I'm doing some sound design for a scene that takes place outside in front of a farmhouse, but all of the sound for it is being recorded indoors. I've got the outdoor ambiance sounds covered just fine, but the ambient reverb/delay is where I'm stumped.
Even though this is in a big open area, I know it's not just echoless and dead, because I know that if I shout in a field rather than in a padded room, it sounds way different. There is some natural echo (which has me leaning toward using a delay), but I'm having a hell of a time getting the settings right. Part of it is EQ, because I know that the echoed sounds would lose a lot of the high frequencies from the source, and I know it shoud be a longer delay, but everything I come up with sounds like it's happening in a cave rather than in a field.
