There will probably be some people who will squirm at the concept of Weaponiser, on the principal that it appears to be a showcase for a wide range of gunfire sounds. With current political tensions concerning the issue I can’t say I’m massively happy about its core raison d’etre either. But the fact remains that due to film, video games and TV – and some music, I guess – the sound of the weapon is in high demand. So its hard to really blame Krotos Audio for answering this need. Weapon-fire has been a core requriement for sound designers and composers for decades, and there’ll always be a need for the sound of gunfire as people tell stories that involve it.

About MusicTech

He’s the man who revolutionised modern film scores with a creative approach to music-making, sonic experimentation and sound utilisation that helps some of the biggest directors to tell their stories. This month we’re overwhelmingly honoured to speak to one of the greatest composers on the planet: Hans Zimmer. In our ten-page interview we talk to Hans about his recent work with Spitfire Audio – co-creating a remarkable assortment of production and studio tools – as well as his incredible career in soundtracking. Elsewhere this issue, Dave Gale takes us through the legacy of the vocoder, we report on this year’s Superbooth show in Berlin and speak to its progenitor Andreas Schneider about his views on modular synthesis and its integral place in the music technology world. We’ve also got our usual tutorials, tips and reviews. Enjoy the issue!
