Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
Before heading to our flight to Lisbon, I recorded ambience at Stuttgart’s Airport Terminal 1. The main terminal is not huge however it does provide a nice reverb.
When I recorded these sounds I was quite visible and was facing the security area. Back then, I thought I needed to have my recorder on a tripod which made me stick out like a sore thumb! Within a few minutes, several police officers with machine guns approached me and asked what I was doing. I told them about my me recording sounds and one officer took my passport to double-check and came back a few minutes later. He told me recording is alright but I shouldn’t take photos.
After that, I learned my lesson and decided from then on to be less obvious which is why I purchased binaural microphones to use in similar situations.
A few years later we headed to Frankfurt airport for a layover and included several sound effects and ambience recorded from one of the largest airports in Europe to this library!
