I would like to know if you have any tips to recreate the sound when Gandalf takes Glamdring (the sword at 2:17)?

Or if you have a similar resource to share?

Thank you.

Regards, Samih.

  • Not an answer but it's possibly either something going through a ring modulator or a sample of a metal clang put into a granular/wavetable synthesise... or a combination of the two - I must stress that this is just me guessing - you'd have to experiment to be sure Dec 18, 2021 at 20:54

First thing it made me think of was a passing jet [basically a dopplered white noise] with a ring-mod or flanger effect.
