Field Recording in Iceland

I was recently in Iceland and, while I brought my Sony PCM m10 with me, I took the opportunity to capture some of its sonic atmospheres. Here are the results.

Similarly to my recordings from Scotland, only a tiny amount of low frequencies have been removed to get rid of some wind noise. No other processing has been applied.







How to make the most of Reaper as a Sound Design tool – Part 1: Getting Started

I have recently contributed to the A Sound Effect Blog with a 2 part series article on how to make the most of Reaper as a sound design tool.

The first article looks into getting started using Reaper and the initial set up. You can find it here.

The second will be up in about a week’s time and will cover more of the workflow and some good habits to be taken from the start. Keep an eye out!


Field Recording fun in Scotland

I just spent a long weekend in Scotland, on the Isle of Arran, for some camping and hiking and enjoying the beautiful July weather.

I took the opportunity to do some field recordings – here are some of the results 🙂

My equipment:

A very small amount of filtering has been applied to those recordings to remove some low frequencies (Scotland can get pretty windy), but other than that no processing has been done.









About these last 2: I was roughly at the same location, the first one I recorded while facing the waves crashing on the beach, the second i recorded while facing the opposite direction. I think the second is interesting if you’d be looking to have a nice beach waves background ambiance while not really focusing on them.
