A collection of static, buzz, hum and related continuous sounds of flowing electricity in various big and small electronic devices.

The collection consists of 30 sounds, around a minute each. We recorded them at 96 kHz / 24 bit picking up current from various electronic devices, machines and gadgets.
For most sounds we used custom built coil microphones, in some cases they were designed and processed further (using software and our Eurorack Modular) to give them more character and depth. You are hearing electricity moving through circuits, data streams in mobile phones, laptops and hard disks as well as some good old 60 Hz hum from the trusty wall outlet. Further sound sources were a refrigerator, a fuse box, lamps, phones, monitors and other electronic devices.

Some preamps have been fried collecting those sounds – but it was well worth it: For any kind of electric activity, this sound collection will be great sound design source material.

Library features:
•Electronic hum & buzz
•Coil mic recordings
•Designed sounds
•27 minutes of audio
•30 files with descriptive filenames
•96 kHz / 24 bit WAV files
