    This library features a comprehensive collection of exterior and interior sounds from a 2007 Toyota Prius.

    A majority of the recording was conducted at El Mirage Lake, a 6 mile long dry lake bed in the Mojave Desert, 90 miles north of Los Angeles. This barren landscape, unique for its miles of completely flat terrain, is a popular filming location for automobile commercials, and feature films.

    The recording sessions took place late in the evening and early in the morning, when the surroundings were completely silent. An ample collection of exterior pass bys, starts, and stop recordings on pavement, gravel, and dry lake bed are included. Speeds range from 5MPH to 80MPH from the Prius' gas engine pushed to it's max, to only running on the electric motor/battery. Other sounds such as doors, washer/wipers, and engine idling were also captured.

    Sounds were captured with a Sanken CSS-5 Stereo Shotgun mic. The shotgun microphone was mounted in a full Rycote windshield kit and connected to a Sound Devices 702 recording at 96khz.
