"I listened to your Berlin collection and there are a lot of beautiful recordings, I'm happy to use them!"
, Sound Designer / Re-Recording Mixer,
"It's almost absurd that I, as a Berlin native, would buy a Berlin sound archive from a Swiss company. But after listening to the previews, I was instantly convinced. Avosound has always delivered high-quality recordings—and this massive, modern collection of easy-to-use Berlin at"

Shivering and sweating in Berlin

Shivering and sweating in Berlin

If you've ever been to Berlin in the winter, you will remember how bone-chillingly cold the winds blow through the streets. During this time of year, Berlin is a forlorn and gray place; but when spring arrives, Berlin blossoms into a pleasantly green city filled with parks and trees.

The City Soundscapes Berlin Sound Archive contains both seasons. The Berlin audio files were recorded in stages during winter 2014 and spring 2015.

Historical recordings from 2014

Yes, you have read right: historical recordings from the year 2014! We are particularly proud to present authentic 2014 recordings in High Definition from the Tegel airport in Berlin. Tegel will be closed down as soon as the new airport Schönefeld opens for business. Although the good people of Germany will not like to hear this, the new airport in Schönefeld is a national disaster and the main reason why Tegel is still operational (and this isn't about to change soon).

Be it as it may, the moment Schönefeld airport becomes operational, Tegel will be shut down and our recordings will gain in historical value.

Berlin Railway Stations and Subway

Berlin Railway Stations and Subway

Berlin has an excellent railway and subway network that encompasses the whole city. Parts of the railway network are overground, which lends a particular sonic quality to the whole city. For this reason, we visited several railway stations in Berlin and captured their unique sounds in our recordings. Now you too can visit the Friedrichstrasse station or Berlin's multi-storey main station. Or you can catch a ride on the s-train and subway or change trains at Hermannplatz and Potsdamer Platz or simply enjoy listening to the passing trains at the Berlin subway stations.

Soundminer Metadata

All Avosound sound archives come with extensive and precise metadata that can be read with administration software from Soundminer (as well as various others).

Genuine 5.1 Surround Sound Recordings

In order to deliver genuine 5.1 Surround Sound recordings, all Avosound Surround Sound atmospheres were recorded with high-end multi-channel equipment. High-quality microphones are the foundation for clean atmosphere tracks. Although recording 'street noise' might not seem like a very demanding task, the actual sound files consist of a multitude of delicate elements that require the same high-quality recording technology as more aggressive sounds (e.g. a rumbling street car). The recordings were made with Neumann microphones (KM 140 / KM120 in MS stereo configuration) as well as with classic DPA models from the 4000 series. Our recorder of choice is the tried and true Sound Devices 788T that always performs to the highest standards.

Alternative Formats in Stereo and Stereo MS

Similar to other Avosound City Soundscapes archives, City Soundscapes Berlin contains alternative sound formats for pure stereo applications. The stereo versions are neither mix-downs nor generated tracks, but true front channel tracks of the original 5.1. Surround Sound recordings. Because the sounds were recorded in MS stereo, the atmospheres are available in the popular MS stereo sound format, which is often used in audio post-production.
