MakerBot Sound Library #001 - Pulley Print
by mifga, published
While these are not physical objects per se, at Bre's request I will be sharing media back with the Thingiverse community from this work so that these sources can be used by members of the community and beyond to incorporate into the overall "franchise" of their MakerBot printing projects, videos, and music(!) â€” and to generally encourage the thingiverse community to make use of the bot's sound/music related properties, create derivatives, spread the word, etc..
The MakerBots I have known are playful beasts and want to do more than just make tools and clamps and support structures and dry demonstration videos â€” they want to create art and music and and participate in art, films, TV, music, music videos and other media mayhem. To that end, coming up in the next few months will be more experiments in sampling sounds, making tones, and arranging samples from bots as well as efforts to repurpose the MakerBot as a musical instrument for live and recorded performance.
For this first sound library, I'm focusing on the sounds of printing a pulley. I had the assistance of a location sound recordist for film (Andrew Baker) for a solid, steady, lovely boom recording. I also have a number of different types of contact mics (film and piezo) and a Marantz stereo recorder that I have used to grab these details.

Why don't you issue them here as a derivative of this thing? Unless they are well and truly huge, it is okay to upload them here as you would STL files etc. That is in fact what Bre asked me to do for this sound library. A Sound Library #002 (by a professional radio producer who does SFX for games) will be going up shortly (next week?) so it will be a good time to draw attention to your sounds so that people can use these improvements while they investigate the new sounds as well.
I did some creative denoising and they came out kind of interesting. I'll have these up for... as long as I can, but probably not literally forever.
I messed around with converting MIDI files to GCode using Midi2CNC http://tim.cexx.org/?tag=midi2... when I first got my bot. Haven't done much with it since I added the belts and started printing.
BTW, here's a DIY guitar coil pickup: http://www.instructables.com/i...
@dietz1: where's the track?

Give a Shout Out
Two zip file archives have been created for downloading the entire 001 edition.
Please take these samples and filter/edit/rework them -- and give back to the community by posting derivatives here as compositions, drum loops, sound effects, and other elements you are making.
I also have 24bit recordings of all of these sources -- let me know if you need more raw sources or bigger files for your efforts. Also, let me know what sorts of samples you need -- I have rather a lot of this stuff, and could use suggestions for what to mine for you.
