This is a windmill at daytime. I wend close to the body so you can hear the generators a little bit

    @Alan, it is a new one. I was standing a few meters away with my car the "wings" were moving above me.

    Was this a traditional windmill i.e. historic or a new turbien and how close were you when recorded?
    There is an underlying low pitch; is that the ineternal machinery? I have a project for a new (old style wiundmill to produec electricity and need to prove it makes litle noise. Can you help me? - Alan

    "did you protect somehow the microphone?"
    Yes, on the one hand i prefer omni - mics, which are less sensitive for wind in general. On the other hand I used a simple foam windshield and pulled socks over them. Furthermore the wind was not so strong as it sounds like - it was almost at midnight.

    ...I'm working in a piece that try to explain the dialog that now days exists between industry and nature.
    your file is good ! I know how difficult is to have a clear sound when you have all this air around.

    did you protect somehow the microphone?

    thank's from barcelona
