Rainy Day

We don’t get much rain in Southern California but today it poured. Luckily I had my audio gear handy and I recorded a few high quality clips for your stormy productions.

Awesome stuff, added to my every growing collection of sound fx. (Best place for quick project sfx - http://www.freesound.org )
February 16th, 2009 @ 4:26 pm
Great stuff. Makes me need to go to the bathroom when I listen, though... :P
February 16th, 2009 @ 4:26 pm
Funny. Today in Portland, Oregon we had our first sun in months.
February 16th, 2009 @ 4:30 pm
How on earth did you record in such high quality... I wish I had that kind of equipment. I would go around recording everything
February 16th, 2009 @ 4:31 pm

Why you gotta be so awesome all the time?

Did you do something horrible in your youth and now you're trying to atone for it? If so, well done.

ROFL @juul:

who asks a guy in SoCal to record sounds of tornadoes? wow..... nice try though. (hint: there aren't any tornadoes on either coast of the US)
February 16th, 2009 @ 4:49 pm

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.

thank u so much man, you always surprise!
February 16th, 2009 @ 5:07 pm

February 16th, 2009 @ 5:09 pm
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!)
February 16th, 2009 @ 5:11 pm

Its pouring right now in Winchester
February 16th, 2009 @ 5:26 pm

February 16th, 2009 @ 5:47 pm

Those sounds are great. I'm interested in what you used to capture this audio as well, and how much you had to process it afterwards. Just for geekdoms sake of knowing. :)

February 17th, 2009 @ 7:16 am
Thanks for the RAIN sounds!!
February 17th, 2009 @ 7:32 am
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
February 17th, 2009 @ 7:41 am
in CA, rain is so rare, that people have to record it. :P
February 17th, 2009 @ 8:32 am

Andrew just read my mind. I was frantically searching my hard drive for Rain SFX for my reel - luckily I decided to check out the blog. Thanks Andrew.

February 18th, 2009 @ 2:34 pm
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?
February 18th, 2009 @ 5:36 pm
hi, Andrew.
Great stuff. we appreciate. about the sound capturing device, what do you really reccomend. How good is an H4 ZOOM mic. thanks again.
