Sound Design Tool Creates Weapon Sounds

Krotos Audio Weaponiser offers a one-stop solution for film and game composers      19/02/18

Krotos Audio has announced the release of Weaponiser, a VST/AU/AAX plug-in, which they describe as the only all-in-one solution for weapon sound design.

A spokesperson told us, “Weapon sounds are some of the most commonly used sound effects in AAA games and major Hollywood films. However, authentic weapon sounds can be one of the most challenging categories of sound effects to capture or create.”

Krotos Audio says that Weaponiser provides a powerful and efficient workflow, a comprehensive library of professionally recorded weapons, carefully designed presets with high-end, real-time synthesis and unparalleled sound quality – making it the ultimate ‘go to’ tool-kit for creating dynamic assets.
