This absolute monster of a machine purrs, growls and rips through the air with its impressive and aggressive array of sounds. With a huge sounding beast of an engine and no turbo in sight, air noise within the engine bay is reduced to a minimum. Fitted with a custom exhaust; this car has some very unique sounding pipes which rasp and roar as it gets to the upper limits of its rev range creating some pretty powerful and dramatic noises.
We recorded an Aston Martin Rapide Naturally Aspirated 6.0L V12 with a straight through custom Quicksilver Exhaust System. Boasting a bhp of 552 bhp and a 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, this car has a lot of power under the hood which is exactly what we captured in our recordings.
We approached this car recording session like we always do, aiming to capture all the sonic character this car has to offer.
We got the car to perform a series of maneuvers from slow to fast driving, gear sweeps and ramps accelerating from idle, all aspects of the car have been captured. Including a fully rigged setup producing isolated onboard recordings of engine, exhaust, interior and two static external trackside perspectives, all timecode jam synced for DAW session reconstruction we have taken all aspects from pre to post production into consideration to increase the ease of use of our products. With included Pro-Tools and Reaper sessions as part of the download package.
