    The Continuum 4 - The sound museum


    Hello All Freesounders

    Some of you may be familiar with the concept of the 'continuum' this is a sort of a little evergreen challange that is launched to all Freesounders.
    There is no deadline, no score or vote. The point is just to keep it open forever, so people can just post another entry at any time.

    There are usually some very simple rules.
    This time, there is only one rule - and note well, this is a request from Bram himself!
    The original idea for this sound request came from some suggestions made by people who participate in the monthly dares... after some discussion with Bram, it was turned into the request below:

    Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to record and post the sound of something old, obsolete or out of fashion.

    We are lookig for sounds of old machines, equipment, gear... Stuff that is no longer made, has run out of fashion. Stuff that will soon no longer be used (or parhaps has stopped being used long ago). Stuff that soon will only exist in museums.
    By recording it and posting here, you are assuring this sound remains for prosterity...

    Examples: old door bells, alarm clocks, typwriters, manual seweing machines, steam engines, old valve radios, old cars...
    But also aincient habits, ways, costumes... the sound of smoking a pipe, or rolling up a cigarrete. The sound of people working the fields with a plough pulled by bulls, the sound of a farmer milking cows by hand...
    Even more recent things like fax machines, teletypes, dotmatrix printers. And the sounds of well loved but now obsolete computers: ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amiga, and so many others...

    Post here with a link to your sound when you upload it and I will try to moderate it quickly.
    Please tag with 'continuum-4', and 'sound-museum' in addition to any other tags that you would like to use.

    Thanks !!!

    hmmmm..... erm..... I forgot...

    I just retagged some sounds that fit within the concept. Cool idea!
    One most downloaded sound of mine ie. http://www.freesound.org/people/burkay/sounds/81065/
    There are some more, but hej let's enjoy using tags and find out how great and important they can be.
    So search and find them.
    I just moderated 2 great sounds also and asked the user to add the tags.

    Thanks!
    Feel free to post links to samples or packs here at the thread.
    I know users can run a search on the tags and find the samples, but i think it keeps the thread interesting. grin

    Yesterday, I bought a Casio VL-10(considered to be the worlds smallest synth), would this be interesting to upload??
    I will make some recordings before I sell it again.

    Record all the crap you can!! doesnt matter if it sounds like shit.

    Recorded my Dad's various woodworking machines. His lathe is old - probably made around the 1940s/early 50s - with dangerous exposed belt drives. Would fail modern machine guarding requirements but makes a nice sound!
