Sound of Speed behind the scenes
Raw mountain bike videos are rightfully all the rage these days. The unadulterated action is complemented by some glorious sounds of soft rubber tearing through the earth and unfettered by any kind of soundtrack.
Those aurally exquisite sound effects aren't captured easily, so we decided to give you an exclusive insight into the 'sound design' process behind our latest Sound Of Speed video with Eddie Masters and Dave McMillan (aka The Foley Artists). 
The Foley Artists decided not to reply upon the mundane world of equalisers and mixing desks however. Instead, they rented a room and set about recording the desired sound effects in a slightly more 'practical' way... 
Now that you know how we recorded the roars of mountain bike riding, you should witness the boys' hard work by watching the finished clip in all its glory.
