Vintage Elevator Sound Library

Experience the nostalgic charm of Portugal’s yesteryears with this Vintage Elevator Sound Library. Our collection immerses you in the distinctive sounds and ambience of old-world elevators found in the historic cities of Porto and Lisbon. From the meticulous process of swinging open manual doors in Porto to securing the scissor gate and the unique mechanics of Lisbon’s retro lifts, these recordings are a treasure trove of authenticity and history.

Dive into an era when elevators required a hands-on approach, and life moved at a different pace. Imagine yourself transported to the ’60s, ’70s, or ’80s as you explore the auditory delights of these vintage elevator experiences. As a special treat, this collection also includes two bonus recordings from the renowned Miradouro de Cristo Rei, adding even more depth to your sonic journey through the past.

Whether you’re working on historical films, invoking nostalgia, or seeking to infuse your projects with an authentic touch of the past, our Vintage Elevator Sound Library is your ticket to reliving the charm of Portugal’s charming streets and vintage apartment buildings. Take your audience on a captivating auditory journey back in time with this unique sound collection.
