The FULLY RIGGED edition contains more channels, more manoeuvres, more GB. Perfect, if you need to fine-tune the sonic driving experience or if you have some elaborate scenes, as you can never have enough source recordings. We captured every angle, every action, direction, level, nook and cranny the four-wheeled spitfires would surrender – which amounts to a staggering 112,6GB of sound material in the FULLY RIGGED edition.

We recored the interior of each car with a 4-channel Sennheiser Ambeo® setup, perfect for VR applications.
