Bring your vehicles to life with confidence, precision, and world-class quality.

The Odyssey Collection - Vehicles

Cars are everywhere in film, games, and society in general, but many sound artists lack the resources to tackle vehicle-centric projects. Whether the obstacle is finding recordings of a specific model, matching unique angles, or running out of material for the quick cuts of a high-speed chase – sound designing vehicles without the proper sonic ingredients can be a huge waste of your time and distract your audience from the story.

Developed in exclusive collaboration with Academy Award®-winning sound editors, Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Richard L. Anderson (The Lion King, Edward Scissorhands), The Odyssey Collection: Vehicles (OV) brings you an unrivaled professional vehicle sound effects library to help cover your needs for any scene. Recorded with the invaluable resources of a Hollywood budget while creating the sound for hundreds of major feature films, OV features over 250 different vehicles – from sports cars and luxury SUVs to street bikes and military trucks – expertly captured from varied perspectives with methodical workups to streamline your workflow.

What is a workup? A workup is a thorough series of recordings of the same subject from many different perspectives, angles, and distances. To ensure you have the sounds needed 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.

As the latest library in The Odyssey Collection following Odyssey Essentials (OE) and Odyssey Expanded (OX), OV presents a new approach to sound library curation – combining the comprehensive offering of a general library with the pinpoint focus of a specialty library – all while championing Odyssey’s renowned and inspiring quality, reliable breadth, intuitive organization, and cinematic character.

“This library has been an essential tool for me my entire life, and this idea of workups and vehicle recordings is a big part of its philosophy. It makes getting the job done that much more elegant, professional, and high fidelity.”Mark Mangini

What sound artists are saying about The Odyssey Collection:

Half the battle of a car chase sequence is getting a fully loaded set of vehicle sounds. Odyssey has those and more. It's a great go-to as my first point of call for car sounds.

Julian Slater Baby Driver (Re-recording Mixer, Sound Designer, Supervising Sound Editor)

These are the kind of sounds that I’m always looking for - everything has character and a great cinematic feel. I’m amazed by the variety, quality and organization.

Will Files

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.

Chris Diebold Spider-Man: Homecoming (Sound Effects Editor)

The workups are really detailed..from inside and outside perspectives, to things like putting automatic windows up and button clicks on the dashboard.

Derek Brown Game Sound Designer

Every sound is very rich sounding, and at the same time detailed. Every time I’ve used it, I’m always able to find what I need very quickly with its well-organized metadata.

The Odyssey Collection is completely killer. I can't even tell you how easy it has made the last three projects I worked on compared to how I was working before.
