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.

    Just can't seem to keep away from this sound. It's so incredibly useful for all the things in a sci-fi setting. Thanks yet again for making this sound available!

    I'm back again. Between this and the "3AM In A Deserted Spaceport" track, one can put together a very convincing background soundscape for so many potential sci-fi settings. I love it. Thanks so much for making this sound available!

    And yet again. I really hope more people find this sound of yours. Especially the sci-fi creators. It really is a solid background sound. Thank you so much for making this sound available!

    Me again. Same basic concept. This sound effect is a real workhorse for a variety of sci-fi and medical ambient soundscapes. Low volume or high, it really fills things out. I love it. Thanks yet again for recording it!

    Here is how it got used (again, in a return to the space station office of The World's Most Important Person In The World (or some such):

    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!
