Happy to have worked on the Lego Star Wars franchise doing the sound design, mixing and music editing. The best part was doing the music editing because it was editing the original John Williams tracks with filler and everything! Yes, there is some amazing work by the master himself, which is condensed into a tight and cool score when you buy it in iTunes, but how about all those small, very low in the mix parts between those amazing tracks? Yep, got to hear those and edit them. Which where still amazing from a film composer point of view. Movies have a lot of music that do not end up on the official soundtrack releases. If you want an example, try buying the DVD for The Matrix which has an option to listen to the movie playing only the music.
Our vision of a dystopian future slowly fulfilling itself became more real with the GDPR (European privacy laws) . And with a jealous eye we see how our EU brothers are fighting what seems to be common sense; Do not let evil corporations use or sell our private information in a way we do not like. Humans are not products and we value our privacy.
And we do it (and have being doing so since the beginning) for a simple reason; we also buy music related products for our own personal musical projects and we do not want our privacy to be compromised. So we applied that common sense philosophy to our web store.
Recorded some po’ po’ sounds in downtown Los angeles for our hybrid sample libraries. Some cool loud metal doors, barrels, rusted motors. We are aiming for multi velocity field recordings for a more expressive instrument.
Gear: Zoom H6 @ 96k + AKG Ck98.
Just a quick update for the start of 2018. We are working on several kontakt libraries. Its always fun to “sound design” (used as a verb:) stuff but makig it spotless clean and perfect for consumer release is another level of detail that takes some time. Not to mention the scirpting, marketing and “life”.
Still with this “editing too much face” we couldnt be happier doing these libraries, soundsets and loops.
2018 is looking good!
Talking about Blade Runner 2049… we are happy to have provided some custom sounds for the TV spot trailers.
U-he’s Retro-1 is truly amazing but now Repro-5 is coming. Great Poly soft synth and one of the most realistic Polysynth we’ve heard yet. We got a pre release copy and working on some cool sounds.
We are huge fans of sci-fi and this classic film has to be one of the pinnacles of sci-fi standards.
A lot of our graphics are based on this dystopian future of movies based on this sci-fi classic.
In honor of this film and the new Blade Runner 2049 release, we are throwing a flash sale.
Our individual soundsets are $20.49.. (of course!)
