Slide Projector Sounds! 1972 Eastman Kodak “Carousel”

read more · listen · download

Okay, first off my apologies for not realizing in the first place that I had the slide projector all the time the wrong way around. I didn’t even think about it so please don’t judge me. :). We live, we learn and personally, it was the first time for me seeing a projector like this before.

Slide Projector Sounds

When we visit Libby’s family in Iowa last year I walked around the house and found this really cool and old Eastman Kodak slide projector. I tried it out, pressed some buttons and it worked perfectly fine and I thought what a great sound effect to record. By the time I only used the Zoom H6 but with having the F4 now, the H6 is still my favorite recorder. Quick and handy, light and for the price it has a fantastic audio quality.

I made a whole video about turning on and off the machine and how I load and unload the negatives into the carousel. It’s long but if you only want the sound feel free to hit the download button.

I think its a very nostalgic and important sound like the very old  1960 Smith and Corona typewriter sound that I recorded and if we don’t archive these recordings then we forget about a whole age. Maybe I am wrong but this projector might be from the 80s and yes big film productions have these sounds and the machines but what is if somebody works on an audio drama, animation or a podcast that take places in the 70s for example and wants to include a projector sequence. Here you have it. I asked the Reddit community they believe its a Kodak H600 from 1972. Incredible and it still works.

I took the files and created a best of a soundtrack with all the important sounds in it but if you want to full length of 25 minutes this one is in my “secret sound library” in the Sounds Of USA category together with the short version.
