TAXI # S220512SC SOUND DESIGN-Driven, SCI-FI-Style INSTRUMENTAL CUES

Post by follytree » Tue May 10, 2022 10:35 am

Greetings, composers!

I have two questions about a current listing: TAXI # S220512SC SOUND DESIGN-Driven, SCI-FI-Style INSTRUMENTAL CUES

1. The brief calls for sound design. Does this mean we should develop a sound design bed over which an editor might spot impact sounds? Or should we include impacts sounds? I watched the Live video addressing this, but am still a little unclear.

2. I love working in Omnisphere and will sometimes use patches from 3rd party sound designers. I perform the parts - and use modulation and tweaking; is this "original" enough for the brief? Or must I use strictly my own samples. I would like to use a little of both, but am not sure if this would be considered original.

Thanks so much for your thoughts.

Happy composing!

Do the reference files include impacts? If not, then avoid them. I often use impacts on downbeats of new sections, often with a swell or rise of some sort to lead up to it.

Regarding the sounds, you are fine using stock sounds from libraries, there is no need to create everything from scratch.

Thanks, Paulie. Love your idea of the impact on the downbeat of a new section, preceded with a preceding swell/riser. I appreciate your advice!
