A challenge for the Pit...
Basically, a local radio has a challenge where if you guess the source of this sound... win a bunch of cash. So I come to the Pit for help. What the hell is this sound?
These are things that people have already guessed wrong:

An old credit card machine
An old rotary telephone
An old cassette player
An old camera flash
An old ViewMaster
An old abacus

The radio station did say though that it is something old, and that it was recorded at their office place.

Any ideas?

It's probably the sound of you not having much of a chance of winning. :shrug:

I think it may be a typewriter.

I'd like to go with old ViewMaster for 500 please.

Either a cash register or a type writer.

So we're supposed to figure the answer for you so you can win the money and not share it with us?

No. You get no help, my friend.

I think it sounds like a typewriter or some sort of gun, but let's keep them coming.

Edit: that video is supposed to be a pixelated video of the actual thing that makes the sound.

Pitwulf 12-17-2012 11:37 AM

aye I was going to say typewriter or cashregister. This shit is too easy

clocking in/clocking out machine.

Apparently it's not so easy, since the contest has been going for a couple of weeks and no one got it right.

The sound of somebody making a seemingly low quality recording.

Paper slicer thingy.

Pool cue.

Knife against a solid object.

One of those punch in card things.

Old printing calculator

like this

Specifically, it sound like them doing one press of the "paper feed" button.

Can I buy a vowel Pat?

TheTee56 12-17-2012 12:00 PM

I'd recognize that sound anywhere.

It's a plastic banana machine.

You don't want to know.

whywefight 12-17-2012 12:03 PM

typewriter or a small gun.

Edit: If someone gets it, keep us updated.

WantsLesPaul 12-17-2012 12:07 PM

Camera? :shrug:

captainsnazz 12-17-2012 01:24 PM

One of those paper guillotine things?
