After our first CAR sound effects library “EVERYDAY CARS”, we’re launching the second release of our popular CARS series: the mighty “SUVs & VANS” are rolling in! Buckle up and hold on tight for a huge collection of big wheelers including Hummer H3, Porsche Cayenne, Hyundai H1, Landrover Defender, Mercedes Benz Sprinter, Mitsubishi Outlander, VW Caddy – and there’s more on the list.
Cars - SUVS & VANS: The sound of Big wheels
Included sounds - keywords
vw, cars, caddy, drive-by, interior, handling, inside, outside, vans, suvs, hummer, hyundai, landrover, mercedes, benz, sprinter, mitsubishi, porsche, toyota, volvo, engine, slow, fast, kickdown, horns, wipers, trunks, pedals, gearshift, accelerate
A ton of driving and foley sounds
Each of these cars comes with detailed individual mechanical characteristics. We combined long takes of multi-channel car engine sounds and drive-bys with a comprehensive collection of interior handling sounds such as indicators, ventilation, pedal break, seatbelt and whatever you can think of. Our sound designers covered the entire range of possible car sounds.
Multi-Channel Recordings for your custom mix
We recorded each car with a multi-channel setup. You get the same take recorded from three different positions (exhaust, engine, interior) to expand your mixing possibilities and to shape the sound exactly the way you want.

What's so special about this sound FX library?
We used our super-quiet test track in South Africa to deliver the most clean and bright recordings to push your projects to the optimum. The test track lies within the South-African desert so we have perfect recording conditions: no traffic noises, asphalted track, no bird noises. We bet you’ll appreciate the clean and bright character of the sounds when putting them in your projects.
What our clients think about Cars - SUVs & Vans
From time to time our clients directly approach us to tell us what they especially like about a specific sound pack.
We’d like to share this with you.
I am a big fan of BOOM libraries and own most of what they've put out. I work with Cartoon Network's Adult Swim and have done many of their shows over the years. I've used BOOM’s libraries on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, 12oz Mouse, Harvey Birdman, and almost exclusively used their car and weapon libraries on a show called Archer, years ago. I'll be starting new shows soon and will be looking to their libraries for a variety of different elements. Working primarily in Animation, I find the need to do a lot of Foley or look to the more obscure sound libraries to help build things that don't always exist in the real world. Libraries like BOOM’s Sci Fi, Magic, Fire, Destruction and the different animal libraries are hugely helpful.
Rover, VW, Honda, Ford, Audi, BMW, Hyundai, Jaguar, Chrysler, Mini, Citreon, Saab etc.
Once downloaded, the varied set of sounds on offer has provided me with invaluable source material to help me achieve the level of sonic detail that my clients expect. Everyday Cars has become my go to library when working on automotive commercials. In fact, I liked it so much that I didn’t 'buy the company' - as a certain Victor Kiam once said - no, I just bought the SUV sound set as well!
UK TV documentaries for BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and 5 etc.
It’s not just a Cars and Vans SFX library, but one that is well thought out, cleverly mic'ed and dedicated to European vehicles covering a spectrum of realistic vehicle ages. A must for any genre of European audio post production. No matter what visual effect a video editor generates, I now have a choice of sounds to match. Clients are simply blown away…BOOM!
