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 :-)

sound visualizer experiment 4

for this sound visualizer I subdivided a plane several times and used a triangulate modifier. The sound drives the intensity of a displacement modifier.

For this sound visualizer I animated the color of a diffuse material node using a driver and an empty node

the song I used is called "To be named" and can be found here

sound visualizer experiment 2

For this animation I baked a sound curve to the z-position of an emtpy. Then I used a cylindrical shape as a particle emitter that gets scaled by the empty and moved it along a curved path

I used the first 10 seconds of my song arp1 to test the visualizer

for this sound visualizer I created a python script that creates curves for 16 frequency bands of the sound file

The song can be heard in full length here

my script is based on the unbake f-curve script by liero

Floating Processing cloudes with minim

I made a simple example to test the sound input features of minim, an audio library for processing.

I took one of the cloudes i wrote for my ical-flowers and wrote a simple sketch that makes it float to the right whenever someone blows into the microphone.
