Direct mp3 download or play:  4th of July Ambience 2012

This is similar to  “4th of July Ambience 2011,” but it is probably the longest of any of my 4th of July recordings. I know it may be boring, and I won’t be upset if you don’t listen to all of it. Below are pictures of how I made this recording.

Audio Technica AT825 Stereo Microphone

Yamaha MG 10/2 Mixer

Alesis NanoCompressor

Recording Setup in VST Host
