About the Sound Effects Library

Here we have captured the sound of a very special Mazda Rx-8. It is built from a streetcar to be an extreme track car for use only at trackdays and for racing. It has the very famous Mazda rotary (wankel) engine and this one is a real high performance version.

Mazda Rx-8 surroundThe recording consists of eight channels left-right exhaust, left-right interior, surround left-right interior and two engine channels. This car has a very special sound with lots of interesting details such as turbonoise (wastegate) and backfires. We have recorded a whole outing on a trackday and you can hear everything from start, idle, revving, trackdriving to engine stop and it even includes a couple of missed gearshifts.

The recording length is 14 min 50 s.
