The Odyssey Collection: Vehicles - Basic
Accelerate your productions with world-class recordings of the most commonly used vehicles in film & TV
Featuring an essential selection of recordings from The Odyssey Collection: Vehicles, the Basic Version is a must-have collection for sound editors including sounds of the most common cars in film and television.
Bring your vehicles to life with confidence, precision, and world-class quality using masterful recordings curated from the private library of Academy Award®-winning sound editors Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Richard L. Anderson (The Lion King, Edward Scissorhands).
Cars are everywhere, but most sound artists lack the resources to tackle vehicle-centric projects. Purchasing a professional library of a single vehicle can cost over $100, and recording certain vehicles yourself can cost thousands. The result is that most sound artists consider vehicles to be the weakest category in their library.
That's why we designed Odyssey Vehicles Basic as an accessible, no-brainer collection to boost the quality of vehicle sounds in every production you work on. With more than 25 vehicles for just $199, including 1,500 sound files and over 20 workups, Odyssey Vehicles Basic is the perfect sonic toolset for efficiency and authenticity in your sound editing.
What is a workup? A workup is a thorough series of recordings of the same subject from many different perspectives, angles, and distances. To help cover your needs 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.
We curated this library based on the most frequently used vehicles in film and television. Featured vehicles include the Chevrolet Caprice, Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Model A, Ford Mustang, Ford Crown Victoria, Ford Focus, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Volkswagen Rabbit, Porsche Cayman and more. Each sound file is embedded with rich, descriptive metadata to help find the exact vehicle and sound you need with fast, intuitive search results.
Like all libraries in The Odyssey Collection, Vehicles Basic will inspire you to create your best work with its renowned quality, utility, organization, and cinematic character.

“Having great vehicle workups like this can really save you days or even weeks in the editorial process. Not to mention it makes your final product sound absolutely fantastic.”
Sound Designer & Effects Editor
“What we love about the recordings is that some dirt is left in, which always helps with worldizing a vehicle in a mix. The frequency response is natural, but the quality is exceptional.”
Sound Designer, 344 Audio
"This is a fantastic selection of vehicles... In a lot of the libraries I’ve used, it’s a lot of recordings from the same vehicle, not a lot of consistency. But the workups in Odyssey Vehicles have interior on-board, exterior on-board, stuff like like glove compartment and seat belts. Really comprehensive... you don’t see that with a ton of car libraries."
