This is a sound of crickets singing on a summernight in a town or in the suburbs. It's not directly recorded, but made of different sounds. I tried to make a realistic Hollywood night sound with crickets as they really sound in Southern California. So I found an easy on-line field guide of cricket species of the US. Then I checked some different common cricket species and saw a map of where they occur. Then I found out that this site, also had real recordings of those crickets occurring in Southern California or elsewhere. So I downloaded the right species and mixed them together and added a bit of background traffic and wind, and even a dog barking for more realism. It was actually really easy!!! So the result is a sound of the real cricket species that live in California. Perfect for hollywood films where night scenes are included!!! ALSO: When you use this for a film, soundtrack or something, I would very much like to see/hear it. Write a comment with a link here!Enjoy!!! :D I encourage you not to use this sound in projects and sounds that maybe are going to be sold due to copyright issues that could occur by doing so.
