So, this has been a busy week for us here at benztown with RAIN,  NAB and Deutscher Radiopreis. 1. Plugin This week I messed around with LoFi from Avid again. Still love the digital destruction presets as well as the toy bear. Play around by automating a few parameters, it will give you interesting results! 2. Inspiration […]

  Today I am more than proud to announce benztown teamed up with one of my all time favorites Jeff Schmidt. (btw..You got a benztown like german name, bro:)) What does this mean for you as a blog reader: More info, more tricks, maybe some nice little video tutorials by Jeff himself and this very […]

Hi, it’s Max. One of my jobs during my three year apprenticeship at the benztown studios, is to record and edit the SFX for our Imaging libraries. Doing this for some years now, I realized that performance is one of the most important factors for creating nice and authentic sound effects. And when it comes […]

I always get emails from people asking how to create FX for Radio Imaging or Sound Design and what do we use beside the all know Rise & Hit, Damage, Whoosh, theRiser, SFX Recordings and and and… Here are some tools I never told you about before. Try and play around with this 4 secret weapons!

We recently upgraded to Komplete Ultimate 10. With it’s 440GB of content, it’s worth checking out what comes with this bundle.

Most of the Pro Tools Users have already used plugins by AIR Music Technology. The brand is known for plugins like AIR Chorus, Lo-Fi, Multi-Delay, which all ship with ProTools since version 9. Now they released a brand new instrument to add suspense, hype, drama and movement to your production: the Riser.

In one of our last posts I introduced Rick Allen who was involved in the development of Sample Logic’s Assault. I took the opportunity to have a look on this destructive Kontakt5 instrument and asked Rick a few questions about his work on this PlugIn.

I met Rick on facebook, crazy story, ha? I was super imrpessed by the quality of the sfx he recorded and shared via soundcloud and needed to learn more about him and how he developed his skill set. Ricks career is impressive, back in the days he was the Imaging Director for the legendary Hot97 in […]

How often did you search for the right whoosh? I think I’m doing this every day… Until now, it was hard to create your own whooshes in a fast and efficient way without several layers and complex processing. With Whoosh from meltedsounds, a branch of the german sound designers Tonsturm, a tool was released which […]

We know not many of us can be as romantic as Gary, who found his great love today as you can see above. But our SFX-Diggers Konrad and Max gave their best and did a brainstorm on which sounds to record […]
