More samples — the hallway session samples


Objects involved: Screwdriver, Steel Thermos, Spraypaint Can, Rubbermaid Shelves, Sheetrock Wall, Stair Rail, Wooden Legs That Used To Hold Up Kitchen Island, Sniffing.

Recorded with a Pacific Pro Audio Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, Presonus Tube Pre, RME Hammerfall DSP + Multiface, 24-bit, 44.1 Khz. All samples normalized, a few really quiet ones treated after normalization to remove 60 cycle hum.

It’s interesting how much variation you can get by banging on wooden things. Most of the samples are quite short but they all have some room sound in them because I wasn’t super close the microphone. You can use them as a percussion kit without them sounding airless.
