Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
If you’re looking for a unique addition to your sound effects library, consider getting the sounds of a 1972 Eastman Kodak slide projector. When I stumbled upon one at Libby’s family’s basement in Iowa, I knew it was a golden opportunity to capture some amazing slide projector sounds for post-production and sound design.
After plugging in the slide projector, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it still worked perfectly despite being covered in dust. I used a Zoom H6 with an attached XY microphone to record the sounds, which included the hum of the projector’s fan, the sound of slides being inserted into the slots, and the cycling of the slides on the carousel.
Recording these types of sounds helps to preserve the audio history of past eras, and they can be used in a variety of ways in modern productions. If you’re interested in adding some vintage flair to your sound design, consider recording the sounds of a 1972 Eastman Kodak slide projector.
The 1972 Eastman Kodak Slide Projector is a vintage piece of equipment that was popular during its time for viewing and sharing photographic slides. It was manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company, a company known for its contributions to the field of photography. The projector was designed to hold and display circular trays of 35mm slides and was equipped with a fan and a motor to advance the slides. Today, the projector is often used for its unique and nostalgic sound effects in post-production and sound design.
