New Sound Lab has released NSL007 Hybrid Electric Car, a sample library featuring a collection of exterior and interior sounds from a 2007 Toyota Prius.
A majority of the recording was conducted at El Mirage Lake, a six mile long dry lake bed in the Mojave Desert, 90 miles north of Los Angeles. This barren landscape, unique for its miles of completely flat terrain, is a popular filming location for automobile commercials and feature films.
The recording sessions took place late in the evening and early in the morning, when the surroundings were completely silent. An ample collection of exterior pass bys, starts, and stop recordings on pavement, gravel, and dry lake bed are included. Speeds range from 5MPH to 80MPH from only running on the electric motor/battery pack, to pushing the Prius’ gas engine towards it’s max. Other sounds such as washer/wipers, electric motor and gas engine idling complete the collection.
Sounds were captured with a Sanken CSS-5 Stereo Shotgun mic. The shotgun microphone was mounted in a full Rycote windshield kit and connected to a Sound Devices 702 recording at 96khz.
NSL007 Hybrid-Electric Car features
- 100 stereo Broadcast Wave files at 24bit 96khz.
- Library size is 1.5GB.
- All files are organized and tagged with metadata, compatible with Pro Tools, Audiofinder, Soundminer and other sound library management software.
- Metadata PDF included.
The NSL007 Hybrid-Electric Car library is available to purchase for $30 USD.
