Some recordings I did with the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Microphone. Rendered to binaural format (listen with headphones).
The first recording is a pair of crash symbols moved around the microphone. The second recording is from a power plant on the University of North Texas campus. I placed different objects over the capsule to filter out the power plant and highlight the objects’ resonant frequencies (mason jar, metal thermos, etc.).
Free Kontakt Instrument
Bowed Cymbals: 25 samples of various cymbals being bowed. Requires the free Kontakt Player.
A selection of samples I’ve recorded over the past few years.
Bağlama (Turkish stringed instrument) 16 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). A couple of normal plucked sounds, but mostly the samples were created with an Ebow and loosening the strings.
Prepared Classical Guitar 31 stereo samples (44.1kHz, 24bit). Created using a classical guitar and Allen wrench (no damage was done).
Electric Guitar 16 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). Some sounds from my Ibanez s770pb, making heavy use of the tremolo arm and Ebow.
Physical Modeled Flute 22 mono samples (44.1kHz, 16bit). Sounds are from a Max/MSP patch I built based around a physical modeled flute designed by Jon C. Nelson. *Warning* Some sounds are quite loud and harsh. I have plans to share the Max patch, however some cleaning up is needed…
Crystal Glasses 8 stereo samples (48kHz, 24bit). Performed by Jonathan Thompson in the UNT recording lab (shared with his permission).
Miscellaneous 17 stereo samples (44.1kHz, 24bit). Sounds created with some cardboard, brush, and Allen wrench.
