I want to share another discovery in my studio.
I recently bought a used camera lens of e-bay to use with my digital camera.
It was sent to me in a small cardboard box with a ton of bubble wrapping inside of it.
I took the lens out to examine it, and stuffed the bubble wrap back inside the box.
I turned my back to the box and examined the lens.
I suddenly heard the sound of a crackling fire behind me. You know, one of those sappy log camp fires with loud snaps and pops. It's caused by the natural unfolding of the paper after it's been stuffed in a box - it sounds surprisingly realistic.
I instantly ran inside the record room and recorded it.
I'll post up a sample tomorrow.
