Wind roaring through trees on Feb 28 2000 at night/early morning in Kent, south-east UK. This 20 minute section is one continuous take from a one hour recording originally used as an "ambience" track and for panto sound effects. For a quicker download see also windroar_constant_1m12s.wav for a short cut without major blusters or transient events or windroar_blackbird_8m41s.wav, recorded nearer dawn with occasional blackbird wake-up calls. The Microphones were on 1.5m stands inside 30cm cubic frames covered with lightweight acoustic grille fabric to stop wind-pop and the occasional drop of rain. Set about 10 metres from nearest tall trees - mainly Sycamore(leafless), a large North Atlantic Cedar and assorted stuff like Holly and Hawthorn. Sure SM57 mics - home built Mic amp - Pioneer CD Recorder.
Unprocessed apart from slight gain-riding at end for seamless looping.
