Recording of a British 2017 Aston Martin Rapide S with a V12 engine with 510 bhp.
The British 2017 Aston Martin sound collection includes 194 clips in 15.2 gigabytes of audio. It showcases the sound of its V12 engine with 510 bhp and 620 N m torque, same engine as used in the DB9. The vehicle uses a six-speed Touchtronic2 automatic gearbox in paddle-operated semi-automatic mode.
The sound bundle gathers field recordings from both exterior and onboard recordings in 11 synchronized takes. The exterior perspectives feature 7 perspectives of the sports car departing, passing by, and arriving through slow to fast speeds. The 11 onboard perspectives arrange microphones at the engine, exhaust, and interior to depict driving at steady RPMs, with gearshifts, and ramps. There are also three custom stereo mixes of each interior location.
The package includes Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, as well 18+ fields of professional Soundminer, BWAV, and MacOS Finder metadata in every clip.
