99Sounds has launched a new title in its series of free sample packs. A collaboration with field recordist Marcel Gnauk of “Free To Use Sounds”, the Electromagnetic Sounds library delivers over 2GB of glitches, static noise, humming, buzzing, electronic interference, and more.
The sounds in this pack are suitable for layering, resynthesis, and other kinds of audio experiments.
Listening to the Electromagnetic Sounds audio demo, it’s hard to believe that these noises weren’t synthesized. But it’s true! These are all real-world recordings of actual electromagnetic fields and electronic devices.
To record these sounds, Marcel Gnauk of Free To Use Sounds took his trusty LOM Priezor antenna for a spin around the city of Singapore. The antenna was connected to a Zoom F8n field recorder, capturing a crowded metropolis’s electromagnetic activity.
Marcel recorded numerous electromagnetic sound sources, including arcade centers, air conditioners, bus stops, vending machines, elevators, and more. It’s amazing to hear these electronic noises that surround us every day, without us even noticing.
The sound library includes a total of 62 audio files in 24-bit WAV format.
