, with mic gain set to low (minimum).
Originally it was a stereo 48-kHz, 24-bit WAV file. Examined and converted to 24-bit FLAC using Audacity.
I hope you'll enjoy this recording as much as I did making it.
