Subtersonic has released a free sample pack featuring the sounds of a 1960’s era Brother typewriter.

I have released another free sample pack — a vintage typewriter! It’s a retro, blue, steel affair that smells like 50 years worth of cigarette smoke. I’d like to imagine that a frustrated news jockey sat before it while giving himself a black lung.

I sampled numerous mechanical sounds this typewriter produces during operation. The sample pack can be used for foley, sound fx, musical composition, and anything else that may come to mind. They were recorded dry as mono 16 bit 96khz .wav files using Audacity, a Shure SM-57 and a Behringer mixer.

The sample pack is a free download at Subtersonic.
