Rattling Rides is a mechanical sound effects library featuring powerful rattles, impacts, vibrations, and pneumatic hiss sounds from a variety of mechanical devices and amusement park rides. Create larger-than-life robots, sci-fi vehicles, and mechanical atmospheres with multi-perspective scrapes, clunks, shakes, clatters, and buzzes.

Recorded after-hours at an amusement park by sound artists Tobias Poppe (Jojo Rabbit) and Chris Diebold (Spider-Man: No Way Home), these sounds were captured with sound designers in mind. Instead of rattles with a small, metallic, hollow character, their goal was to get textures that were more heavy, tight, and modern sounding. And since these sounds were recorded at 192kHz high resolution with high quality microphones including the Sanken CO-100K, there are endless possibilities for creative sound design with pitching and processing.

Whether you’re creating the sonic world of a spaceship or sweetening machine sounds, this hi-fi library provides well-isolated, quality sounds for your project. Unlock the processing power of these electric whirs, powerful thuds, and buzzy vibrations, recorded with multiple microphones from multiple perspectives to give true and realistic depth to your robot army. Build immersive soundscapes or create powerful engines of the future with this essential machine sound effects library for the creative sound designer.

Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
