Sorry Arnthor,
I forgot the link to a file made with the SSM.
I had expected that  your rig should do it even better.


Hello Arnthor!

I got disappointed when I heard your track. I had expected more, as I
presumed it was M/S.

My body doesn't react. I don't feel cold. I don't want to "protect
myself" from the wind. I miss space. I hear the storm "over there",
far away, no wind at the sides of me. I am not "there".
Are you sure that the M/S to stereo conversion is right?

Or perhaps that was the truth - that the rig was sheltered, looking
"over there, far away"?

I hear a hiss, very synchronized to the wind. That can be grass or
branches, but also the fake fur protecting the mic's? I had the same
problem once, and could solve it by rinsing it with softener!


Best wishes,
