SCI-FI Mirco Sound Pack

I am sharing a collection of designed SCI-FI game audio SFX I created to support a friends 3rd year university project.

This small sound pack consists of 8 bespoke sounds including 3 detailed weapons SFX fit for your futuristic arsenal. 

Feel free to use these sounds in any of your projects as if they were your own. If you do end up using them I would love for you to share it with me so as I can how you have implemented them in your own work!

Sound Particles

This composition was created to explore the capabilities of the software Sound Particles for creating dense and varied crowd noises and atmospheres from a limited amount of amount of recordings.

For those who don't know it, at it's most basic Sound Particles is a software models a 3D space and allows the user to choose to create any number of sound emitters loaded with whatever sounds they wish, that can be captured with virtual microphone with the space. The software is also packed with a host of audio processors and features a refreshingly difficult but objective intuitive interface.

 

Sound Particles is a truly unique piece of software with a whole range of creative applications just waiting to be explored. On top of that it is perhaps the best tool I have encountered in order to combat time consuming track laying and restrictive track counts for larger projects.

Electromagnetic Fields

Magnet Opus Transducer Microphone -
00:00 / 00:00

This nifty device you can see on the left is known as the Magnet Opus Transducer Microphone. If you are wondering what exactly that is perhaps the simplest way to explain it is it is a device that is able to hear (record) Electromagnetic Fields, it works in the same way as a single coil pickup does in an electric guitar expect for the fact this device has a much lower noise floor. Have you ever been playing your electric guitar with your phone in your pocket and heard that chirping sound just before you receive a message.. well this device is made specially to record those sorts of signals.

And as you can imagine this device can be a lot of fun and very useful with applications for sound design and even used for textures in music.

Below I have attached a recording I have taken with it so you can hear exactly what it does.

 

 

I have also been experimenting with using these recordings for granular synthesis. With Ableton's free maxforlive granular II device I have created a little synth patch that can be used to create bespoke high tech UI sounds. Feel free to download it for yourself for use in your own sound design work. Link below: Download UI Machine
