Sounds Of The City

ModeAudio has released two new field recording sample sets - City Scenes and City Transport. Here's their description of each...

The city lives and breathes in City Scenes, our latest collection of detailed, meticulously captured ambient field recordings. This set of soundscapes lays out all the complexity and movement of everyday places in every one of its 6 recordings - from the racket of market traders packing down for the day and the hammering of construction work, to the hush of a library and the laughing of children playing in the park.

Listen as all the hustle and bustle of the city kicks off in City Transport, a collection of masterfully-recorded ambient sounds. Sonic detail and variety abounds in these 6 sound files, with everything from the clatter of underground train barriers, wailing police sirens, the distant rattle of canal lock gates, the slow whining of aeroplanes above and much more captured and presented for your musical enjoyment!

Pack Details:

  • 6 WAV field recordings each
  • ~10 minutes total file length
  • 100% royalty-free

Pricing and Availability:
£6 / $9.94 / €7.54 (per pack)
