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.
Metal Scratch features
- 126 metal scratches, recorded and edited at 24 Bit/96 kHz WAV.
- Embedded metadata (BWF MetaEdit).
- Recorded with Fostex FR2 – DIY Dummy Head (EM158).

The sample pack is available to download at no cost.
