Recording airport car driving sounds and interstate sound effects OC to LA
These interior driving sound effects were a sound request from a fellow sound designer who knew we are in Los Angeles. He worked on a current project and was looking for the typical interstate sounds from Los Angeles.
At the time of this recording we were living in Costa Mesa and I needed to pick up Libby in Silverlake which made this a perfect time to capture sounds on the 45 miles ride up north during the night (it took about an hour to get there.)
How I recorded the Driving Sound Effects
Before I hit the road in our 2008 Toyota Yaris, I fixed the pistol grip from Rode between the handlebars with tape. The main concern I had were the vibrations but the pistol grip shock mount is designed to reduce handling noise while recording. It did a very good job. The microphone I use is an Audio-Technica mono microphone. This version is already discontinued.
More about interstates and highway sounds
If you are from Los Angeles or you been there already perhaps you’ve paid attention to the sounds of the highways and interstates sound different from one another! Using different concrete, patched roads, holes and of course to speed of your vehicle changed the sound of the driving. If you drive on a bridge, the sound will change as well.
Especially in the US if you change lanes you hear a loud rumbling sound. This happens each time you hit one of these little white dots on the road.
Also, if you drive in a different car, van, or truck you will notice a different sound. Depending on the tires, it will create a variety of sound effects.
For me was it important to capture these recordings at night. Driving the same route at daytime, would have meant being stuck in rush hour (but hey, thats a different sound and if you work on a film project and your actors have to stuck in traffic, that’s perfect too.)
