besides doing german voice acting I also could trying myself on doing effects, I didnt played the newest version of S44, but I remember that there were some horrible and some very good sound effects.
So I thought about redoing some or what is possible, with firecrackers! So recording firecrackers of all sizes plus using different objects and trying to figure out different sounds/effects (for example the sound, when a projectile leaves the barrel).
So I expect that the following effects should be possible without putting audacity in action: (but using it for modification anyways…)
-Explosions on ground (firecracker + sand or something else)
-Projectile leaving barrel (a regular barrel+firecracker)
-Explosions on concrete/hard surfaces, grass/ground/mud/snow what eva
-Building explosions (yes that might need audacity for scaling up’nd shit, because I can’t blow up my entire neighborhood ^^)
-Explosions on Steel (projectiles hitting tank huls/penetration or getting mirrored from it away)
-Explosion sounds from a specific distance
-Maybe Its even possible to make better machinegun sounds (small crackers+steel barrel+audacity)
So what do you guys think? Is there a need for it? Already someone here who has experience in it?
I would try out myself on some trials In a couple of weeks with small firecrackers.
To point out the legality of this, In Germany we have as usual everything standardized that includes the firecrackers to a specific size. So there is a limit on the explosion size and therefor the sound.
