Trailer Sound Design: Tips & Tricks
Wednesday April 1, 2020
5 Tips for Designing Sound for a Trailer

Designing sounds for a trailer is a challenging task. The goal is to grab the attention of the viewer so that they cannot wait to see the full release. At the same time, you need to be careful not to fall into various trailer sound cliches and make the trailer fade away into the sea of sameness. Did I also mention that it’s all probably on a very limited time scale? Did it suddenly get hot in here?

Fear not, as this blog post is here to help you on your trailer-making journey (especially if you are just starting out and feel a bit overwhelmed), and – hopefully – alleviate some of the stress and maybe even inspire you to consider some approaches.

Over the course of this post, I’ll be looking at general best practices, ideas and we’ll also take a look at how software and libraries from Krotos can help you get your creative gears going and let you work faster and more efficient, leaving more time for the fun parts of the job. More specifically, I’ll show some workflow capabilities of Weaponiser and focus on content of the Trailers Library.

Note: I have also created some cinematic hits and whooshes for the purpose of this demonstration. You can download the original assets for free and use them for whatever you fancy!

Tip 1: Dynamics = Suspense

One of the common pitfalls that sound designers need to watch out for is the ‘louder means better’ design approach. I love a powerful sound just like any other person but I’d like to propose that the power comes from INCREASING the dynamic range of your content, not decreasing it through overcompression. To show this, we’ll take a look at the first scene accompanying our blog post: the server room shutdown.

Anticipation Phase

All the machinery in the room gradually shuts down before the red light comes on. I’ll use some content from our User Interface Library to create sounds of the machines and then I’ll pitch it down as the lights go out. I have rendered some instances of the UI Glitched Machine preset in Weaponiser. I have spammed the Fire button and now we have loads of glitchy computer beeps that will serve as the main chunk of our sounds. We will keep this in a relatively soft/medium intensity and fade the volume as the lights gradually go down. This will create space for the blast. It is the big jump in amplitude that will help us sell the change of light. If everything was on a similar level, we just wouldn’t hear that much of a difference.

Blast

The lights go down completely and then… BOOM. I wanted to create an association of the red light representing something ominous and therefore created some shrieking synth blasts. I have remixed the preset Cinematic Transition 1 from the Trailers Library by adding the new impacts.

Image 1: Cinematic Transition 1 preset with added content.

Now I have the main component of the hit sound done with one click of the button in Weaponiser. I have also rendered all the other tabs of Weaponiser as separate outputs so that I can still control the mix of the individual pieces.

Image 2: Separate renders of two Weaponiser remixed presets.

Aftershock

Right after the initial blast, I lowered the volume significantly, leaving only some ominous drone tones and corrupted UI bleeps. This part is meant to keep us on the edge and sell the idea that something evil has settled in this room.

And just like that, we’re done with the first part! We have created an impactful transition by letting the main sound breathe.


P.s. I’m getting some serious Control vibes from the red light.

Tip 2: Layering is your best friend

Layering is a fantastic way of creating unique sounds, especially if time constraints are not allowing for full fledged design. In this part, we’ll be combining three different presets from the Cinematic Trailers library to create the soundscape of a pirate ship scene.

As the camera pans, we start off close to the first ship, slowly moving away from it and focusing more and more on the second one. I wanted to create a sense of peril and adventure and give some character to both ships to distinguish them. Thus, I have chosen three sounds to represent what I have identified as 3 protagonists of the scene: the first ship, the sea and the second ship.

The first ship introduces the feeling of danger by using the dark horn blast of the Thriller Transition 1 preset, which fits really well with the design of the ship (that’s a lot of skeletons). Next, we’ll use the rattly textures of the Adventure Drone preset to symbolise the sea as the play-field for our dangerous adventure. This part adds to the mystery and suspense of the scene. The second ship represents power as we now see that this is an organised group (or maybe they will fight each other? Who knows!). A string theme taken from the String Stinger 1 preset will help us convey the sense of pirate might. Layered and crossfaded together, they give us a unique sound scene:

Insert some sea ambiences (why yes, by layering!) to ground the listening experience and our second scene is ready!

Tip 3: Embrace Silence

Lack of sound can be as gripping as an explosion. Sometimes even more! If you’ve watched it, THAT hyperspace jump from The Last Jedi comes to mind. It is most likely an evolutionary trait that makes us as attentive to the quick snappy sounds (as we needed to watch out from snapping twigs, or something that is snapping the twig, more precisely) as to the sudden lack of sound (something suddenly stopped moving). This has been used in cinema for quite some time, i.e. in the outdoor dinner preparation scene in Once Upon The Time In The West. We’re going to take the rapid planet close-up clip and play around with our listening expectations.

Riser/Swell

First, we’re going to saturate our ears with a very rich riser that will follow the planetary approach. This will create a certain expectation for the follow-up sound that we will break (a bit). To create the sound of the swell, I’ve used two instances of the String Swell Short preset from the Cinematic Trailer library, along with some original content. The final riser sounds like this:

Cut Impact

Now we’re going to abruptly cut almost all of the sounds used in the swell and leave only a transient of the hit and a low-end drop. This will create a feeling of void which fits perfectly with the space theme of the clip and grabs our attention as we feel the sudden lack of sound.

Tip 4: Shape through automation

Parameter automation is essential when dealing with repetitive content and the boxer scene is the perfect example of that. In this scene, we will be creating variation using some handy Weaponiser features and then we will shape our scene through various levels of automation.

Asset creation

There’s a lot of punching in this clip and we need to make it varied. Tracklaying would take quite some time so we will use some of the features of Weaponiser to get a wide range of non-repetitive assets by making a fresh preset. I have taken various assets of boxing pad work and added them to separate banks in Weaponiser. Then I have set those banks to randomise so that the plugin does not play them back in the same order. As we have four different banks, five assets each, we now have 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 625 possible asset combinations! To make it even better, we’ll slightly randomise the playback speed of the sample to get pitch variation. I think we are covered for this scene!

Image 3: new padwork patch

Now we need to sync the impacts. To make our life easier, we’ll setup a MIDI item that will send information to the padwork patch we have just created to cue the sound on the timeline, giving us perfect sync and loads of variation.

Image 4: MIDI item triggering Weaponiser playback

Afterwards, I used some designed impacts to make a second pass and various natural and abstract whooshes to make the core sounds of the scene.

P.s. I used the content of our Battle Bundle library for the natural hits and whooshes

Asset Automation

Now we will take a look at the micro-level of the automation in this scene. As we used Weaponiser to quickly sync our assets, now we should have time to fine tune the automation of whooshes and hits. I’m changing the pan and volume parameters of the whooshes and I’m setting the punches in the proper locations corresponding to the position on the screen. This gives us a sense of movement and breathes life into the scene.

Image 5: snippet of the automation curves in the scene

Shaping the Scene

With individual hits automated, we can now look at the bigger picture. The video speeds up, starting with slow motion and going to normal speed at the end. I have created two sets of assets – abstract hits and natural sounding boxing. Natural does not necessarily mean ‘realistic’; we can hear punches, even though the person is air boxing. The impacts did, however, fit the scene style more and I do feel that the task of a sound designer is to enhance the reality and not represent it (Sarah Connor’s footsteps in Terminator 2, anyone?). We’re using automation to crossfade between the abstract and natural soundscapes, shaping our scenes with volume parameters.

Tip 5: Sound Sets Tone

In my opinion, the last clip is a great example of the enormous capabilities of sound for setting the tone. The video itself is quite neutral. If you watch it without any sound, your emotional associations can be quite varied. Therefore, it is up to the sonic layer to determine the emotional impact of this clip.

For the purposes of this blog post, I’ve chosen to focus on the feelings of danger, distance and isolation. Therefore, I used the Horror Transition 3 and 4 presets, combined with a distant Horror Hit 2 (this feels very Alien, doesn’t it?). This is also a great example of the fact that you sometimes do not need many sounds to wrap up a scene. Those three instances do the job really well and the sounds are only 3 clicks away!

To demonstrate how different our perception of the scene can be, compare how the scene would feel like with the soundscape of the pirate ship clip:

For me, the second clip is something much more akin to action/superhero trailer. All thanks to the sound!

Conclusion

Throughout this blog, we’ve looked at different ways in which we can bring the trailer to another level through audio and how to work effectively by using various ready-made presets in Weaponiser and by designing our own patches. We have also looked at some general approaches as well. Presented scenes cover a wide range of environments and content genres and therefore we can safely assume that the ideas presented here will be of use regardless of the type of content you are working on.

If you’re interested in trailer sound, I do suggest this great podcast by Twenty Thousand Hertz (warning: you won’t hear the trailers the same ever again):

Behind The Scenes: How To Create Acid Gun Presets In Weaponiser 1.2.0
Wednesday March 11, 2020
Behind the Scenes: Acid Gun

The Weaponiser Fully Loaded 1.2.0 update brings a lot to the table in terms of performance and usability but it also comes with 17 new presets and 106 new assets. In this blog post, we are going to dissect some of the new content to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how Krotos’ sound design team works. This will also be a useful case study of how to make a coherent set of audio content.

Specifically, we are going to be talking about the newest addition to our Sci-Fi armory – the Acid Gun.

What's new in Weaponiser 1.2.0 High Concept

Designing content for a sound library is always an exercise in balance – you want your sounds to be as broadly useful as possible but you also want them to have style and character. I like to visualise the gun I am creating. No content here yet, but our visualisation is going to influence the final outcome. Here’s what I came up with:

Acid Gun resembles a mix between an assault rifle and a shotgun. The acid projectiles are loaded by means of a canister. The gun has several different fire modes and needs to be charged to perform special attacks. It spews green acid balls that cut through everything in its path.
Note that this is still pretty general and it’s just for my reference so I have a design to lean on. You can have a completely different idea of how the gun looks and that’s perfectly fine!

Firing

The main component of the gun is the acid blast, so some fizzy, bubbly sound was needed. I brought a couple of soda cans to the studio with malicious intent. Since we are an Edinburgh-based company, Irn Bru, the liquid essence of Scotland, was used.

P.s. If you’ve never seen this before, try it. You’ll either love it or hate it.

The energy version of the drink has a distinct shape that makes an interesting hollow twang sound if you punch it. We’re going to pierce this can to make the main part of our sound. The explosion of acid has to be forceful and huge to make the listener sure that he’s hearing a powerful weapon. As always, high quality source material is a key to a good design. Here’s how piercing of a can sounds like:

P.S. The soda blast totally did not hit the other sound recordist straight in the face.

P.P.S. Sorry Andrew.

This sounds interesting on its own, but for this gun, we want something a bit more of a Sci-Fi feel. Some flanging, frequency shifting and tremolo will help us with that.

To increase the futuristic feel of the gun, I created some additional plasma and laser shots using sound synthesis. They are all available with the update!

The gun also needs a tail sound. If you fill a container with a fizzy drink and then let a couple of drips hit the liquid surface from a height, you get a very interesting dissolving sound.

Some processing and we have a sound of the acid ball moving away from us.

Handling and Foley

There’s much more to a weapon than just firing. There’s a plethora of reloading, handling and general gun Foley sounds that can be created to flesh out our weapon. I tried to get as many sounds from the cans as possible. Tearing them to pieces, squashing them, opening them after various degrees of shaking. This gave me a nice selection of multi-purpose sounds. As they are made with the same source material, they create a feeling of cohesive whole, which we want for a sample pack. Here’s a can opening sound:

If we shrink it by using time-stretch, we can get something that will work really well as a sound of attaching the acid canister to the gun.

Audio processing is going to be very helpful here. We want to convey the feeling of weight and power of the gun. The gun has to feel heavy and that means that low-end enhancement across all assets is going to help us achieve that. Using similar processing also adds to the feeling of uniformity.

Mangling the soda can yielded interesting results. We can convey the feeling of various parts of the gun moving, adding life to it with the mechanical layer. Then we can combine those with some actual gun Foley and synthesised content to create full sounds. If we want to, for example, make a recharge sound, a rising synth and some tremolo will also help us.

Summary

Final stage of creating the acid gun presets is going to be adding some actual gunshots. Adding real-world sounds grounds our experience and adds to the suspension of disbelief. As this is a shotgun/rifle hybrid, I used SPAS-12 and AK-47 recordings, available in Weaponiser Fully Loaded. Here’s a short audio scene with the presets in action:

By using interesting source material, original and distinct sounds were designed. They create a cohesive whole and could be used in a game or motion picture. Having general principles for audio processing helps with glueing the different presets together so that when we hear the showcase above, it feels like one gun. Although the weapon has a style, it is generic enough to be flexible. Additionally, as what I am showing is used in Weaponiser, you are not stuck with how I wanted the gun to sound but you can pick and choose whichever elements you want and add them to your designs!

If you have any further questions regarding the design of this weapon, do not hesitate to contact me.

P.s. The main inspiration behind using the soda cans is this fantastic article by Oscar Coen.

Roni Size X Krotos Concept
Thursday February 27, 2020
Roni Size x Krotos Concept

Mercury award-winning music producer Roni Size’s carreer has been about building something new from whatever was around him. From Bristol youthclub parties, through the white heat of rave and the founding moments of jungle and drum’n’bass, to transforming underground electronic music into something that could be played by a live band on the biggest arena and festival stages, he has at each stage created completely afresh.

Roni Size Presets in Concept

Roni Size contributed a selection of 16 presets to Concept, which come ready to bend, twist and transformed into something new. Use these patches as your starting point to add intense DnB wobbles, driving jungle basslines and quirky synth sounds to your own track with Concept.

Have a listen through a selection of these patches such as Bass Station, Bake Off Bass, Flying Saucer, or Gated Organ below:

How Roni Size uses Concept in the studio

We visited Roni Size in his Bristol studio to find out more about his background, and how he uses Concept in his set-up. Watch the full interview here.

“Tweak It is like playing poker”

The Tweak It customisation system in Concept lets you generate endless changes to your patch. Roni Size uses the feature for inspiration and to create new variations of his patches: “you just Tweak it, it’s like playing poker”.

Using Audio Input to route through two tracks of drum breaks

Concept allows you to feed multiple audio signals into the plugin, and use these as modulation sources with the Audio Input. Try running two drum tracks through it to create dynamic rhythmical patches!

“The best way I’ve used is by routing it back through a bus, how you’d set up a sidechain. I like putting two tracks of drum breaks through it, and then running it straight back through!”

“XY Capture is really cool!”

Concept’s unique XY Capture lets you draw in your modulation movements to let it affect any parameter in the plugin to achieve interesting results. Roni Size uses these for his evolving reverb or to add saturation to his track.
