A LARGE COLLECTION OF ELEVATOR SOUNDS

This is a selection of more than 30 different elevators, displaying a broad variety in sound. The whole library was recorded in 192 kHz (with Earthworks QTC50) as elevators often have high pitched metal sounds, squeaks and electrical hum up there, which makes great material for extreme pitch shifting. In addition to the omnis, which get you a very accurate impression of the space, a harsher, more direct pair of microphones were used in m/s on a lot of recordings. You could even build a surround version from these mics together.
.
The library focuses on the most important sounds for games and movies, elevators going up & down as well as doors sliding open and closing. Besides, I recorded atmos, buttons and footsteps wherever possible. I also added some studio foley takes to add a selection of rattles, squeaks, metal impacts, doors etc. to create the exact elevator sound that suits your needs.
.
The elevators range from a 1929 wooden paternoster, metallic freight elevators/goods lifts to a 90s futuristic Kone disc drive and 2015s all-glass cabins. Carrying a maximum of 2 people to 33 people. Recorded in universities, offices, hotels, warehouses, industry, town halls, private households, malls and many more.
.
The meta-data allows you to sort by year, kg, people, brand, action and of course character. You like to hear it rattle, squeak, groan, grind, slide, clatter and hiss (yeah, lots of fan noise)? This is one for you.

About Sound of Essen

About Sound of Essen

Sound of Essen is a project by Nils Mosh, a field recordist, a sound artist and designer from Essen, Germany. In his works, he explores the spirit of sound from various locations. He always listens to the places in their social context and examines them for the interaction between nature and human-made influences. And in between, he simply opts out of the world and falls in love with the sound of the resonances of a handrail or the delicate chirping of a water beetle. In 2017 his recording „Das Team“ won 2nd price at the international radio award "60 seconds" in Canada. Besides recording in the territory of the wolf GW954f from 2019-2022 for the release „Of wolves and people“ (Gruenrekorder 214) with Melissa Pons, he presented sound art work at festivals like Tonwelten Festival (2023), Blaues Rauschen Festival (2023) or Weimarer Sommer (2018). He collaborated with dance & perfomance artists for performances in Montreal, Tel Aviv and across Germany. He also lectures about field recording at the universities in Darmstadt & Duesseldorf. Besides his sound art & field recording work, he also runs the blog Sound of Essen and sells sound effects for games & movies. His focus is on local sounds, which he explores with his deep knowledge of these specific sounds and which are sometimes hard to get in other places of the world. His libraries range from local animals to unique aircrafts and farming machines.
