Thomas Park- Machines On Machines Samples [treetrunk 264]

Thomas Park took several scores of recordings of machines made using a contact microphone, in high fidelity, and ran them through a program that adds random processes to the sounds. He chose the 100 best outtakes, and trimmed them to make them usable. These sounds are fun for listening, and would be ideal for using as elements in music or sound design.

Thomas Park- Machines By Contact Microphone [treetrunk 362]

A set of recordings Thomas Park made with a sturdy contact microphone manufactured by Crank Sturgeon and Thomas’ Tascam DR-05 Recorder. Each source file is in high fidelity, 24/96 quality, with no clipping or effects added. Recordings were edited to isolate specific portions of sound, but that was the only additional treatment. Each recording was of a machine or mechanical object.
