Sound design productions

Cartoons

I鈥檝e been working as a sound designer for the 3D cartoon series Car City InvenTom, created by Amuse Animation.

Video games

Playstos Entertainment - 'Ruff Trigger: The Vanocore Conspiracy' (Playstation 2 game) - Sound design

In the 2000s, I was the audio team leader for the console game Ruff Trigger – The Vanocore Conspiracy. I directed the soundtrack as well as created and edited all the sound effects.

The following prototype teaser, in short and extended version, is a full-motion extract from a promotional video. All of the sound effects were recorded in the studio using Foley techniques.

Working with audio programmers, I also implemented an adaptive soundtrack within the in-house game engine: MXE漏.

The following playlist can only show the old linear tracks, while at the time I deployed stems divided in adaptable chunks. Similarly to what can be achieved now with audio middleware, they could be played in layers, following the intensity and the mood of the gameplay.

Editing

Noise removal

I received a Pro Tools session with a squeaky hi-hat pedal sound. Using iZotope RX‘s spectral editing, I cleaned it up.

I received a drum overhead recorded in mono. Converted it to MIDI, applied my virtual drum kit and re-created the missing ambient.
