4-channel HQ record of a sudden and heavy thunderstrike without rain in the afternoon of a hot summerday.
The recording equipment was prepared for recording thunder, so there is no compression or gain reduction done by a limiter in the Zoom F8, means the whole dynamic is still there and will be audible by a adequate monitor/audio equipment. ;-)

This file can be used as a intro followed by my other track (link below), which has soft rain at the beginning, before the thunder comes... ;-

The 4 channels are recorded in IRT-cross technique (Microphone distance 25cm) so it is a 360° (4x90°) record.

    Holy smokes! Crystal clear thunder recording you made right there! I downloaded it for a little teaser I am working on, but then I went to your web site . . . what an amazing amount of effort you put in that. THANK YOU VERY MUCH for this! (seriously, it's the most amazing set of thunder sound recordings [I also downloader two others from you] I've ever heard!
