A special sound effect library from renowned sound designer and recordist Tim Nielsen: It's captured with a VC3 recorder, which turns electromagnetic frequencies into audible tones. The collection features weird statics, data and telemetry beeps, the EMF signatures of things such as rack mount gear, LCD screens, telephones and computers. A total of 178 minutes of sounds are included.

Here’s Tim’s story behind the Ether SFX library:

“When I was about 10 years old, my brother got a Shortwave radio for Christmas. I was immediately enthralled. When I later inherited it, after he lost interest, I would stay up late into the night, listening to the crazy static, telemetry and voices scattered across the Ether. To this day these sounds amaze me. I took on the small project of collecting some of the various sounds that radios make. Tuning AM, FM, but also going back to the Shortwave bands, Single and Upper Sideband.

Years ago I learned of a recorder called a VC3, that was designed to record the sound of the Aurora Borealis. It turns electromagnetic frequencies into audible tones, and it proved to be an amazing device, wandering around a variety of electronic gear, and ‘listening’ the electromagnetic waves that they put out. So collected here are weird statics, data and telemetry beeps, the EMF signatures of things such as rack mount gear, LCD screens, telephones, computers. I hope you will enjoy them.”
