I think that youtube clip has enough for at least a proof-of-bad-idea test.

Yes, each typed character's sound is pretty much indistinguishable, but the
mind is very good at detecting the same sound multiple times in a row, so
sampling a handful of strikes and picking randomly should fix that.

The sound of the shift key prepositioning the typeball.

The sound of " ".

The CR/LF sound; at some point at might be could to have different clips of
different line length CRs.

I still need the "Alert Bell" sound. (From the Honeywell 6001 Operator's
console, not the 360/91 fire alarm bell, though).

Thank you all,
