Metal Scratch free binaural sample pack by Ongelegen

Ongelegen has released Metal Scratch, a free sample library featuring binaural recordings of metal scratches.

This fourth library of The Binaural Collection consists of metal scratches. The recipe for this pack was simple: a metal housing from a deceased tape deck and a few sharp and blunt objects to ruin the surface of the housing.

I tried to capture all the nuances of the sounds and make the sounds as big as possible without any additional processing so I close mic’ed them with the front perspective of my dummy head.
