Kicking off our brand-new series “Noisy Places”, TRANSPORTATION is a comprehensive ambient collection with a broad spectrum of crystal-clear vehicle recordings.

Background Vehicle Recordings
All recordings – often loopable – have been either performed from a distance or exhibit enough subtlety, atmosphere and unobtrusiveness to be perfectly suited for all kinds of background settings and applications, giving them a serene, almost naturalistic feel.
Authentic Ambience Toolkit
Build your acoustic backdrop that sounds organic and grounded while keeping the familiar human touch and making the listener more aware of their acoustic surroundings. While a good soundtrack can help in introducing a world to the audience, a believable acoustic setting completes the arrival, especially when standing on its own – one of this library’s major strenghts, next to its ability to blend in with more frontal sound design and its varied line-up of motorized vehicles: On the road, rails, water and airborne with both interior ambiences and exterior recordings.
Acoustic Purity and Flexibility
TRANSPORTATION is one of the most flexible ambient libraries, thanks to its acoustic purity and isolation of targeted sounds, allowing you to design exactly what you need without any unwanted, arbitrary noise to worry about. A strong addition to your sound pool that will enhance, or perhaps even replace earlier designs.
What we recorded
In order to capture high-quality vehicle ambiences, we looked for desolate places that would only allow for one type of vehicle at a time and otherwise leave a minimum acoustic footprint on the recordings. That way we managed to isolate different types and movements of trains, road vehicles, boats, planes and even F1 race cars.
BOOM Library sound FX come as WAV files, meaning you can import and work with them in any software that can handle this file type. Here are the most common audio and video editing software tools that work perfectly with our sound FX
- Logic Pro
- Ableton Live
- Pro Tools
Video Editing Software
- Final Cut Pro X
- After Effects
- Vegas Pro
- Media Composer
Rich Metadata Embedded
To provide you with the fastest and easiest workflow possible, all files contain extensive metadata like file description & keywords to quickly find the sounds you’re looking for. Metadata can be read and processed by audio management tools. Some digital audio workstations feature an included search tool that can also read embedded metadata. Here are the most common audio management tools:
