Remington Rand Adding Machine

$24

0 out of 5

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.

echo | collective

echo | collective is the label under which the guys at Dallas Audio Post release sample libraries and Kontakt instruments for use in film, music and games.

Our need for unique and interesting sounds has us constantly updating our libraries and databases. We love making noises, bending sounds and recontextualizing things into shapes and forms they were never really meant to take.

Under echo | collective our custom sounds are available to the world at large. Feel free to take a look around, listen to the demos, watch the videos and then pick up some sounds. You can follow us on twitter @echocollective
