For my Masters final project I am creating a sample pack of car sounds. I've been making test recordings and taking advice wherever I can get it - there are some very friendly and helpful people about! As part of the project I've put together a Market research survey to find out what people want and expect from a sample library.

I wondered if you guys might have the time (5 mins) to help me with my survey. To thank you for your help I am planning on holding a draw to win the sample pack once it has been completed.

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance everyone! Rich.

Thanks again to everyone who took part in the survey. I have published a summary of the results on my website at http://rsaudiostore.com/survey-results/ . The market research led to me recording a Renault Clio in the end. You can hear clips from the final sample pack (and buy it :-) ) from the website too. Thank so much for your help.


  • filled one in! Interesting questions, really made me think about 5.1/7.1 surround samples too, as I think people would buy these more, especially if recorded well with 5.1 mics. – Blue Owl Studios UK Jun 23 '12 at 14:42

  • I can't thank you guys enough for taking part, it's a real help. All of the extra comments are great too! If you haven't taken the survey already, it really is interesting to hear your opinions! Thanks again, Rich. – user3996 Jun 25 '12 at 15:36
