The French 1942 SOMUA S35 cavalry tank sound collection gathers 276 clips in 14.73 gigabytes of sound. Also known as the S40, this tank was used by the Allies and later the Axis forces in World War 2. It is powered by a SOMUA V-8 petrol engine, running on a malfunctioning engine with 6 out of 8 pistons.
11 synchronized takes of driving are shared from both onboard and exterior perspectives. The onboard perspectives mount microphones in the engine, interior, and at the exhaust. A variety of exterior perspectives capture the tank approaching, departing, passing, reversing, and more at slow, medium, and fast speeds. Bundled with the sound library are custom mixes of the onboard tracks.
Every clip is embedded with professional metadata. Also included are Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, and metadata import files for keywords in seven languages: English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
