meltedsounds has released whoosh, a sound design instrument for Reaktor that enables you to create whoosh and pass-by effects. It is possible to precisely design sounds varying from whistling wind whooshes to air ripping engine pass-bys or completely over the top granular sci-fi effects.
The included Doppler effects engine was designed from the ground up to physically model the acoustic phenomena of an object that approaches, passes, and recedes from an observer. The individual playback engines, the source mixer and Doppler engine can be manipulated in synchronized connection to each other. This makes it possible to playback the desired sound effect at different durations while keeping everything in sync.
Whoosh comes with an extensive on-board sample library licensed from leading sound effect recordists. It includes categories like wind, fire, metal, water, engine and explosion effects.
Whoosh is built for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.8 or later (Reaktor Player is not supported).
- Enables you to design whoosh and pass-by sound effects.
- Complex but intuitive to use sound design engine.
- 4 loop / grain samplers, 4 impact samplers, wave mixer, Doppler engine and post effects.
