Light machinery running, clicking, clacking.

Recorded using the Microtrack with the "T" mic on a pole. 24 bit, 44.1 KHz, stereo. This was from the window of a car parked outside the eastern-most window of the factory. The sound from this machine was very localised- if I moved a foot to the left or right the volume dropped off dramatically. At this center spot you can hear very well the character of the machinery- it sounds like well-oiled, precision steel parts moving. The effect of localization may be caused by plastic or sheet-metal safety shields which are placed around some machines. They would block sound effectively. There are some voices toward the end.

    Thank you! This sound is used for a cartoon-style toy factory in OpenSFX, the official sound set of OpenTTD, a free software transportation management game. You have been credited in the readme file of OpenSFX.

    DUDE!! This sound is so excellent. I make Industrial Music, and this is perfect for background ambience. Thank You so much.

    Thank you so much! Was looking for sound for my radiodocumentary. broadcast sunday 27th may radio1 (18:15). But I'll see how it fits in the edit. Think it'll be great.
