How many employees are there at Nextale Field Recording and who are they?
For the moment, I'm alone to take care of Nextale Field Recording, but I hope to be able to surround myself in the near future with excellent collaborators !
To briefly introduce myself, my name is Samuel Monceau and I'm a sound engineer specializing in field recording.
A graduate of Musitechnic (Montreal) since 2016, I am the creator of Nextale Field Recording and the Nextale Foundation.
Concerning my work on the sound bank, I'm in charge of the recordings, but also of the 'cleaning' and editing of the sounds.
What is Nextale Foundation?
Nextale Foundation is a humanitarian association created in parallel with Nextale Field Recording, which aims to help the development of education and ecology in the world.
What does this have to do with Nextale Field Recording?
At the end of each month, NEXTALE Field Recording is committed to donating 25% of its monthly revenues to the NEXTALE Foundation to finance humanitarian actions concerning education and ecology.
What will the Nextale Foundation do with the money raised?
For the time being, once a year, the money accumulated within the Nextale Foundation will be donated to a charity dealing with education and/or ecology.
The longer-term goal for Nextale Foundation is to develop a more personal action, and to act directly in the field.
What equipment is used to make the recordings?
Portable recorders :
- Tascam DR100 MKIII
- Zoom H6 Handy Recorder
- Audio Technica BP4029
- Audio Technica BP4025
- PRO-X Sound Recording Dish Kit
What are the frequencies and bitrates of the recordings and in what formats are they available in the catalogue?
All sounds were recorded in 96kHz/24bit WAV, then put in 48kHz/24bit for editing.
The sounds in the catalogue are therefore available in 48kHz/24bit WAV but also in 48kHz 320kbit/s MP3, for a more modest size.

No, this is not planned for the next few years. The rates will remain the same with updates.
It is not excluded that one day we might consider re-evaluating our rates if our sound bank becomes really consistent and updates become more numerous, but for the moment we prefer to focus on the quality of the content produced and its accessibility.
