  • What happens when you get lucky while figuring out a Cassette Player that hasn’t run in years? You bring out an annoying motor whine that last long enough to capture and record it.

    In the 3rd installment of the Personal Cassette Player Collection, Personal Cassette Player_Pack 03, includes recordings of the name-sake, the brand name, the leader of the pack, the Sony Walkman FM/AM Player. Included in this pack are sounds of buttons, fast forwards, rewinds, sliders, switches, opens, close, motors, and the surprising motor whine. Over 1875 sounds packed into 54 files and 48 minutes with loads of different motor sounds!

    All recordings are metadata tagged using Basehead and Soundly, recorded at 24 Bit, 192kHz using the Sennheiser MKH8050, MKH30 microphone combo into a Sound Devices Mix Pre-6.

    Plug in those headphones, sit back, relax, and listen to your favorite classic cassette tapes.

  • KLAP Sound took a piano and tortured it, dismembered it and finally destroyed it—and recorded the whole process. For the making of this library, they used several tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, knives, and saws, as well as props like dirt, send, gravel, forks and other sharp objects. The results are raw sounds of foley with musical rings, harmonic tails and creepy vibes that are dry yet barely edited for your own enjoyment.

  • Sci-Fi Polarity Play Track 975 sounds included $90

    Polarity delivers more than 950 sounds of electricity, science and technology – captured in several locations around the world, from electricity museums to science labs. About 50% of the library is all about electricity, with various types of Jacob's Ladders, Tesla Coils, Ruhmkorff lamp and all sorts of impactful bursts of energy.

    Then we go through welders, plasma spheres, 3D printers, starting to cover a more broad technology theme – like old phones, telegraphs, dynamo wheels, rotary dials, whirling watchers, alarm, lab centrifuges, something scientists call a roller and a rocker, servo sounds, neon lights, a wimshurst machine and sparklers.

    Many sounds in this section were captured from vintage equipment, from a 1928's tram to old telephone switchboards, high voltage levers and control surfaces.

    All content was recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K, a couple of Sennheiser 8040 and a Neumann 81i, translating into final assets that have plenty of ultrasonic content, ready for the most extreme manipulation.

    Bonus: Two extra libraries included for free:
    This library also includes two additional releases from Mattia Cellotto - for free: Crunch Mode delivers 230 crunchy sounds made with a variety of vegetables, fresh bread, pizza crust and a selection of frozen goods. The Borax Experiment gets you 158 squishy, gory, slimy and gooey sounds.

  • Industrial Power Station Play Track 84 sounds included, 318 mins total $50

    Boilers, turbines, recycle pumps! Desulphurisation flues, electrostatic precipitators, and solar photovoltaic arrays! We don’t entirely know what these things do – but we know for certain they sound amazing!

    Last year we were granted access to one of the UK’s largest coal-fuelled power stations. With hard hats, steel toes, and a swag of mics we recorded every space and machine we could. The result is a highly comprehensive collection of industrial recordings that describe heavy 20th century industry.

    We’re talking about the archetypal power station too, not something dumbed down for 2020. This place was the real deal! Great big looming cooling towers, massive halls of turbine engines, coal mills, rumbling underground passages, rooms full of electrical gadgets, pumps of all types, oh and a coal train unloading a 100 ton hopper.  It’s a hell of a library.

    We recorded in a quad setup using a pair of Sanken CO-100ks, a pair of Sennheiser 8020s. We also had a Schoeps CMXY nearby getting an independent perspective. The recordings are versatile, pitch like crazy, and are useful for hundreds of applications.

    These power stations won’t be around much longer – so we’re glad we got a chance to record this beast of industry while we could.

    Enjoy!

    “There’s a lot of great stuff in here.  A nice variety of steadies for sci-fi and industrial use.  There’s also tracks with just the right amount of activity (not TOO busy).  Authentic scale is hard to fake so this is a great pack of sounds to have for large mechanical spaces.  Great steam/air releases too, and a large servo motor startup that is a real gem.” -Dave Farmer

    “It is always a handy to have a library from these guys.  Well recorded and full of interest, Power Station is a great library and full of never before heard sounds. It’s sometimes difficult to visualise a space from a recording, but definitely not with this collection. They’re huge and real. Most of the time drones and tones can feel synthetic, but they have really managed to capture a true real industrial soundscape. They are definitely colossal.” – Ben Meechan

  • Quadcopter Drone CX10 is a small radio controlled toy with a feisty character that could be described as a robotic version of an angry bee.

    This library covers in detail everything you can do with this little neat quadcopter drone. You get sounds of acceleration, deceleration, steady engine fly loops of various speeds, engine revs, fast turns, ground hoppings and takeoffs. In case you need them I also recorded collisions and landings on various surfaces like carpet, metal, rock, plastic etc. Surprisingly these sounds are quite suitable for user interface sounds too.

    The steady engine fly loop sounds are really useful when you want to create your own flyby / passby sounds. I can also imagine using this library to add some unique flavour to winged insecty characters in a game or just to richen otherwise bland engine sounds.

    The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools.

    You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • Gone is the era of the typewriter, when the cacophony of countless typebars striking the platen could be heard emanating from every office building, but with SkewSound’s QWERTY Sound Library, you can recreate those days. We used an electro-mechanical typewriter from the 1970s to create this library.

    This allowed us to get some unique sounds that simply can’t be created with an older, mechanical typewriter.

    In this library you’ll find some stellar machine gun-like mechanical sounds, impacts, sweeteners, motor hums, and more mechanical switch and button effects than you’ll know what to do with.

    QWERTY highlights:

    • Recorded, edited, and delivered in full 96kHz/24bit high definition audio
    • Every performance was multi-mic’d, providing you with a greater range of tonal qualities to modify to your hearts content
    • Over 35 minutes of audio

  • Remington Rand is an early American typewriter and adding machine manufacturer formed in 1927. The last Remington Rand branded business machine rolled off the line in 1958. The adding machine that we acquired was an electric version in good working condition. Remington Rand also manufactured things like shavers, pistols and calculators.

    Our adding machine has a big electronic mechanism for the summing function and nice heavy clacks for the regular keys. It also had some very sticky metal plates that would occasionally get stuck and then pop loose with a big resonant ringing sound. This specific defect made an incredibly interesting sound that is very unique to this specific machine’s wear and tear.

    As with the Burroughs Protectograph we miked it with three different mono perspectives to produce three very different sounds on each move. We used Schoeps CMC6/MK4 mics on the front and back and an AT4050 for the wide perspective in mono. The close perspectives are great for big thick clicks and mechanisms, and the wide is excellent for use in one offs for bgfx tracks.

     

    Key features for Remington Rand Adding Machine

    • 3 mic perspectives of each performance
    • 9 unique articulation groups
    • 10 + performances per articulation
    • 11 Kontakt .nki files (unlocked)
    • .nki files require full version of NI Kontakt 4 or higher
    • photographs and video stills

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.
