Luftrum has announced the release of Free Field Recordings, a sound library released in aid of Save the Children.

They are a mix of 16Bit and 24Bit wav files containing a broad range of various recordings from ocean waves to forest sounds, birds, gardenscapes, airport atmospheres, binaural recordings (make sure to listen with headphones for full effect!) and experiments with hydrophones, coil pickups and contact mics such as the rumble of a windmill, the circuit board of an iPhone and the footsteps of ants on a contact mic. Perfect as atmospheric background, sound effect, layered texture or otherwise.

Recorded using Sound Devices 702, DPA-4060, JrF contacts mics, hydrophones and coil pickups. Zoom H2 and Sony CS-10EM Binaural Microphones for older recordings.

The sound library is available to download under the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY 3.0) license.

A user license is also available for purchase at a “pay-what-you-want” price. All proceeds from the library will be donated to Save The Children.
