Unidentified Sound Object - Sound Effects Libraries - Sound Design - Matteo Milani - ACME

This small sound library contains all the original CPU fan and hard disk noises emitted by the following vintage Apple MACs, each with its own unique texture: Power Macintosh 4400, Power Macintosh 6400, Power Macintosh 7200, Macintosh Classic, Macintosh Mac G4, Macintosh Mac LC 475.

The material contains a lot of mechanical noises and different startup chimes, plus a lot of boot sequences with all the hard drives/fans spinning and whirring. I wandered around the chassis with a condenser microphone to find interesting spots for constantly evolving sound colours. Induction coil pickups were also used to record the electromagnetic fields emitted by the computer components.
