Recording Light Switch Sound Effects in our apartment in Penang, Malaysia
In a few days, we leaving Penang and heading back to Singapore for just a couple of days and then back to Bali. If we travel and stay longer in one place we using different options to find the right place. If we have the time we make appointments with realtors or landlords and choose the place we like the most. Often times it is just not possible and rent our apartments on Airbnb what means its always a gamble between great or nightmare. Here in Georgetown, we had luck with our place.
A few days ago I realized our apartment has over 40 electrical light and power switches on the wall. That is an incredible amount of buttons so why not record them all and create this fun light switch library out of it?
I recorded 84 times and separated each single “click” to one track. You can download the full album on Bandcamp or just the sound you like the most. For the recordings, I used my Zoom F8n and one of my SEM-01 microphones by Seruni Audio.
Take a listen to all switch sounds at once!
The apartment is a 2.5 bedroom apartment with around 80 m². I recorded switches in all rooms like the bedrooms, kitchen, living room and the bathroom. There just everywhere. Three of them turning on the power of the air condition and the fans. The material is all made of plastic.
If you have already access to the Complete Library you will find this album within the “Bandcamp Category”!!!
