Vinyl record needle static. Useful to add under another sound to "age" it. I created this by splicing together dozens of small empty gaps in a real vinyl record. The result is almost two minutes of actual random vinyl noise. Includes the pop of the needle drop at the beginning. The middle section can be cut or looped to be as long as necessary. Since the entire sample is almost two minutes long, there is no chance that it will be noticed as a loop. And you can overlap and layer it to make your music even "dirtier".
NOTE: This is one of my most popular sounds. You're welcome to use it in your productions, but please let me know when you do. Or post a comment when you use it. I'd love to know all the different ways it's being used.

    Hoping to use the static on a Paul and Tom podcast I'm working on.


    I am several months ahead of release so can't give exact details of the episode but it will be called Babysitting and will be the 4th in the series.
