An Hour Before Dawn – Northeast, Minneapolis

This mid-side stereo recording was made approximately an hour before dawn1 in Northeast, Minneapolis on July 9th, 2016. Other than instances such as bugs hitting the microphone blimp, there are few edits in the recording. I did roll off at 60 Hz; on my system this has a slight effect on the train sounds, the first of which appears around minute 20, but I felt the cut was beneficial in getting rid of some other boominess of the air. The train still sounds accurate in relation to where I was2.

  1. The recording begins around 4:30 AM; dawn was at 5:36 AM. 

  2. The train tracks are a couple blocks from where I was recording.
