September 2023 Update: 13 New Sound Effect Presets & 1.7.2 Update

September 2023 brings the 1.7.2 update to Krotos Studio, plus 13 new sound effect presets to explore and use in your projects, focusing on a cinematic theme. Learn more about this update below!

Introducing the September 2023 Sound Effect Presets:

The September sound effect presets feature a selection of cinematic transitions and impacts, plus more richly detailed ambiences to Krotos Studio's sound collection.

2 Ambience Sound Effect Presets

More versatile & infinitely-generating ambience sound effects have been added to the ambiences category this month:

  • Interior Quiet: We bring more room tones to Krotos Studio this week—subtle yet essential interior ambiences featuring vents, fridges, bathrooms and rumble.
  • Quiet Village: An idyllic village preset featuring water fountains, church bells, wind in the trees, bird song and more.

1 Weather Preset

Even more choices for rain sound effects in the weather category.

Rain on Surfaces: An essential collection of sounds for many a project. Umbrellas, tin roofs, car windshields, windows and more are pelted with rain to bring depth and realism to your rainy scenes.

10 Cinematic Sound Effect Presets

  • Cold Impact: An impact sound effect to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Cold metallic layers meet with cavernous tails in this powerful punch preset.
  • Steel Impact: Lots of destructive layers in this impact preset. Sheet metal, gongs, and springs are tortured and twisted for true cinematic effect.
  • Metallic Flurry (transition): An effective transition preset with metallic tonal layers, warm bass and lots of texture.
  • Subtle Flow (transition): A stripped-back yet versatile transition preset with airy, tonal, filtered and noisy options. This one is great when your transitions and whooshes don't need too much drama.
  • Simple Flutter (transition): Great for fast transitions, with ghostly tones, fast thwips and charismatic spin transitions.
  • Howling Call (Transition): More tonal-flavoured transitions featuring low-bowing strings & metallic howls.
  • Backdraft Mosquito (Impact): Glitchy hits, mechanical pitched buzzes, squelchy layers and more.
  • Guitar Mayhem (Transition / Rise + Hit): This is fun! Chaotic explosions, risers and debris on one X-Y pad meet a metal band on another! full of drum fills and distorted guitar licks.
  • Metal Hit (Impact): A Classic stinger impact, perfect for trailers. Bass, impacts, resonances and screeches combine to make this iconic effect.
  • Insect Hit (Impact): Another punchy impact effect with a creepy-crawly twist. Listen for the tail on this impact to hear the gross-out shrieks and scuttles of creatures with too many legs for many of our liking.

Note that new presets only apply to subscribers. With the sound effects within Krotos Studio growing every month, there's no better time to upgrade!
