Remington Noiseless 8

The No. 8 is somewhere between a standard portable and an office machine. As a 1936 Remington brochure puts it, it is "an office model so compact that it may be moved about as desired with no effort. Yet it provides all the operating features for regular correspondence typing. It is the machine for those who appreciate the inestimable advantages of the quiet office and whose budget has not permitted the previous high cost of noiseless performance. Now it costs less than noise." (But the No. 8 was not exactly cheap: it originally sold for $105.)

Is like if I could hear the fingers of Samuel Dashiell Hammet writing.
