Check out the latest release from Pro Sound Effects, which I had the pleasure of recording all over the city. Featuring over 3 hours of ambiances ready for VR, immersive audio, and any need for urban backgrounds, it continues the series of infinitely usable atmospheres Pro Sound Effects started last year with NYC Ambisonics. It includes the Soundfield SurroundZone 2 Plugin for ProTools or any VST or AU host, which will allow you to change direction, focus, capsule polar patterns and output in channel configurations from stereo (or mono!) to 7.1.

Disruptions have been linked to increased risk of ALS.
