UVI has released Walker 2, their redesigned and expanded footstep foley designer, available now with special intro pricing. They say:
With a new engine, new recordings, and a redesigned interface, Walker 2 is a comprehensive, flexible and easy to use sound design tool that delivers everything you need to create realistic or completely fantastical footstep and movement sounds for film, games and more.
Built on a library of 45,000+ all-new samples, Walker 2 users can now choose from between 14 shoes including sneakers, boots, dress shoes, heels, socks, bare feet, crowds and more, 8 animal feet including multiple sizes of paws, hooves, and talons, a designer section for creating creature, robot and effect sounds, up to 32 surfaces now including stairs up and down, 24 clothing options, and extensive sub-layer accent sounds including buckles, shoe laces, squeaks, spurs, water and more.
Walker 2 is able to create a realistic sound in most situations thanks to the utilization of both normal and lift samples, discrete recordings for different step speeds including slow, normal, and fast-paced, combined with a high-quality IR-based reverb now sporting 46 spaces designed to replicate the most common acoustic environments. Further detail and nuance can be added with the built-in 3-band EQ with low and high cut, compressor and limiter.
Walker 2 dramatically improves workflow with an all-new user interface, including visual menus, clearer arrangement and presentation, and the support for user samples (via Falcon). Quickly browse to find the elements in your scene, dial-in level, pitch, attack and decay, randomness, audition 4 different microphones, utilize IR reverb to place your sound, then perform with speed, distance, velocity and lift controls to precisely match the action.
Intro Price: $129/129€ (regularly $199/199€). Existing Walker users can upgrade for $59/59€. Introductory and upgrade offers expire September 5th 2022. Walker 2 is also included in SonicPass.
