The Ultimate Weapon Sound Design Solution
Krotos Audio, the company behind the innovative Dehumaniser and Reformer product range, are pleased to announce the release of their latest product - Weaponiser.
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.
Weaponiser Fully Loaded is the only all-in-one solution for weapon sound design; providing 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.
Select from and customize up to 1594 weapon recordings, layer and process through four engines, synthesize, add fx, sequence to a built-in timeline and render.
Beat makers and music producers can also access their collection of drum presets to layer up and customise their own loops and kits.
Advanced sound design. VST/AU/AAX Plugin.
Overview of Weaponiser

• Huge range of designed presets for all weapons types, sci-Fi, bullet effects, drums and UI.
• Customized engines to design constituent elements and layers of shots with ease - Onset, Body, Thump and Tail.
• Edit and randomize Envelope or Knob Speed and Level for each bank, activate the Synth button to synthesize and process with FM or AM synthesis, choose from a selection of Carriers and Modulators, Pitch, Duration, Gain and edit Amplitude and Amount Envelopes.
• Use MIDI to trigger your engines and velocity sensitivity to program or perform precise variations.
• Utilise our FX panel and use EQ, Compression, Limiting, Saturation, Ring Modulation, Flanging, Transient Shaping and Noise Gating to amp-up your weapons for that hyper-real sound: Subtly tweak or totally destroy! Chain your FX to effortlessly build up complex signal flows.
• Sequence or offset your sounds to a built-in timeline, allowing for more precise micro-timings between engines.
• Hit the Fire button to audition, activate Burst mode to create automatic weapons from single shot assets, adjust the Fire Rate for creating different loop speeds or press the Drunk button to randomize your timeline sequences, making each shot sound subtly different.
• Easily combine Weaponiser with your existing workflow, or process individual engine outputs and your favourite plugins with ease.
• Break out your weapon elements onto a mixer for intuitive tweaking and dynamic mixing, and quickly render layers for easy export to in-game engines or your DAW.

‘Weaponiser is an extremely cool plugin! I’ve wanted a plugin like this for a while, a clean interface for building guns with a faster interface than doing it all manually on separate DAW tracks’
Bryan Celano – Sound Designer (Destiny 2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Gears Of War 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker)
‘If you need to create an exotic gun, this plug-in will help you create it! The Krotos libraries are clean and powerful. Plus having the ability to load your own sounds gives you endless possibilities! (Don't let the name Weaponiser limit you to using this plug-in to only create weapons!)’
