That zip sound is the sound of a plane chattering through the cut. Common on moulding planes and wooden planes where the wedge isn't fit well.

a topic for another day is that I think that zip sound can be the same or less labor in a heavy cut in some cases, not all, but it doesn't yield a good surface.

I'd imagine that someone doing moulding work professionally, if any such thing would happen these days, would spend quite a bit of time finding straight nice working wood as it's always nice to strike long mouldings and then cut them. But they can only be done smoothly if the whole length of wood is clear and agreeable.
