Here is a little thunder I recorded on Sunday afternoon June 21, 2009. The first rumble was the loudest, and in spite of the record level on my Sony PCM-D50 being around the mid point (5 or 6), clipping was indicated when I transferred the file to Adobe Audition. I used “clip restore” to fix the distortion, which incidentally I couldn’t hear anyway. I know this thunder isn’t much compared to storms in the Midwest, but I thought it had kind of a nice ambience along with the other sounds around my house in Seattle. I’ve included a few photos of the sky conditions around the time of this recording as well.
A bit out of focus, maybe.
