This is a remix of volivieri's "small_pipe_bang.wav".
I cut out the third metallic ting sound from the recording and pitched it down 40 notes. I added a Parametric EQ and accented the upper and lower mid freq ranges to achieve an optimum metallic clank sound. I then added another EQ that deals with more precise signal processing, and filtered out some unwanted high end sounds. I slapped on some fast decaying reverb and voila!
I was watching the Silent Hill movie today and I realized how much the sound designers relied on metallic textures to create a mechanical atmosphere so I hunted for some good clanky sounds that I could mess around with to mimic those sounds. Thanks for the great sample volivieri, I'll be back for more no doubt!
