These thunderclaps are from a storm in Central Arizona, July, 1997. Thunderclap 1 (32 seconds, 340K) Thunderclap 2 (7 seconds, 77K) Thunderclap 3 (5 seconds, 108K)

The sound of rain is requested a lot - it's a nice, relaxing sound, so here you go - real Arizona rain (a rarity!) (266K)

Here is a rainstorm I mixed just for fun - the sounds are all real, I just added the thunder to the rain - it's 2:35 long, so I could only post it as an MP3. (233K)

I often get requests for water sounds - so here's a good one. This is 15 seconds of the Verde River of central Arizona, recorded 6/97. (161K)

Here is a short sample of surf - this was receorded at Bird Rock Beach, La Jolla, California. (MP3, 310K, 1:03)

I recorded these Shotgun shots while my son, Douglas, and I were target shooting. (124K) These shots are from a .22 rifle (includes ricochet sounds). (129K)

Here's one of the big diesel V-8 irrigation pumps they use to pump ground water to crops in Arizona - sounds kind of like a WWI airplane. (130K)

These are recordings of Elaine, Becky's and my 1999 Mazda Miata: Starting Up  Revving the Engine  Driving Away  Driving By  Horn Honks  Door Closing

Here is the bane of all nature recordists - an airplane. In this case, a Beechcraft Bonanza V-Tail (MP3, 1:03, 351K). Aircraft noise is an accepted fact of everyday life in this world - it pervades all natural soundscapes and destroys our natural quiet. When will we do something about this? Here's a Piper Seminole on climbout. (MP3, 235K, 59 sec.)

How about a little steam train? This is the Durango-Silverton narrow-gauge steam locomotive (537K, MP3) as it passes Hermosa Meadows, Colorado - a fun recording! To learn more about this wonderful train trip, see the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad website.

These two Cobra Helicopters flew right over the house at low altitude, 6/9/03. They were picked up by my River Forks CVX mic outside the office, recorded direct to hard drive through the sound card. Note that the birds just keep singing through all the commotion! (MP3, 1min 15 sec, 292K)
