Sound Design & Alien: Isolation - Part 2


Part 2 in the Valkyrie Sound series on the sound design of Alien: Isolation.


In this video, we take a recording of a fridge from and change it into a usable engine hum. This is the first step in designing a layer of sounds in which we can place our other audio assets.


Enjoy – and please share links to your sounds on YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, or LinkedIn!
