The Paris Ambisonics sound effects library is a collection of 73 immersive city ambience recordings from the streets, plazas, and parks of Paris, France. Use these versatile sounds to enliven your scenes with an authentic city atmosphere.

Recorded in 24-bit/96kHz with a Sennheiser AMBEO VR mic, Paris Ambisonics was captured at various locations throughout Paris including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Park and more. To capture these stunning ambiences, recordist Matt Snedecor traversed Paris with the goal of depicting its unique essence characterized by narrow streets, outdoor cafes, scooters and sirens. Be it bustling cab rides through dense boulevards or the resonant underbelly of the Arc de Triomphe, these authentic recordings embody the vibrant and dynamic spirit of Paris.

Delivered in both Ambisonic and stereo formats, each audio file is embedded with rich descriptions for quick intuitive search results. Detailed metadata includes coordinates and cross streets for maximum geographic clarity.

This library includes SurroundZone2 software by TSL Products that allows you to control the Ambisonics files by pointing “virtual microphones” any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. Unparalleled flexibility lets users match backgrounds with the specific setting of any scene and decode to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond. These recordings are also perfect for 3D Audio applications including VR and 360º video.
