Turning Japanese

Smackheads

This library contains an eclectic collection of sounds sourced on a recent trip to Japan. It's an auditory sampler of the beauty and stillness as well as the chaos and busyness of Japan, from elevator rides to fish markets, temples, busy streets and mountain streams.

You can preview a selection of the library and full track listing below. The library is 826MB and includes 37 stereo 24bit 48kHz .wav files. 

All tracks were record with a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH 8040's and a Sound Devices 633.

Enjoy.
