ZOOM H4N - Onboard Microphones

This recording was captured in the city of Orange in Orange county, California. This is located just below Los Angeles and less than a mile from Disneyland in Anaheim.

This is an EXTREMELY CLEAN recording of a sudden cloudburst that turned in to a torrential downpour on December 28, 2020. The peaks are all very close to 0db. I opened the sliding glass door to our balcony and placed my ZOOM H4N as close as possible to the rain without destroying the recorder. What resulted is an amazingly layered rain track. This is because rain can be heard striking multiple surfaces such as a tree, a metal table, the cement balcony, etc...

There is not much thunder (that's rare in this area) but if you need a few dramatic thunder claps they can be found at the following times one the file is downloaded. Note: that the rain decreases in intensity near the end.

8:09 - 9:37 - 10:31 - 11:20
