room noise samples?

im looking mainly for different types of studio noise/ambience samples like a mic left open in a room that i can add to my software instruments. different hiss and background noise samples are welcome too

Honestly, if I did that in my overdub booth, all you would end up with is the hiss from the mic circuit and preamp circuit. The room is dead silent. I would imagine that ANY pro studio would be like that if build decently. Even my air circulator is silent... unless you stick the mic in front of it - then you might get a little wind noise on the grill. My control room is silent other than the wind from the air vent which is actually audible. The machine room is the only place you will get some noise.... computer fan....exciting.

what might work better, anI have done this to help fake things, is throw up a mic and breath and move around like you are playing the instrument in question. Put the mic in a realistic place like you would if the instrument were really there. I think that's probably more of what you are trying to get.

If you want to "place" your instruments "into" a faked environment you should use a Reverb Plug In based on Impulseresponses. There are many free Impulses floatin around in the net. A good free Convulution Reverb PlugIn (windows) IMO is SIR from knufinke.

if you have a cassette player or walkman you can connect those to your interface and record that. hitting play on a blank tape or a tape playing recorded room will give you ambient sounds. I use to do this untill my little boom box broke. it was better sounding to me then the tape hiss plugins ive demoed.
