Ambient sound akin to the bridge of a starship.

Muted background hum with an overtone of air conditioning ducts. Pseudo-random high pitched blips occupy the soundstage.

Could be used as an ambient sound loop for hi-tech / science fiction interiors such as a laboratory, a control room, or the bridge of a spacecraft.

Created with two instances of FLStudio 3x Osc. One kicking out a pair of sinewaves plus noise for the background susurus (hum) and ventilation sound. Second 3x osc is set to produce two interfereing square waves for the blips, squeaks and buzzes. The background was notch filtered and bandpassed to mellow out the humming sound and reduce hiss. The blips were processed with FLStudio EQUO, stereo enhance, Fruity Delay2 and FL Pan-o-matic VST. Each blip was pasted by hand in a seemingly random but not too unpleasant pattern.

    Have I mentioned this sound is awesome?

    I just keep coming back to it. It works so well for any room effects in a scientific or medical facility. I'm going to keep finding excuses to use it. Thanks yet again for recording it!

    Here is how I used it this time:

    And yet again, as the ending ambient background for an after-death experience themed audio RP project. I really love this sound, and will continue to try to think of ways to use it. Thank you so much for recording it!

    Still another use of this sound. In the current usage, it is again used as the ambient background for a sort of medical facility. Thanks again for recording it!

    I like this sound so much I used it again. It doesn't get as much air time, and it sort of gets buried under louder sounds, but I used it as part of the sound effect for a piece of medical equipment going through a scan process. Thanks again for recording it!

    I used your sound again. Ambient background noise (along with some slow piano music) for the space station office of The World's Most Important Person In The World (or some such.) It really helped to fill out the soundscape. Thanks for recording it!

    Here is what I did with it this time:
