Wet Traffic is one of those libraries that I wish I had dozens of times myself in recent years…
Traffic in a rainy city!!
While recording this library I became obsessed with my barometer & waited for opportunities to cleanly capture traffic on wet roads immediately after rain. I’ve selected the best material from over ten hours of recordings – many options & densities of traffic are provided, from busy 8am rush hour on a grey Wednesday to sparse passes late on a Sunday night, wet motorway traffic from multiple perspectives (recorded from overbridge, from the side of the motorway, closeup fast passes and wide perspective) as well as single passbys on wet suburban roads. Also included is a compile of bus & track passes, a little boy racer passby selection and a collection of random oddities (horns, brake squeaks etc)
Recorded 4 channel with tight/coherent stereo via ORTF MKH8040s plus wider pointillistic MKH70s (to capture longer approach & departure) This library will help bring your ambiences alive for those evocative scenes set in a rainy city….
