Los Angeles is well-known for having some of the largest and most traveled freeways in the United States. This library captures the traffic ambience on the massive freeways that run through the Greater L.A. area including: US-101 (Hollywood Freeway), I-405 (San Diego Freeway), I-5 (Golden State Freeway), I-10 (Santa Monica Freeway), I-110 (Harbor Freeway), SR-134 (Ventura Freeway), and SR-2 (Glendale Freeway).
Multiple perspectives were recorded, from close vehicle pass bys to distant traffic ambience captured from city parks, surrounding hillsides, tunnels and underpasses. Traffic types range from fast pass bys, to slow and congested traffic.
Sounds were captured with a Sanken CSS-5 Stereo Shotgun mic in both stereo mode (115 degree pickup area) and stereo wide mode (140 degree pickup area). The shotgun microphone was mounted in a full Rycote windshield kit and connected to a Sound Devices 702 recording at 192khz.
All sounds in this release are offered in stereo 24bit 96khz Broadcast Wave format. Files are in a zip file, which includes a PDF with metadata.
Upon purchase, you will receive an email with a link to instantly download the library.
