Field Recording: Muwu Waves

This was my first recording with these new Oktava microphones. It will be interesting to hear how these sound in more outdoor environments as they typically sound best in my studio or indoors.

What I like about this recording is that you can hear the subtle sounds of the sand crackling as the tides wash back into the sea. It’s a sound I hadn’t really paid close attention too before capturing this recording. I think for next time I will try and get a pair of smaller mics closer to the sand to better capture that sound.

the gear:
