Sound Recordings of Cars
The Sounddogs Car Sound Archive comprises a wealth of recordings of each care model. This is crucial for sound editing as it allows you to use sounds from different perspectives or use different speeds and angles of the car.
A car will sound very different depending on where you locate the microphone. Placed near the hood, the mic will pick up the sound of the engine; at the rear, it will mainly pick up the bass sounds and the exhaust.
Car Sounds - Different Speeds
Recordings of a car at different speeds should be part of any comprehensive, high-quality sound archive. This is especially important for sound editors who work in feature film, documentary and TV production; having multiple angles, speeds and perspectives at your disposal will help you edit the sounds more precisely within a sequence. If the car appears several times in the film, it needs to sound the same way each time.
Sounddogs - The Specialists for Car Recordings
Sounddogs recordings are famous for their creativity and inventiveness. Rob Nokes, the founder and owner of Sounddogs, is an ace car sound recordist. Over the course of his career, Rob has recorded countless cars and vehicles. Reason enough to take a look over Rob's shoulder and learn some of his tricks.
In the following article, we observe Rob Nokes as he wires up cars for sound recordings.
Comprehensive Recordings of Cars and Vehicles
The Sounddogs Car Series Sound Archives contain comprehensive recordings of various cars and vehicles. This is very useful in film production, as a vehicle might appear several times and in different situations in a film. The extensive vehicle recordings in the Sounddogs Car Archives were made at various speeds and from different angles.
Rob Nokes and the Sounddogs team put a lot of effort into these recordings (demonstrated by the following example of the Soundminer metadata for the Toyota Landcruiser recordings).
Sounddogs' Vehicle Recordings
Rob Nokes always makes sure to capture different acoustic perspectives and angles with all the Sounddogs reocordings. The following pictures of the 1971 Toyota Landcruiser illustrate the inventiveness of Rob's microphone positioning around the car. You can easily tell that Rob Nokes has a lot of experience mounting microphones in unusual places, e.g. on the car's suspension, in the engine block (in a fire-proof position), on the exhaust pipe, by the wheels, etc.
