About the Sound Effects Library

‘BMW X5M’ by Flysound is a comprehensive sound catalogue for this highly-tuned performance champion. The suite of 328 recordings is a systematic compilation authored by a dedicated full-service post-production team, deploying Neumann U87s, Neumann U69, Sonosax, Sound Devices 788Ts, Aaton Cantar-X2s, and further top quality recording equipment.

The subject of the suite is a 750 horsepower high-performance road dominator, while also remaining the dream car for suburban soccer moms. Our BMW X5M and its professional driver have been tracked from a myriad of angles and distances, both external and onboard, from the moment the doors close and a seatbelt fastens, right down the gamut of revs, take-offs, turns, passes-by, skids, pedal slams, handbraking, gear shifting, and panel buttoning galore with all the corresponding actions as the BMW’s fabled “M” division  SUV variant peels away fast, chugs along slowly, or just cruises an everyday commute. In short: Everything you’ll need, all the manoeuvres manifested by the immensely powerful and versatile 4.4 litre bi-turbo gasoline engine, here in this suite.

The symphonic grace of this German masterpiece in motion is captured with orchestra-grade studio equipment and field kit, by professionals, for professionals, ready to be used as authentic sound, ready to be arranged into seamless edits and proper 5.1 post-production. The 96kHz/24bit synced and multi-channel recordings have comprehensive metadata tags giving full position, microphone, and action detail. This catalogue constitutes the canon of sound for BMW X5M (M for motorsport), whether you seek the sound of a high-octane road ruckus or an everyday trip to the supermarket. The suite is parked here, ready to give you the exact audio you need.
