Recording church bell sound effects at Hal Safi Church in Malta.
Malta is a very small island in the Mediterranean, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t much to see here. If you have been here in the past or wish to visit this island in the future, you will notice a large number of churches, chapels and cathedrals. Malta has 313 and the smaller island of Gozo has 46.
One evening I was able to visit the Hal Safi Parish Church. Thanks to a friend who lives in Malta and knows the priest, I was able to record the sound of the bells right next to the bell tower.
I knew it was going to be loud, and that’s where a 32-bit recorder really shines. The bell tower has four different bells. If you do not know which bell will strike next and how strong, you can quickly distort such audio files with incorrectly set gain levels. With a 32-bit recorder, I hardly had to worry about that. I used the Audio Technica 4025 as the microphone.
At the same time, I used the Zoom H8 together with two Sennheiser MKH 8040 and placed this setup in the courtyard under the bell tower.
The Zoom H8 is a 24-bit recorder. To make sure that I didn’t distort the audio files, I kept the gain lower on this device. I can always raise the gain during the editing process, but distorted audio is really hard to repair.
While I was up top, I keep worrying about the recordings below and if they would be clipping. However, when I reviewed the files at home, everything sounded great and the gain levels were set just right.
Recording church bells isn’t always easy due to so many environmental factors. I’m grateful that I was able to record these melodic church bell sounds from such a short distance.
Many thanks to Marcelle and the priest at the Hal Safi Parish Church.
The recording time was 5 pm and the reason was a feast for the Conversion of Saint Paul. In this church bell sound library you will find over 40 minutes of melodic church bells and several single hits.
