At least for me it was first introduced in the Transformer movies, but it has now found its way also into game titles such as Mass Effect series and Injustice. Now I know this question has been asked like kazilion times, but I think someone here knows exactly what piece of software / hardware people use to get that synthetic signature sound that seems to be so ever popular among professional sound designers?
Obviously Transformers sound design is more than just those synthetic transforming sound, but I do not want to concentrate on the over all sound design of that franchise. I´m more keen on understanding the core-signal chain behind that synthetic sound they on the franchise. Now I´ve been doing some research on the topic, the Transformers Fall of Cybertron used guitar sounds to emulate the transform sound, Jean-Edouard Miclot seems to be an avid Kyma user and to top it off some say those sounds can be re-created with a pure synthesis with a synths like Native Instrument FM8. Sooo... I would like you to discuss this thing with facts not assumptions if it´s alright to you all?
