This spectacle of German engineering is a very impressive sounding beast. With an amazing sounding Engine and a perfectly precision tuned exhaust system this car is the very sound definition of engineered. This car is a great addition to any growing sound library.
With separate onboard engine recordings capturing aspects of the engine belt noise, rotation and timing sounds. Exhaust recordings capturing the sweet tune in which this car sings with a dual tone exhaust pipe purr. Finally the interior cabin perspective recordings in surround for internal audio of the car with additional switches and buttons being pressed and flicked.
The car is an Audi R8 Plus with a 5.2L V10 engine with an immense 612bhp of fury under the bonnet. With an amazing custom Quicksilver titanium exhaust system fitted out in replacement for the original stock model this car has an iconic sound.
Approaching this car recording session like we always do, we aimed to capture all the sonic character this car has to offer. Recording a series of manoeuvres from slow to fast driving while switching gears. We of course also comprehensively captured the exterior perspectives with lots of drive ins and drive offs, passbys and door shuts.
With 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.
