4-channel HQ record of a sudden and heavy thunderstrike (nearly) without rain in the afternoon of a hot summerday.
The recording equipment was prepared for recording thunder, so there is no distortion, no compression or (auto)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. ;-)
The sound was not edited or otherwise enhanced with effects.

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.

The Download-file is a PolyWAV.
If you need to split the file (e.g. to make a stereo file), you can use the easy to use

    Hey there :)
    I used your awesome recording in my new Halloween track.
    It's rare, to find those strikes without rain or wind noises (this is a really pretty one) :).
