PRAIRIES is the new and sixth SFX library high quality and amazing nature recordings. Prairies are among the most efficient bio-acoustic systems in the world for converting the sun’s energy into sound. Because the day is often windy (which interferes with clear sound propagation), species had to evolve a song structure for increased recognition under windy conditions which you’ll only find under these circumstances. This library supports your potential: with more than 5 GB exceeding 5 hrs and a total of 105 files of high-quality material, you’ll surely find what you need when your project calls for stunning spacious acoustic impressions of wide fields. The collected bio-acoustic treasure of PRAIRIES includes for instance various indigenous animals such as a wide spectrum of songful birds, buzzing insects, howling coyotes or chirping prairie-dogs. The PRAIRIES library naturally also comes with a generous range of wind recordings: gusting, blustering, softly blowing, breezing, roaring through the typical vegetation of this area. As special features, the library holds weather phenomenon recordings of grass fire and distant thunder rolling in.
The Soundminer Metadata has notes on species ID, when to use, and geographic location.
