Lifts and Elevators

19 Different Elevators Captured in Detail

Product Overview

The ‘Lifts and Elevators’ library contains a collection of sounds sourced from 19 different elevators. Each model bringing their own unique sonic qualities and character. From slick and smooth modern elevators to weathered old freight and goods lifts, these high-quality recordings have been carefully captured in:

• Hotels
• Offices
• Studios
• Flats/Apartments
• Schools/Universities
• Warehouses/Industrial Units

Each elevator has been recorded in motion, opening and closing its doors (manually and mechanically), producing metallic rattles, creaks, groans and more. Additionally, Button pressing, alarm bells, buzzers and stationary room tones, have been captured in crystal clear detail.

All sounds have been recorded in high-quality 24 bit, 96 kHz using Sound Devices recorders and Sennheiser MKH8040, MKH416 and MKH30 microphones. Each file has been also tagged with detailed Soundminer metadata to speed up workflow and increase organisation.

The majority of recordings contain both a stereo MS decoded and ORTF version. The midside has a narrower stereo image whilst the ORTF provides a wider version.
