Typing, electric motors, mechanical levers
The Electric Typewriters library by SoundBits is a collection of 488 recordings of four and a half (yes, half - one machine was broken) old electric typewriters. Sounds range from opening/closing covers, pressing keys, random typing, electric motor movement of the writing head, mechanic hammering of the letters, small mechanical levers & more.
These sounds can be used for interfaces as well as, of course, typewriters - but they could also easily be mangled and mutilated for some great robotic and futuristic sound design.
The following typewriters are included in this library:
- Panasonic R300
- Olivetti Lettera E501
- Sharp PA-4000
- Triumph+Adler Gabriele 100
- Erika 3006
This library was recorded with a Sennheiser MKH8050 through a UA Apollo 8 and a RODE NTG-3 through a Sound Devices 744T. All sounds are royalty free.
