Recreating the Inception Braaam with a Volca Bass

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-18T06:35:08+02:00

I recreated the famous Inception Braaaam sound from the trailer using my volca bass and a KP Mini (for the reverb). The sound is known under a range of names like 'Inception Horns', 'Inception Braaam', 'That Trailer sound' and so on

here is an mp3 file of my creation and if you have no clue what I´m talking about watch this video on youtube that shows all the trailers featuring this particular sound. I think I will use it in one of my next blender animations - to make it sound more filmy :-)

sverchok experiment 5 - slices

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-16T06:20:37+02:00

For this sverchok experiment I created a mesh from 3 Metaballs and sliced it using a sverchok script. Then I extruded the slices.

sverchok experiment 4 - sine wave

for this sverchok experiment I generated an animated plane made of random sized and colored cubes.

sverchok experiment 3 - cloning

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-14T07:11:20+02:00

For this sverchok experiment I generated a mesh by combining a cube and a icosphere

sverchok experiment 2 - bmesh animation

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-13T09:00:54+02:00

This is my second sverchok experiment. For this animation I used a bmesh creation tool and modified the transformation matrix using a node setup that's depending on the current frame number. The flapping sound was created using bitwig-studio

sverchok experiment 1 - hilbert curve

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-12T11:14:58+02:00

Jimmy Gunawan from blendersushi recomended me to give the sverchok blender add-on a try - so I started a new experient series. The first thing I noticed is that it creates 3D Hilbert curves out of the box - very awesome :-). So here is my first sverchok blender experiment

for this animation I played with the fiber-mesh addon. The leafs are generated using a particle system.

A new Track using Bitwig-Studio and my Volcas - I controlled the Volca Bass using the External Instrument, and recorded it to an new audio track while turning the knobs. The effects on the bass track are from my Kaospad.

My first Track in Bitwig-Studio

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-05T10:42:51+02:00

I got BitWig-Studio this week and this is the first complete track I´ve recorded. I used my volca beats and keys, my mininova and some of the internal instruments of bitwig. I really like the FM4-synth and the sampler in BitWig.

small particles experiment

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-06-23T05:44:55+02:00

Tonight I played a bit with the blender particles engine and created some nice effects using very small particles, since they are quite short I combined two of them in one video this time using the video sequence editor

you can download the blend file for the fire effect

or you can download the blend file for the explosion effect the explosion effect

but be warned they are both quite big this time!
