CASE STUDY 02
Sound is a powerful narrator
I was always mesmerized by hearing the radio communication between a space shuttle and mission control just before launch.
One day, I've decided to create a funny little sound sketch inspired by these launches.
Let's have a listen at how an American and a Russian astronaut deal with some pre-launch complications.
WHAT TOOLS DO I USE?
Rich sound library
My ever-expanding library of sounds gives me the ability to quickly and efficiently create soundscapes without always having to go out and record anew.
I record most of my sounds myself, giving me the utmost confidence in their quality.
Excellent work environment
I use Pro Tools & Reaper as my DAW's on a powerful desktop machine, allowing me to run large projects with the most CPU-demanding plugins running at the same time.
I utilize audio plugins from Waves Audio, Izotope, FabFilter, Soundtoys, Celemony & Native Instruments.
Microphones at the ready
While my sound library allows me to access many sounds very quickly, oftentimes I have to record custom audio for a project either as foley or ambience.
For these purposes, I'm well equipped with both studio & field recording kits ready to go.
At the heart of my equipment lies the excellent Blue Microphones Kiwi, supported by a Neumann TLM 102. For field recording I use a RODE NTG3.
