Bowling is a collection of sounds recorded at a private lane, completely devoid of extraneous human and HVAC sounds. This exclusive access allowed for recording various perspectives, including deep in the guts of the machinery, up-close to the pins, bowler’s perspective, and side perspectives. This library includes all of the mechanical sounds, machinery ambiences, ball “pass-by’s”, ball return, gutter balls, pins resetting, and even bowling sounds without any machinery noise at all – that’s right, I got to turn off the machinery for clean bowling sounds! A field recordist’s dream!
So whether you need actual bowling sounds or just some really cool, vintage 1970’s mechanical sounds, this library is here for you!
