I woke up pretty early the other morning and it was raining out (I love September in the Northwest), so I grabbed my DR-05, leaned it against the bedroom screen and let it run for an hour or so.
I distract rather easily from ambient sound, especially conversation, so I often reach for white noise or nature sounds to fill my ears while I work, but it bugs me not knowing where these random recordings come from. Who captured this? Where was it made? When? Why? So I figured I'd grab some local rainsound of my own, and it came out okay — good enough to fall asleep to on the couch over the weekend, while the kids were in the other room shuffling through Legos.
Please to enjoy, and happy napping.
