Thunderstorm 4 HD Pro These are some of the finest thunder sound effects I’ve ever recorded. During the last five years I set up my gear to record so many times I lost count. Not really knowing what these crazy North Idaho storms will produce in terms of aural goodness can be exciting and frustrating. When a good storm arrives, which usually means a system that brings lots of wind and rain, I cross my fingers that I can get at least something decent recorded. Five times out of ten it means I recorded nothing worth keeping.
Thunderstorm 5 HD Pro is the first collection of storms with some recorded at 32-Bit/96k. 32-Bit allowed me to not worry about the input gain for the most part. Thunder and lightning can really test your gear on how much gain it can accept before totally overloading and clipping. The storms would be very far away, soft and booming then out of the blue can produce incredible audio energy and level. The Zoom F3 and F8nPro handled these drastic level changes easily without me riding the input gain on the recorders. The final files are delivered at 24-Bit/96k
Multiple microphone setups were used during most of the storms. I have a few choice locations around the property that allow me to place microphones or hand held recorders such as the PCM D100 facing South, North, East and West. With these sets I was able to cover up to three locations at one time. I also experimented with MKH8040ST ORTF Quad setups using one location with the microphone rigs close together and another location with the microphone rigs set far apart.
