‘Couple of months ago I created a Pioneer RT 909 reel to reel machine model and then decided to create an animation for it. This is the result. Cinema 4D and Redshift were used.’ Marki Mrvic

A Symphony of Analog: Sound Design for the Reel to Reel

This captivating animation by Marki Mrvic celebrates the beauty and history of the Pioneer RT-909 reel to reel machine. Sound design plays a central role in bringing this machine to life.

A Tapestry of Textures:
  • Celebrating Mechanics: The sound design recreates the intricate sounds of the machine in operation. Delicate tape movements and subtle mechanical clicks are juxtaposed with the satisfying clunks and whirring of the metal mechanisms. This interplay of sounds creates a captivating soundscape that evokes the heart and soul of this analog marvel.
  • A Modern Touch: A layer of arpeggiated bespoke music weaves through the soundscape, providing a sense of warmth and a subtle modern rhythm. This melodic element complements the mechanical sounds without overshadowing them.
  • Immersive Listening Experience: The mixdown ensures the machine's sounds remain the focal point, while the music provides a supportive backdrop. As the camera pans away, the introduction of subtle room ambience further immerses the listener in the environment.
  • A Cassette Masterpiece: The final touch? A mastering process completed on a genuine Panasonic RX-5500LE cassette tape deck, adding a layer of warmth and authenticity that perfectly complements the animation's celebration of analog technology.
