The SHIFT Sound Effects Library from JM Sound+Music features over 40 sounds of high performance race cars such as: pass-bys, distant race ambiences, revving, slowing down, accelerating, heavy downshifting, and more.

The Recordist Frank Bry has started up a new SoundVault series:

Presenting the SoundVault series from The Recordist. These sound effects collections are from over 23 years of recording mayhem. The source material is from original 16-Bit 48kHz DAT and up to 24-Bit 96kHz recordings. Mastered and delivered at 24-Bit 48kHz, these highly focused libraries contain rare and sometimes very difficult to obtain categories including ambiences, airplanes, vehicles, nature, foley and more.

The first SoundVault release is Jet Airliner Interior. This collection contains sounds from inside four airplanes during flight. Most were recorded in the mid 1990s when flights were many and people were few (those were the days!). Three of the interiors were recorded with the Sonic Studios DSM head worn microphones to a PDR-1000 DAT machine at 16-Bit 48kHz. The fourth was recorded in 2009 on a PCM D-50. All the sounds were edited and mastered at 24-Bit 48kHz.

The aircraft recorded are: Boeing 737, Boeing 757, Mcdonnell Douglas DC-10 and a Mcdonnell Douglas MD-80. I was lucky enough to be on flights with very few travelers so the voice activity is minimal. There are sections that contain voices from the pilots, flight attendants and passengers.
