CitiTrax is a collection dedicated to sound designers who need precise control over their urban environments. But don't be fooled by the name. CitiTrax brings you into the total city experience.
CitiTrax is real. It is gritty. It
is HOT. There's no staging. Hundreds of hours of full spectral
stereo recordings made on location were pared down
to the finest 10 hours of environment ever made. the city
comes alive on CitiTrax! The sequences are long and allow
you to fill out full scenes without the looping process
to slow you down. Right from Disc 1, the grit of the city
jumps into your face with busy sidewalks. Two tracks later
there will be a different version with the added dimension
of footsteps. They're real and honest, (NOT over-done and
phony). You can almost tell the pedestrian is wearing a
pair of Bass loafers from the clicking heels as he moves
into perspective and then passes by on a track that's nearly 3 minutes long.
The traffic roars by as horns honk.
The sound of jackhammers and a passing police car add to
the full stereo spectrum, completing the aural illusion.
The camera passes into the doorway of a department store
and the sound crossfades from urban noise to a shopping
mall interior. It doesn't matter if you're working on a film, video,
or radio project... the sound effects in CitiTrax become the environment,
and with your talent and vision, the dream becomes true.
