The US Peterbilt 359 tractor trailer sound collection includes 322 sounds in 45.66 gigabytes of audio. It shares the sound of a 1968 Detroit 8V82, V8, 2 stroke, diesel engine with a total of 40 channels of field recordings.
The sound library includes 10 synchronized takes of exterior and onboard driving. The 17 onboard perspectives mount microphones in the interior (including an Ambisonic perspective), at the engine, the exhaust, and onboard the body to capture steady RPMs and ramps. 8 exterior microphone perspectives provide departures, reversing, passing, and arrivals at slow, medium, and fast speeds, as well as idles, blips, and more. There are also performed effects of doors, pedals, dashboard switches and other clips.
This commercial truck package includes custom mixes of the onboard perspectives, Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, 18+ fields of professional metadata, and metadata import files for keywords in seven languages: English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
