BROOKLYN, NY — Pro Sound Effects (prosoundeffects.com) has released “European Capitals,” a sound library featuring nearly 20 hours of surround urban ambience recordings from six major cities in Europe. Recorded by sound designer Ken Skoglund (The Duel, Fire With Fire), with the assistance from recordists Anna Bertmark and Eric Eklund, the “European Capitals” library takes listeners on an authentic sonic journey through Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, London, Stockholm and Berlin.
The collection of immersive atmospheres captures the essence of ordinary and iconic locations, from the Louvre museum in Paris to a small pub in Amsterdam and beyond. Delivered in both 5.1 surround and stereo, each sound file in “European Capitals” is embedded with descriptive metadata, including a photo from the exact recording location.
The breakdown of the 412 sounds from six cities is as follows: Berlin (83), Rome (74), London (69), Amsterdam (64), Stockholm (62) and Paris (60). File lengths average 2:54 and are provided in the 24-bit/48kHz broadcast .wav format. Each recording is 100 percent royalty free.
The European Capitals sound effects library is available now for $449 for a one-user lifetime license. Recording collections from individual cities are also available for $99 each for a one-user lifetime license. Pro Sound Effects offers the library as a download or on a hard drive.
