Welcome to ReForged: Cinematic Metallic Sound Design, our third virtual instrument focusing on unique, hybrid sounds for modern film, TV, and game composer. Recorded and produced by sound designer, ReForged explores the world of forgotten metals captured in a shed within the quiet countryside of South Wales… and as the name suggests, transforms them into something entirely new. ReForged features an array of found metal objects performed as if they were percussive instruments: an old cooker, metal shovels, rakes, a tin bath, gas canisters, and much more. These unique objects were hammered, struck, tapped, and resonated using a wide variety of both conventional and not-so-conventional techniques.
From this pool of beautifully-captured natural recordings, we crafted a new collection of designed material – cinematic impacts, sweeps, noises, rhythmic loops, glitches, sub strikes, tonal atmospheres, dark textures, and beyond. This evocative material is a perfect toolkit for soundtracks, scoring, and further sound design, fueled by a molten core of iron, steel, tin, copper, and aluminum To tie the natural and designed worlds of ReForged together, we have presented the library as a complete WAV collection (nearly 2,000 sounds) and a set of Kontakt patches with a sleek, modern sound engine. From subtle tweaks to dramatic alterations, the interface of ReForged: Cinematic Metallic Sound Design will provide you with endless variation and inspiration for your compositions.
