Stock Car Extreme: V8 audio comparison

Nov 29, 2014

Reiza Studios published a new video on their Youtube channel showcasing the sounds of their sim.


The video compares the sound of a real V8 stock car (Thiago Camilo's, to be precise) to the simulator's recreation. The result is, if you ask me, stunning - I immediately recognized the real audio as one of the game's V8s.

It seems this audio was recorded at a rainy practice session at Cascavel, since wet conditions allow for a smoother rev build up in the engine.

Do you think Stock Car Extreme is a winner in the audio department? Sound off in the comments or in our Game Stock Car Extreme forum.

It's pretty impressive, so realistic when in game.

Those cars are so immersive to race! Come join us at the GSCE club here at RD to race the monsters!
I would but there aren't many V8 races at good circuits that I want to race at in the Club. ;) Most of the races are V's or something similar.

Yes I missed it because I was either racing in the AC club or doing something else. But it is usually only 1 a week in the V8's. I will hopefully do some V8 races when they crop up. They are the only class ( and the BES mod) that I like driving in GSCE.

GSC have one of the most realistic engine sounds....& these V8 are stunning!, but I think the best is of R3E...having in count all the environment sounds

Very very good, but the problem to me is that the comparison is flawed by default. My experience from driving cars and watching/listening to recordings of the same is that recordings fall really short in replicating the experience of being in the car, the sound you experience tend to be so much more all encompassing, so much more brutal and raw than what most recordings are capable of reproducing. Ofc most of us have no experience in driving these V8s, but I expect them to be an assault on my ears, and I find that in most cases they sound ok-ish, but they lack something which is hard to put into words.

3 dimensional sound and reverb is whats missing. Also to note that most of the "raw" sound is muffled to a driver racing in a helmet. I wish they added that effect in cockpit mode.

However, on topic, yes the SCE extreme audio is amazing. I truly hope to see them in the future making new games on newer engines. Their passion is nothing short of amazing and you can see it in SCE.

I have this annoying distortion sounds in GSCE while shifting or in higher speed which is killing a lot of the immersion for me. Is this only my problem or it´s supposed to be like that?

On the first part thats the basic flaw in any and all gaming, barring perhaps the future with VR. We have a flat screen that shows things that look correct, but don't look right. Same with sound.

Still, no reason you can't put ear plugs in and set your speakers to an unsafe decibel level. That'd probably be a decent compromise. :p

Indeed, but my ear drums cant take too much these days

Any sound card that has an equalizer should be able to mimic a muffled helmet sound fairly well - no?

I also think a lot has to do with your sound setup. Cheap onboard sound will never get close.
We tend to spend a lot of money on PC, wheel, etc. but a really good sound system is just as important.
