Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
Have you seen the TV series Mindhunter? In the first episode, while Holden and the FBI director have a discussion you can hear typewriting sounds in the background. After viewing that scene, I was inspired to record typewriter sound effects.
I was fortunate to notice Libby’s best friend had one in her office! It was an original Smith and Corona typewriter from the 1960s and it was beautiful! She was kind enough to let me type with it and I asked if I could record the sounds. She was happy to allow me to do that. I’m so glad I brought my recorder with me that day!
I placed my Soundman binaural microphones left and right on the typewriter with a Zoom H6 recorder. I spend around 10 minutes typing at different paces. My favorite sound was of the “BING” that is made at the end of each sentence!
Who would have thought a handy sound recorder in Cambodia would lead us here?
