60's Era Chevrolet Town and Country
We recorded this interesting vehicle for an animated film we were working on. We needed the sound of a BIG V8 engine, but it also needed to sound Rock ‘n Roll! not suped up. The kind of big vehicle a rock band would tour in. After searching for many months we found an opportunity to spend a day doing a complete work up on this.

Two things that proved impossible on the day we recorded were driving at speeds over 65 miles an hour and getting clean external drive-by’s on the highway in sync with the on-board recorders. It wasn’t that we couldn’t technically pull it off, it was that the stretch of highway we thought would be open was a detour for a larger highway and the road was jammed during our limited record time. There are some good slow to medium speed pull ups, drive-aways and pass-bys where the internal and external rigs were synched. As an added value, we’ve included the highway passby’s as separate files in case you need a few extra of those.

Comprehensive Metadata embedded for great Soundminer integration.
