Bonus 53: Mix – Beach Whispers WITH Ocean Sounds

I had an epiphany last week.

If I recorded beach whispers without ocean sounds, and I recorded ocean sounds without beach whispers – then why not mix them together?!

Yessa, I mixed together the Beach Whispers in Bonus 51 with the Pure Ocean Sounds in Bonus 52 to create…(drum roll please)…Beach Whispers With Ocean Sounds!

Can you tell that I was really pleased with myself that I thought of this?  I know, it is sort of obvious but I have low expectations of my coconut brain.

I hope you enjoy it, Harris : )

Bonus 52: Pure Ocean Sounds

This is a 1 hour 17 minute  recording of just ocean sounds (no whispering).    I recorded this on the same day and at the same beach as “Bonus 51: Busy Beach – vacation rambles.”

I knew that during the recording of my whispers on the beach that I was too far from the ocean for the ocean sounds to be clearly recorded.

So l waited for later in the day for the tide to come in and then I recorded just the sounds of the ocean.  There were still some adults and kids squawking, talking, and yelling – but I edited all that out so you can have a calm and pure ocean sound  experience.

I hope you enjoy this, Harris : )

P.S. Here are more 1 Hour (and 8 Hour) nature sounds that I have recorded, and they sound even better because I used much higher quality microphones: https://www.patreon.com/sleepwithsilk

Bonus 51: Busy Beach – vacation rambles

My first beach whispering on a busy beach.  You will hear my whispering, ocean sounds, and beach sounds.

My whispering: I recorded this while I was on vacation last week so I am mostly whispering about my vacation travels and activities during that week.    Mundane stuff that you can try to visualize and fall asleep to.

Ocean sounds: I was far from the water so it sounds mostly likely white noise.  You won’t hear distinct waves or surf but you will hear the gentle wind around me.

Beach sounds: I recorded this with two microphones, so these sounds should be in stereo and sound 3-D (best heard with headphones).  My favorite background sounds in this recording are the children yelling and playing – made me smile when I listened to it during editing.  You will also hear adults talking on cell phones, adults talking to each other, the tok-tok-tok sounds of beach paddle ball, feet running or walking in the sand around me,   several airplanes flying overhead, and near the end someone starts playing music in the distance.
