Hello everyone, I extracted an excerpt of a movie's soundtrack just so I could show you a sci-fi gun sound effect that really amazed me: http://www.freewebs.com/rafael_navega/NiceTrack.mp3 I was wondering what would a sound designer use to build such a sound, I mean, using only synth\digital generation or if there is some organic source? How many layers of sweetening do you think it's necessary to achieve something similar? Any comment on the sound effect is welcome. Thank you for your time, Kryzon.

Sounds like some form of power tool. I'm leaning more towards a drill

Heres a great tool i use for making magic sounds and SCI-FI sounds

Just load in a sound and play around with some features, you can get some awesome sounding stuff!

Its pretty hard to pick what exactly someone used but i hope that helps

You could play a note on a synthesizer, activate a highpass filter in the signal path and crank up the filter feedback (close) to maximum. This is the basic "Pew" sound of the gun. In the example there's also a very short delay, which adds this vibrating, metallic sound to the gunshot.
How exactly it sounds is dependent on what synth you use, which waveform, which note etc.
