FUTURISTIC CAR SOUND DESIGN: “AUDI E-TRON E-SOUND”

Posted on 14th April 2012

“Some science-fiction films provided inspiration,” Halbmeir says. “But there was nothing in the real world which offered quite the right sound.”

So with a keyboard, a computer and an electronic throttle pedal, Halbmeir sought to craft a sound that’s both mechanical and musical, combining low-range frequencies that convey power with mid-range tones that are more sporting and fitting of the R8 Etron.
