Sound Recording / Gamblers / One armed bandits

Post by noiseworks »

Hi there,

We are an audio outsourcing company, specialising in creating sound effects and music for interactive and linear media. For an upcoming project we would like to gather as many slot machine (casino, gambling) sounds as possible and whilst doing some research online we came across your website. It proves to be very difficult to find museums/collectors who still have either old or new one-armed-bandits etc at home so I was hoping that this forum might be able to help?

Cheers everyone,
Dave

Hello Dave,

Oddly two years ago we had Sound Man John with a very similar request on here and one of our members assisted, so I am sure you may get help
Vintage slot machine sounds wanted

I for some reason bought three vinyl records from the BBC archive of slot machines and arcades, bit of a novelty.

Not sure what ever happened to Dave, but I had forgotten about the BBC sound recordings I bought, god knows why as I do not own a record player !PUZZLED!

Nice selection they used though and you can picture what most of them were. I wonder how many times any of them were ever used in production work... !!UHOH!!

TF Global Media Enterprises?

However, they may well not be for sale, that is unless he hears the sound of lots of notes

Of course copies can be made.......

Wish I was a music mogul :lol:

Yes always interesting how quick people put things on eBay from site posts. Maybe to avoid paying the site a fees for sale or wanted items, but I guess they are not allowed to say.....”I have some if your interested” which is a shame or course. The seller Rob or Rippy is selling them for a lot less than I paid, so a bargain and includes the third in the series of food vendors. There was another one for sale by the original seller still selling thousands on eBay of fruit machines in a pub, but was only interested in the two I shared. Another one of those odd things we buy for no good reason, especially if you can’t even play them. :lol:

What a job though, spending your life going around the country with your tape recorder capturing odd noises or background noise in various normal environments for the pleasure of BBC radio and TV productions....in the early days of live productions they had to make the noises on demand using their imagination. :cool:

If it is of any help I own two old penny arcades based in Norfolk and you're welcome to contact me re recording the sounds you need, i.e. bandits, allwins, cranes, laughing saliors, working models, two player games, etc.

Pete, as with so many people who join the forum, the person who started this thread never logged in again or responded from their initial post.....one wonders why we bother responding, but you can only but try. :!?!:

But now you mention it, I must get up to your arcades to listen to the sounds.....
