Vibration is 40 minutes/676 MB of vibrating, rattling and resonating metal and plastic panels in 96 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using contact microphones.
This is a collection of sounds that rattle, clatter, vibrate, buzz, hum and oscillate. Think huge cargo vehicles, passenger ferries or mechanical installations with loose metal panels, resonating generators and such. The vibrating was done with a 100 watt tactile transducer (like a bass speaker with no cone) hooked up to an amplifier, and getting it’s signal from a modular synth. Frequencies from LFO’s and VCO’s were mixed, to get interesting vibrations in both sub-audio and audio range.
Holding the transducer by hand allowed me to move it around and find the sweet spots on the various objects (a steel filing cabinet, a steel suitcase and a spring reverb tank come to mind). Depending on the amplitude of the input signal, different sounds would emerge from the same waveforms. Now and again, the transducer would get too hot to handle, and on one or two occasions, the thermo-relay on the amp would kick in. Excitement in the studio!

The library is perfect for use in any project that may need vinyl records to give it that vintage feel! Additionally these samples are great to use in granular processing, music, or to add subtle layers to a burning fire.
