Free Sound Of The Week 02

Free Sound Of The Week is a new weekly series here on AGZ, once a week I’m going to share a couple sound samples I’ve recorded or created and manipulated.

These samples we’ll call Household Drones. Big rumbly low frequency drones. They were created by attaching a contact microphone to various home appliances – air conditioner, large room fan, inside a freezer and refrigerator. Each sample is long, ranging from 3 to 4.5 minutes long (for seamless loops) and recorded at a high sample rate 96kHz (for clean time-stretching) and unprocessed.

    Great stuff, looks like everyone’s got the contact mic itch right now. I especially loved the “fan” sample!

    I vote for the fan sample, too. Sounds like a freaking helicopter.

    I’m gonna have to write some music that lends itself to fan noises now.
