Garage Door Sounds | Electronic | Rusty & Squeaky
Recording garage door sound effects open & closing!
While visiting Libby’s sisters’ home in Sioux City, Iowa we discovered an audio record worthy squeaky garage door. This electronic door has been running since the early 2000s but in my opinion, it sounds much older, spooky and creepy what is great for sound design!
When we came through the door, I said “man this door needs some oil! But first, let me record it opening and closing!
So, with the Zoom H6 in my hand, I recorded the sound from inside the garage and the outside.
From the inside, I opened and closed the door a total of 3 times. And from the outside, I closed and opened the door a total of 2 times. It was about 6 am so you can hear the birds in the background!
The other electronic garage door sounds were recorded in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I walked in one of the side roads and saw a person open the door followed by a fantastic squeaking. I asked him if he could close and open the door again so I can record the sounds of it!
