The 1996 AvtoVAZ Lada Niva VAZ-21214 sound bundle includes 245 sound fx in 21.95 gigabytes of audio. The Niva was known by many names: Lada 4×4, Lada Sport, Lada Talga, Bognor Diva, and Lada Cossack. The collection shares the sound of the Soviet off road vehicle performing a variety of maneuvers with its 1.8 Liter, 4 cylinder inline engine.
The library gathers 12 synchronized takes of onboard and exterior driving. The exterior perspectives depict slow, medium, and fast driving from 2 positions as the car idles, departs, arrives, and passes by. Microphones were mounted at the exhaust, in the engine, and the interior (including an Ambisonic perspective) to record driving at various speeds and with ramps. The collection also shares performed effects of doors, seatbelts, and other effects, along with custom mixes of the onboard perspectives.
The collection also provides Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, full professional embedded metadata, and metadata keyword import files in 7 languages.
