Sennheiser MKH 60

A new apartment is a new opportunity to find new sounds to record. One of the best things about our new location is that the Docklands area tends to be very windy a lot of the time. While this will be terrible for recording most things outside it’s going to be great for recording wind samples. Our apartment gets a really cool whistling wind sound under the front door every time it’s windy. I certainly doesn’t attest very well to the quality of construction of the buildings down here, but it’s a great source of spooky wind sounds.
I will need to explore around the building and see if there are different wind noises in other locations. I also need to get down to the gym and record the treadmills and exercise bikes. Considering hardly anyone else uses the gym this will be a great chance to get some nice clean recordings.
