This construction kit creates the world of various rotating gear sounds. Medieval astronomical clocks, fantasy inventions and steampunk gizmos with a lot of wooden shafts, cogs, sprockets and other parts. From tiny to large objects, you can hear the wooden material working in all its nudity – friction, knocking, clacking, rattling, squeaking, crackling, howling and so on.
The product includes 75+75 source recordings and 65 designed tracks of different wooden and sometimes metal gears, variety of styles, types, speeds and timbres.
The source recordings have been created on the basis of individually designed and manually produced wooden machines. Basic sound types in both source and design sections of the library are: Rattling, Friction, Knocking, Clicking and Metal Spin. These archaic machines are not exactly driven, so you can hear rhythm irregularities. Many files have gradual starts and ends.
Gear Sources – 75 original recordings. The standard stereo files have been backed up by MS versions, that are recommended for extreme stereo image manipulations, but it is also possible to extract clear Co100K mono from the left channel. Slightly cleaned and edited for those who would like to design from scratch.
Gear Designed – the 65 standard stereo sounds by their content represent complex mechanisms that fulfill the whole frequency spectrum. From ultrarealistic details up to abstractly unknown sounds. Here we are still in 192 kHz domain.
