Turning a bathroom scale into an engine
Recently we purchased a scale from IKEA, when we finally got around to using it we realized that it must be off, as I do not weigh 240 lbs. As we did not have a receipt, or the desire to drive 2 hours to return a $10 scale the only course of action left to me was to take the damn thing apart and record its insides. (What else?)
I recorded and edited together around 7 and a half minutes of various configurations and performances of me making some sort of repetitive, engine-like sound. I can foresee myself using these sounds for an old-timey engine or car and as such I tried to get some sort of acceleration and deceleration sounds into there as well, just in case
Please download it (as it is free, like all of my Bandcamp stuff) and skip around the file and listen to some variations, I tried to vary the performances as much as I could within reason to ensure a useful recording to someone.
Do let me know if you use it in your projects, I would love to hear how it gets used!
