The Richard King Vehicle Series features world-class vehicle sound effects libraries developed from the private collection of four-time Academy Award®-winner Richard King (Dunkirk, Inception, The Dark Knight). All sounds were expertly captured by industry-leading recordists – often from various perspectives to give editors maximum flexibility. Explore the full series here.
Captured with utmost care and detail, Richard King’s 1933 Buick Coupe sound effects library is perfect for bringing authenticity to 1930s and ‘40s period pieces (or any time you need the sound of a classic vintage car). But this isn’t just any old clunker – this iconic American auto was a high-performance machine in its heyday, and these recordings capture it running in top shape. This library includes 115 recordings of the vehicle starting, stopping, idling and driving, as well as door sounds, gear shifting, ignition clicks, horn honks and more. This library includes 8 multichannel sets with synchronized engine and tailpipe microphones, giving you plenty of flexibility for cutting scenes with multiple angles.
What is a workup? A workup is a thorough series of recordings of the same subject from many different perspectives, angles, and distances. To ensure you have the sounds needed for any scene, a workup of a specific vehicle provides recordings of every action the vehicle performs – both interior, exterior, and at different speeds including pass bys, engine rumble, mechanical sounds, car Foley, and more.
Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
