Insects & Swarms Bali - Insects Sound Effects - Wings & Vibration

by freetousesounds



Hi Guys

I recorded these sound effects in Ubud, Bali November 2018!
Currently there thousands of insects flying around after sunset and we have a few lights around our house installed.

After we came home I saw hundreds of them in one of the lights flying around, falling back on the floor to make their way up again to the light.

What I did was, I used the Zoom H6 with the X/Y microphone to placed them directly under the light. Many of the bugs attacked the windjammer and walked around.
Then I used one pair of Jonas Gruskas USI Micro Pro omnis and attached them left and right into the light.

Now I was able to catch the sound of the wings and them flying around like crazy. Later I used some contact microphones but the sound wasn't intense enough to keep one track so I mixed them together.

I think its a very unique and cool sound and perfect for sound designers to create something really fun out of it!

Besides the sound of the swarm, you will listen to birds, bugs, chicken, frogs, dogs, airplanes, and motorbikes in the background. Because these microphones are in the light it created a very interesting hollow sound effect but listen for yourself. :)
Enjoy and Greetings from wherever I am in this world!
