Recorded in 24-bit/96kHz with a SoundField SPS200 mic by Masato Ushijima, Tokyo Ambisonics was captured at diverse locations throughout the city including the Yamanote Line railway, Shuto Expressway, Keihin Industrial Region, Daiba Bayside Park & more. The library contains sounds that are unique to Tokyo in addition to some more general-purpose urban ambiences.
