(February 24th 2015, Mainz, Germany) – TROPICAL FORESTS is our fantastically vivid and seventh nature SFX library in the Quiet Planet series by Emmy-winner and Sound Tracker® Gordon Hempton.

He has searched the globe for more than three decades to record nature at its most pristine.

To compile this unique treasure of TROPICAL FORESTS, Hempton spared no effort to collect and compile the immense diversity of cloud forests, rain forests and oceanic forests of Ecuador, Brazil, Belize, Australia and Sri Lanka. TROPICAL FORESTS are loud and dense places – they receive large amounts of solar energy and consequently have the greatest number of species of any place on Earth. Species diversity always means sonic diversity, as wildlife communicate just as urgently as humans do. The high species diversity of these nature reserves translates into more complex ambiences sometimes becoming symphonic with even dramatic wildlife vocalizations. So this collection delivers a real powerhouse of opportunities: it comes with recordings which you would never have thought within your reach, from areas far remote and inaccessible. Equipped with custom materiel and the will to record the exceptional, Hempton submerged into the wild and came back with this absolutely impressing and outstanding sound collection.

The TROPICAL FORESTS library literally melts you into an exotic soundscape. You’ll find recordings of every time of the day, from dawn until dusk and throughout the whole night, with fine gradations to do justice to the ever-changing acoustic diversity of the forests. These ambience recordings include various tropical animals such as birds (solo and duet), insects, frogs, monkeys, owls, cicadas or eagles. As a matter of course, the library comprises different weather conditions like various wind levels, dry or wet, rainfall and even a full 1.5 hour recording of a tropical thunderstorm.

Whatever exotic adventure lies ahead of you, the TROPICAL FORESTS collection will suit your plans well. You shouldn’t miss any of the Quiet Planet SFX series, but if you are in special need of TROPICAL FORESTS, this library has to be your choice.
