Tsunami Sound Effect

Here is how I created a Tsunami Sound Effect from scratch. I don't recall seeing any Tsunamis in a video game so far, not even in Sim City's disaster mode, but who knows, this video might come in handy one day.

Before getting into to this, I know you game developers are looking for high quality sound effect. I recommend you check out my website: http://www.ogsoundfx.com 

I also know a lot of you can't afford to purchase sound effects for your indie game that you put your heart and guts into developing. So here are a few ways to get a pretty nice collection of free SFX:

1. Subscribe to my Youtube Channel and get this for free: http://www.ogsoundfx.com/product/youtube-subscribers-pack/

2. Subscribe to my Newsletter and get 120MB of professional sound effects !

Enjoy the video !

      I'm a composer looking for something to work on. If you're interested, feel free to PM me any questions.

      I haven’t been classically trained when it comes to composing music, but thankfully you don’t have to be nowadays, if you want to throw in some violins or brass sections into your scores…

       
      This music was for the 2nd stage of a boss fight in the video game I’m currently working on (see here for a trailer) and I wanted some heavy music to pick up the pace and intensity of the battle sequence. The boss is a massive, ancient armoured knight in comparison to our much smaller warrior, so the mood of the track had to be intimidating and looming. Picking the right instruments and sound for a scene is half the battle in my opinion. Being a “souls-like” game, orchestral music is a go-to, but I’ve had no experience in doing so beforehand, so I started with something that’s familiar to me: a guitar. I slapped on some distortion and wrote a couple of ideas that I personally would want to hear when fighting this boss. I then layered it with some percussive mutes where I felt a beat, and a “lead” melody that could work over the top as a progression idea.
      I then opened my Native Instrument sample packs and started orchestrating (choosing the combination of instruments to play the notes of the riff) by writing my notes into Logic Pro X’s midi editor. A great place to start is with the low strings, ie the cellos and double basses, to build up from the lower frequency instruments. Then I added some trumpets and brass for accents and colour and finally shoved some nice heavy percussion loops to bring out the drive and power behind the musical idea.
      Some extra parts here and there, some reverb, compression and some mixing lead me to what you hear in the video above.
      Of course, i'm not trying to say that mixing experience isn't important in getting the overall sound right, as well as proficiency in your DAW (digital audio workstation) and knowing which instruments work best for certain passages. However this method (for me anyway) is a great way to build up confidence when utilising instruments and styles that are otherwise totally alien.
      Having a clear vision of what you want to create and a simple guitar riff can take you a long way.
      Thanks for reading.

      I've been making music for about 7 years, I have hundreds of releases on soundcloud and bandcamp. Recently I have stepped up my post production game, pouring long hours into EQ and mixing. Most of my music is in a moody, "foggy" piano style with heavy experimentation through pitch shifting, overdubbing, and live recording. I use a spectrogram EQ to manually shape sounds and scoop out noise in Audacity. I am familiar with many general concepts, applying compression, reverb, high and low pass filters, and pretty much all of the effects in Audacity and many of the pitfalls and lessons of live recording for guitar and piano in my home studio. I am familiar with some other programs like ableton and fruity loops but live recording is my strong suit as opposed to composing music in a DAW. I rely heavily on improvisation, recording large amounts of audio and cutting it down and manipulating it in post as well as doing overdubs. I can put out a project of piano music in a month or so up to what I think is a high / acceptable standard that I personally am happy with.

      I am heavily inspired by Akira Yamaoka's work on the Silent Hill series as well as Angelo Badalamenti. I dream of composing music for games or short films, and feel like I'm ready to take on a project like that, as well as being willing to license my already existing music out which I think would be a perfect fit for the right type of horror game or anything with emotional elements.

      I am currently working on another project that will be released in December or on New Years. I will work for a reasonable amount and have done this out of passion for 5+ years because I love doing it. I feel that I have improved enough now to pursue doing something like this.

      Thank you so much to anyone who even bothers to click any of these links, and thank you for your time!

      Other skills: I do all of my own cover art with digital photo editing and subsequently also have about 5 years of experience with that- photography and digital photo manipulation. I can work on marketing materials or art in this way. I play the Piano, Guitar, Synth / String piano etc, and I sing. I have close connections to some other musicians and visual artists. I will be honest if I don't think my music will work for your project or if I'm not sure if I can do something well enough, but I feel comfortable taking on some general audio design as well, including general sound / dialogue recording or noise reduction.

      Bluezone Corporation releases 'Lake Wave Sound Effects', a new immersive sound library. Featuring subtle splashes, enveloping water movements and calm lake ambiences, these sounds have been meticulously recorded at a lakeside on a windy day in the French Ardennes forest. The collection contains 105 isolated lapping wave sounds and 4 gentle ambiences in 24 bit / 96 kHz.
      From wild mountain lakes to river banks, from waves slapping against the rocks in a creek to sandy beaches and rocky coastlines, this sample pack is the perfect construction kit: you can easily stack and layer these sounds to add intensity to your ambience, or simply use them as they are to obtain quiet ambiences. All sounds are hyper-detailed with a particular attention to the foam caused by the ripples on the surface of the water.
      The water side ambiences included in this sound library are carefully processed to give you ready-to-use elements. Furthermore, 'Lake Wave Sound Effects' is a useful resource for film and video game sound designers: you can easily mangle the sounds to get a realistic and organic touch inside your projects. Note: the background ambience in the demo is not part of the product but is added free of charge.
