About the Sound Effects Library

Urban_Crows_edit_600x600Urban Crows is a library full of interesting sounds of single crows and swarms. These proud birds deserve a lot more attention than they usually get.

They are amazingly intelligent, social and by no means aggressive or monotonous when it comes to their communication capabilities.

The library evolved throughout winter 2015/16 and was taken from the attic of a house surrounded by trees that were frequently visited by the crows as a safe place to stay overnight. So it was a great pleasure to record them arriving in the evenings as well as hearing them chatting in the early morning hours before they left to the city again.

All takes are recorded in Mid-Side stereo, with Sennheiser MKH-70 shotgun for a strong mid-signal and AKG-C394B for the ambience.
