The 2017 Audi R8 sound bundle includes 472 clips in 25.31 gigabytes of field recordings. It features the sound of a FSI 5.2 Liter V10 engine from a German luxury car.
The collection gathers 12 synchronized takes of onboard and exterior driving. The onboard perspectives share recordings from the interior (including an Ambisonic perspective), engine, and exhaust while driving with steady RPMs, ramps, and gearshifts. The exterior microphones were arranged at 5 locations to capture slow-to-fast driving while departing, passing by, and arriving, as well as idles. Also included are performed effects of dashboard effects, levers, and doors, impulse responses, and custom mixes of the onboard perspectives.
The collection includes 18 fields of Soundminer metadata, plus BWAV metadata and MacOS Finder comments, Reaper and Pro Tools mixing sessions, and text files of translated search keywords in 7 languages, ready for import into your favourite metadata app.
