About the Sound Effects Library

Rain in the CityRain in the City is a sound effects library which included 70 files with more than 3 hours of recordings, from light rain to the real storm. All sounds were recorded in the city and the collection includes both indoor and outdoor ambience recordings and also objects with flowing rain water, including drain pipes and storm drains. Ambiences have recordings with a diffuse sound of the city (recorded from 9th floor) and also perspectives where being on the street with a lot of single rain drops.

Also special are recordings of rain hitting a car with different positions inside the vehicle.
