Hey Andrew,
thanks for the sfx. Sounds awesome!

Like a few others, I'd love to know what audio gear you're using and what software/techniques you're using to clean them up - is it just a basic EQ or what?

Thank you for this awesome recording of the rain, I listened to them all and for a moment I felt as if I were there taking shelter from the rain...ok I'm gonna go P now...this is the effect these sounds have on the human body, good thing you didn't record a moaning woman right before that or I'd have a hard time to get a good aim and risk a flood

These sound files are very relaxing ANDREW, especially if you don't get much sleep.
'Sounds of Nature', THANKS.

Maybe a section, sounds to help you relax at VIDEOCOPILOT.NET,
in the future?

Thanks for the sfx, Andrew

LB - Sorry to hear about the drought & fires in Horesham, AU... I live near Horesham, UK and we've got more rain than we know what to do with - yet I still never think to record the damn stuff for my sfx! (It takes a man from sunny california to do it for me!)

We've been in a drought for 12 years and now the worst bush fires ever killing 189 people and rising in Victoria, Australia.

I've just about forgotten what rain sounds like.
Thanks Andrew for the reminder

PS. The small rural city of Horsham where I live in Australia had its worst bush fire destroying 8 houses the local golf club and one business. The temperature reached 117 F. and wind gust 50mph.
