  • Cars Smart Fortwo, 2005 Play Track 60+ sounds included, 37 mins total $49

    The Smart Fortwo is a unique everyday car. Under the hood, or rather under the trunk (it’s a rear mounted engine) this hatchback sports a tiny 41hp diesel engine. Normally covered for obvious reasons, we opened it up to expose the engine and get some super clean onboard recordings from inside the car.

    Also, because the Fortwo has a quasi-manual transmission, we were able to perform the gear changes with dramatic sequences in mind. So they are more pronounced, adding some character that is sometimes lost in a fully automatic transmission.

    Included are a full set of exterior and onboard (engine/tailpipe) recordings at varying speeds as well as all the doors and a couple dashboard chimes.

    TESTIMONIALS & BUYERS COMMENTS

    “I had a Tesla in a show and realized I had no Tesla library – This kit got the job done perfectly – Thanks Rick!

    -Jonathan Lipman, MPSE
    Sony Pictures: “The Good Doctor” network TV series

    “Rick’s TESLA SFX library was a life-saver for us on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce, especially since Tesla demands that ONLY authentic Tesla sounds be used whenever their vehicles appear in a scene! Rick’s FX gave us that authenticity. Very valuable resource. Thanks Rick!”

    – David Briggs
    Supervising Sound Editor, HBO “Divorce”

    “Hey Rick! Awesome job on the Tesla library! Literally minutes after downloading, I cut one of the servos into a commercial I’m working on… I’m going to get a TON of mileage out of the wheel recordings. I feel like wheels are a really difficult sound to get a great recording of… All around great job!”

  • 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.
