The 20 onboard perspectives include recordings from the interior, exhaust, tracks, 3rd-person perspective, and engine with ramps and steady RPMs. The 9 exterior perspectives include slow, medium, and fast driving while the battle tank passes by, reverses, departs, and arrives. There are also shut downs, revving, idles, start ups and others. The package also provides bonus four-channel Ambisonic AMBEO recordings of the interior cabin, performed effects of steering wheel movements, mock driving performances, throttle moves and other sounds, and impulse response recordings from inside the vehicle.
The sound library also shares complete embedded metadata support, 5 custom mixes of the onboard perspectives, metadata import files for keywords in seven languages: English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish, and easy-to-use mixing sessions.
