I just got back from a trip where there was a 2-mile long railroad tunnel which part of a railroad track that was later made into a mountain-bike trail.
Needless to say I brought my recording equipment just for fun.
I get to the middle of the tunnel, the echo is about 15 seconds long and it's pretty silent in there bar a few distant trickles of water which you can eliminate by finding a dry spot in the tunnel.
I didn't have a project which needed this type of echo but what sort of generic things would you guys get if you had that opportunity?
I got some good bangs and impacts with the verb that sound great - actually they sound AWESOME when down-pitched,
but what sorts of other stuff would you guys try or record while down a 2-mile stretch of abandoned railway tunnel?
It sounded amazing and I have never really heard anything like it. Great experience if you ever get the chance.
