There are some glaring problems with this sound recording. First off you said your phone died so you only got these few seconds of the sound
recorded. The problem there is that the sound ends before the recording so much so that I can hear you breathe out at the end. Then there is a
click/pop sound at the end of the recording. These pops usually occur when a segment of the clip is deleted but the person doing the deleting did not
use a fadeout tool at the end of the sound clip to make sure the waveform crossed over the dB zero point. These pops can also be made by bumping/
tapping or just moving the recording device. Now the first glaring flaw in this sound clip has evidence showing that a reverb effect was added to it.
The second glaring flaw is how uniform the sound is even with a variety of different pitched sounds in the recording.
If you look at this, you can see the waveform stacked on top of a spectrum view of the recording.
The yellow arrows point out very high frequency spikes in the recording which could be artifacts from splicing the recording.
The Green arrows point out three different times there where clicks/pops in the recording which also can be from splicing but I think all are from
just holding the phone and moving your hand a bit with the last one at the end being the loudest suggests that you where hitting the stop record
The blue arrow shows the reverb tail of the last click/pop sound.
Now if the last click/ pop sound was from not zeroing the end of the wave form to dB zero point or from hitting the stop record button it would be the
very ending of the recording and there would be no tail after. Again this means that a reverb effect was add to the recording after it was recorded
not during. If the phone just died there is also no way there would be any reverb tail even if there was some natural reverb from the environment,
the click/pop would of been the exact end of the recording.
The number one thing that tells me this is fake however is how flat the top of spectrum view is, with no spikes representing the sound of kids in the
background. With it being this way it means that the microphone was so close to the source of the sound that it was maxing out the microphones dB
level. Meaning if this sound was coming from the sky it would have to be so loud that everyone with in several miles would of heard it. Some my say
that the sound clip could of just been amplified but if that was the case then the kids voices still would of created a spike in the spectrum viewer.
For an example of what the kids voices should of looked like if the recording was unedited, circled in green. Also note how the top of spectrum view
(red/yellow/blue colored bits) is not completely flat on its top and that it has a fading out gradient in the colors.
