Generative motor noise

Hi

Does anyone knows if its possible to generate a motor noise like car driving games, where the noise from the engine varies with the input of a variable like “speed”.

Im doing an installation with electric toy cars and it would be super nice if i found a way to make the motor noise.

thanks

Hi!

Designing Sound by Andy Farnell is full of examples on how to generate natural sounds from scratch, it’s all in Pure Data, but would be a great place to start, plus there is an ofxPD addon that might be an interesting avenue.
