|Typewriters||On its face, REA_014 is a diverse collection of typewriters spanning over 80 years of mechanical innovation, from the turn of the century to the mid–1970s. The seven typewriters provide source material to cover most of your secretarial needs. In addition to the library’s obvious usage, there are endless mechanical possibilities. Recorded at 192kHz, each sound is ideally suited to exploit pitch shifting. Play these machines at half speed and feel the heft of real craftsmanship: the torque and thud of the hammer’s blow, the carriage return’s zipper-like windup.||Rabbit Ears Audio||0||3.85||Machinery||$70.00||192||24||–||–||–||–|

|Rockets 2: Static Burns||Back in 2004, REA_001 Rockets began our obsession with dry propellant and rocket launches, and we quickly became addicted to the sounds of clicking igniters and pure propellant combustion.
With REA_016 Rockets 2: Static Burns we reprise the collection with a bit of a twist: we left out the rockets! Instead of soaring ballistics, we decided to just burn the motors. A frequent request of the REA_001 release was for sustained, steady state burns. This collection more than addresses that need.

|Rockets||Amateur rockets. When you first hear those words, an image of little Jimmy in the backyard launching a tiny rocket comes to mind. Forget little Jimmy and, instead, imagine adults building high-powered rockets in their free time and launching them in remote locations. The rockets come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and are remarkably sophisticated considering NASA is not involved in their production.||Rabbit Ears Audio||0||0.227||Fire||$70.00||96||24||–||–||–||–|
