AUDIO LAYERING WIZARD

SoundWeaver helps you design new sounds from your existing sound library in less time.  SoundWeaver opens up a highly inspirational sound design workflow.  SoundWeaver explores the depths of your sound library.

Use Cases

  • Produce more assets and increase productivity on tight schedules
  • Set up your sound design session with ready-to-use sound combinations
  • Generate variations with ease instead of manually tweaking everything
  • Find new combinations, discover and create new flavors and variety within your library

What does SoundWeaver do?

  • SoundWeaver automates and randomizes certain parts of your sound design workflow.
  • SoundWeaver searches your sound library with the help of keywords or folder paths and picks matching sounds for your project.
  • Sounds are automatically sorted, grouped, layered, aligned and split into regions (if files contain multiple variations).
  • Now you can pitch, offset, gain, shuffle and randomize individual sounds, groups or the whole project.
    The possibilities are endless.
  • Take snapshots of your favorite combinations and settings. Create as many snapshots as you like and return to them later in the process.
  • Drag’n’drop the project into your DAW for further editing or export the final mix.
  • SoundWeaver can generate countless variations from your project during export via pitch, offset and take randomization.

HOW SOUNDWEAVER HELPS YOUR WORKFLOW

MORE VARIETY ON TIGHT SCHEDULES

We all know the situation: A client has asked for 100 new sound assets, 10 variations each, delivered as soon as possible.  Creating variations in particular requires a lot of meticulous pitching, shifting and switching out elements within your original design.  With just a few commands, SoundWeaver will automate all of those time-consuming steps for you and generate as many suggestions as you like – so all that’s left for you to do is have a quick listen and keep the ones you like best.  Focus on your creative process while SoundWeaver takes care of the rest.

INSPIRATION THROUGH NEW COMBINATIONS

Speaking of creative process: Once your library has grown beyond a certain point, there is only so much experimenting you can do manually. SoundWeaver’s powerful Randomize feature often generates combinations we’d never think of trying in the first place.  This opens up a world of new possibilities and is a great way of starting a project.  Already have an idea? Tell SoundWeaver to build on it and create different flavors.  Starting empty-handed? Let SoundWeaver set up your session by putting all layers in place.  Done, but missing that special something? Try out more unlikely sounds with just a few clicks.
