  • Cars Car Doors Play Track 78 sounds included $15

    I have been spending days at the local auto salvage yard, which is where our 4-wheeled friends end their days – and here's the result:

    The Car Doors library gets you 78 mono door open/close sounds from 30 cars, and 6 car trunks, with multiple passes on each for soft and hard closes – all metadata tagged and ready to go!

    Before the poor things were being torn apart for spares and placed on top of each other, I had the pleasure of recording a lot of their doors, opening and closing. As they were rubbish anyway, I could really put all my weight into the closing, and not being scared of the consequences. The sounds are from everyday cars, and some had a bit of rattle and rust, or cheap and thin kind of sound to them, others had some nice, heavy, and convincing thump, to them when they closed.

  • Cars The Porsche 911 GT3 Play Track 270+ sounds included $50

    The Porsche 911 GT3 is not a typical race car.

    With engine, transmission, air intake and exhaust all situated in the rear of the vehicle under a large wing, this pure driving machine has sonic characteristics very different from many familiar racing vehicles. Its exhaust note is deep and throaty and the transmission is snappy at speed.

    The Porsche 911 GT3 library is a series of recordings that were made on a track just outside of Houston on media day for the Effort race team. These are 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 Rs that race on the Pirelli World Challenge series. Each car has a naturally aspirated, water cooled, four valve 4.0 liter flat six cylinder Porsche engine. These cars create 500 horse power from the factory and race with E10 fuel. The transmission is a Porsche six gear racing box with sequential shift mechanism.

    With full access to the vehicles and the track, we recorded up to 13 channels on every movement.

    The recording setup was as follows:

    • Onboards including Sanken CUB01, Crown PZM and Sanken COS11 mics
    • Interiors captured with a Sure VP-88
    • An ORTF array of Line Audio CM3s at pit row
    • An array of MKH60s and a Shoeps MS rig at another straightaway on a balcony
    • An ORTF array of Line Audio CM3s at a long slow turn
    • A roving handheld MKH70 rig

    After a full day of recording we had material ranging from idles and slow starts to whip bys and burnouts. We also got a wide variety of foley and ambient recordings that happened organically throughout the day.

    This library presents a vintage Gordini race car from 1947, recorded on a private race track.

    We captured a full lap and a half with three onboards microphones and a Schoeps MS for the exterior pass bys.

    Witness the powerful loud (LOUD) sound of this vintage beauty and its trumpeting exhaust from hell.

    Recording setup:

    Onboards microphones routed to a MixPre6 :

    Engine – Shure SM11
    Exhaust – Shure SM11
    Cockpit – DPA4061
    Exterior passes recorded with a Schoeps MK4/MK8 to a Cooper CS104.
