Here is my 4th of July fireworks in Seattle recording for 2017. This year probably has the best sound quality as electronic muscian Wobbly allowed me to use his Pro Tools rig to record. His gear consisted of a MacBook Pro laptop and a Focusrite 6i6 audio interface. I connected two of my very inexpensive electret capsule microphones through my Naiant Studio Electret to phantom power adapters. One microphone was placed through a west facing window in my living room and the other through the sliding glass door on the opposite side of the living room. This is the same microphone placement as in “4th of July Ambience 2016.”  In addition, a wire from the metal window frame where one of the microphones was placed was connected to the metal case of the Focusrite interface to prevent AC hum from getting to the microphone. This year for the first time I’m offering a 24 bit lossless flac file for your listening plaesure. This could be considered close to audiophile quality. I’m not calling it definite “audiophile” quality because the sampling rate is only at 44.1kHz.
