Creating Game Audio Assets with Krotos Studio

Krotos Studio makes it easy to create assets to import into Wwise or FMOD.

Vinny selects a scenario and blends the sounds together in the performance area, then records the sounds onto the timeline.

Vinny covers the weapon selection menu, ambiences, footsteps and gunshots all with the Krotos Studio presets, to create a fully comprehensive soundscape.

Did you notice how Vinny uses multiple footstep layers to add extra details to the grassy areas of the clip? Using multiple presets together is a great way to add extra details to your sound designs.

Another creative idea Vinny demonstrates is reducing the 'Strength' parameter in the AK47 Single Shot preset to emulate the suppressor attached to the character's weapon in-game. This is a great way to add versatility and dynamics to your gunshots.

Vinny records Krotos Studio directly to a track in the traditional workflow using Ableton's 'Resampling' mode. You can also use Krotos Studio's drag-and-drop functionality to place sound effects onto the timeline with ease.
