Motorcycle sound effects and recordings
The second volume of assorted recording sessions and design fragments from Eiravaein Works.
Libraries in the Vaeyan series will be produced over time as new library concepts are explored and researched.
A second helping of intriguing sonic flavor for any sound designer's archive!
This sound collection covers a wide range of sounds produced by the Vintage 125CC motorcycle Vespa 1962 . All sounds recorded with high end equipment – 24 bit and 96KHz
All the files are mono. The stereo impression in the demo is created by means of panning.
In this collection of high quality sound-recordings you’ll find several tandem and multitrack recordings. Please note that phasing issues between the MKH 8070 and the DPA4061’s are perfectly normal because of fluctuating time differences. The 4061’s are always onboard, fixed and in phase in contrast to the MKH8070 which was handheld on the roadside or handheld pointing at the exhaust while driving along as a passenger.
Besides that also important to note:
The 5 LOOPED SOUNDS are not unique. They
are edits from the larger driving sounds. I just put these in for your convenience should you
quickly need some loops for your project. This is also true for one of the the Revs soundfiles.
(Heavy revs) I thought I just cut this one too for your convenience to quickly have a list of all
relevant revs in this library. So those six soundfiles are the only double content.
A mixture of field recordings from the characteristic Vegas model from Victory motorcycles.
Includes onboard riding takes, as well as exterior passes by, approaches, and departures. Onboard takes are provided in a split left-right configuration as well as a mixed version.
Get the sounds of a Yamaha 24MX 125 cc dirtbike – featuring onboard and exterior recordings.
The recording consists of 11 channels, two exhaust, driver back, chain, two engine, intake and 4 synced exterior channels, left, right, surround and following shotgun. It contains several start, stop, idle, blips, revving at constant rpms without gear, various accelerations and decelerations, driving while braking to get even rpms etc.
Driver back channel is missing for the first startup, and chain channel suffers from bad contact last startup, but we decided to keep those in since they still contain many useful parts. The recording length is 19 min 3 s.
The Yamaha YZ250 Dirt Bike SFX library from Watson Wu delivers the sounds of this 2004 motorcycle with a 250cc 2 stroke engine. Files are divided into external static sounds, external following sounds, foley sounds, and onboard sounds. Captured Onboard – from the driver's point of view. External recordings: External Static is from a fixed stereo microphone. External Following is from an MS Stereo Shotgun mic following the traveling dirt bike.

There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
I often need very specific types of sounds so I've become a big supporter of independent recorders.
Until now I've always had to go to their individual websites. Now I can find them all in one place.
And, Asbjoern is great to work with!
A Sound Effect is a well curated boutique sound effects shop and a great place to find industry interviews and learning resources.
