Test drive the sounds of your dream car and enjoy the SoundRacer engine sounds.
The greatest car sounds ever heard in a family car!
Now you can try out the SoundRacer sounds in your smartphone.
Experience some of the coolest engine sounds in the world. Test drive your dream car with your smart phone. The sounds are recorded from famous sports cars.
Choose between these great engine sounds:
Big American V8 muscle car - real Shelby sound
Exotic Italian V10 sports car - real Lamborghini sound
Legendary Italian V12 sports car - real Ferrari sound
Thrilling Japanese V10 supercar - real Lexus LFA sound
Classic American V-Twin motorcycle - real Harley sound
There are two different driving modes that you can try in the free version. Simulate the engine sound with the manual or automatic drive modes.
In the paid app you now have the exciting OBD-II mode where the sound follows the engine speed in the car you are driving. You can also simulate the engine sound with the manual, automatic, paddle or tilt modes.
The OBD-II app experience is as fun and exciting as driving a car with a real SoundRacer product but there are a couple of differences:
One feature in the app is that you can change the ratio between the engine rpm and the sound rpm. If, for example, you are driving a low rpm diesel it can be set so that engine sound goes on 6000 rpm when the car engine is doing 2500 rpm.
The sound and rpm following in the app is depending on the OBD-II adapter and phone performance and may be different than in the SoundRacer FM transmitter.
The experience of the free app is naturally not as fun and exciting as driving a real car with a real SoundRacer product or the OBD-II mode but you will get a hint of it.
HOW TO USE:
When you touch the Menu button on the screen or press the Menu button on the phone, the Menu will show up at the bottom of the screen. You can then select Information, Links, Settings or Share. Return from these functions to the app, by pressing the Back button of the phone.
Send link to the app to your friends.
The Engine screen is the starting screen. Here you may select your favorite engine with the tabs along the upper rim of the screen.
The next step is to drive. Touch the Select Drive Mode button and navigate to the Driving screen. There you can select the driving mode of choice, with the tabs along the upper rim of the screen.
Start driving by touching the Start/Stop button and hear the starter and the engine start up. Then you can accelerate with a touch control of choice, depending on the selected driving mode.
By touching the Start/Stop button again you turn off the engine sound.
If you touch the Select Engine button, you will navigate back to the Engine screen, and there you may select another engine sound.
The volume of the engine sound is changed with the volume buttons of the phone. The sounds in the app are the same as in the SoundRacer products, genuine recordings from famous sports cars. Naturally, the great sound experience when driving a real car with a SoundRacer product can never be achieved with an app.
To make the SoundRacer app sound at its best, use earphones or connect the phone to speakers.
The Welcome screen that is displayed when you start the SoundRacer app can be hidden. In Menu it is possible to uncheck it under Settings.
