I got asked the question do I lose out on sound design work because I only have a stereo setup. This would be true if I didn’t collaborate with people that had a 5.1 surround sound setup. Collaboration is an important part in freelance life and especially for bigger projects with tighter deadlines.

I have written a few different articles on how car manufacturers tweak and manipulate the sound of their cars to make them more pleasing, both inside and out. Well now you can KickStart a new version of the plugin and play toy that is meant to give you the real experience of a V8 or V12 engine.
So I wanted to start finding more articles for you guys and gals that included sound art, since it isn’t exactly mainstream. So introducing the first nugget of gold i dug up from the web, courtesy of sound + design. Haven is a very cuddly way to listen to the wind as all shall be explained in the video below
It looks very slick and sounds even more futuristic than Tron. The trailer for it below gives bites of the new Harley Davison sound.
We shall see more and more of the electric motor sounds in the future as everyone makes the switch. I wrote an earlier article about how cars are already designed with sound in mind, all as part of creating a driving experience that will add more value to the car. This is the same idea that is being implied by electric motor designers that want to turn the tide of boredom and weakness that is associated to electric motors. The quiet, slow, heavy car sounds of the past.
Words can obviously affect the way we feel. I recently came across an article that actually puts more emphasis on the individual letters in a given word rather than the meaning as a whole. The main take away from researchers in Germany was the power of vowels.
During the research they wired up participants to measure changes in their facial muscles linked with smiling and frowning. Out of all the letters it was found that the letter ‘i’ was the most positive, particular a long ‘i’. To me this seems obvious when we think of the meaning of the letter its self, for it is also a word really.
Probably the most famous beast along with King Kong is Godzilla. The sheer scale and power is unrivaled along with his/her roar!
There isn’t actually a real world laser sound that exsists. This is because its a different spectrum than molecules in the air or other medium that sound energy is transmitted. This is why the sun doesn’t make a noise when it comes and goes behind clouds.
