Hey Guys, So recently visited the Black Stone Press in Granville Island, Vancouver. Here are some of the sounds from that day. I would like to know what you think about them. Thank you.

Those sound cool, what are your plans for them? –  KellCole Jan 21 '13 at 3:04
As of now, just building my own library. Trying to get as many different sounds as possible. –  Aditya J. Yadav Jan 21 '13 at 3:52
Very nice! What did you use to record? –  Colin Hunter Jan 21 '13 at 15:07

Really nice work! I recorded some printing presses last year, and found the big industrial ones to be incredibly challenging to get just right. I was really running and gunning in a massive industrial complex though. Sounds like you had the opportunity to sit and do a study on one machine, which is very cool IMO.

What was your recording setup?

@Rene Yes, I did have the opportunity to study the Heidelberg printing press before I could record. The owner of the press was very kind enough to let me and a friend come over to their facility and record for a couple of hours. We took multiple takes of the machines. I used the Cold Gold large suction cup contact mic, Sennheiser ME66 and Sound Devices 722 and recorded different perspectives of the press and then combined them together.
