Squealing sound that has been slowed down, creating the effect of a giant metal structure under rapid stress.

This sound is a modification from the sound "Creaking Metal Desk".

Recorded with: Shure SM57 Dynamic Microphone.
Processed with: Audacity

    I used this slowed WAY down to represent giant gear bearings, in a school video project. Thanks!

    Haunting atmospheric creak. Looking to possibly use in a film.

    Very cool sound, I used it in a song as the main, leading sound (after distorting it a little; very dark, experimental track). I think you're doing a great job with supplying us with such sounds, they're hard to achieve for me. Thanks!

    I intend to use this sound as a backdrop for creating a feeling of suspense, fear, or notion of something falling apart.
