REA_007 Brooks, Streams, and Waterfalls

It’s official, I’m in the final stages of finishing up an ambience library of Brooks, Streams, and Waterfalls. For the last several months, I’ve been traveling throughout upstate New York and Massachusetts to find interesting water-flows for the next Rabbit Ears Audio release. As you might have guessed with a name like “Brooks, Streams, and Waterfalls”, the library is going to feature a variety of Brooks, Streams and Waterfalls. I’m about 1 or 2 weeks away from release but I wanted to share one of my favorite recordings in the library so far.

This recording is of a small waterfall that is to the west of an extremely large gorge and waterfall I was recording earlier that day in Massachusetts.  I was on the hike back up to my car, slightly dejected, because the falls had swallowed up the back-cap of my Rycote, but my spirits were buoyed when I ran into this little stream and waterfall.

I love the contrast of the sound of the sharp splashes of water against the consistent flow.

You can hear a previous post that will also be included in the forthcoming library here.

Recording Geek Note: Rig consists of Schoeps CMC5′s setup for MS, with the MK4 as the mid. It was all tracked to a Sound Devices 744T at 24/96.
