Load Up Your Audio Ammunition

Combine with Sweeteners and IRs, easily accessible via our tag-driven browser via simple drag-and-drop and available in a variety of different mic positioning’s.

Weaponiser also includes a huge range of designed presets, straight out of the box to get you started immediately.
Bullet Proof Your Sound Design
Add in-depth variation to your weapons quickly and easily. Edit and randomize Envelope or Knob Speed and Level for each bank, activate the Synth button to synthesize and process with Pitch, FM or AM synthesis, choose from a selection of Carriers and Modulators, Pitch, Duration, Gain and edit Amplitude and Amount Envelopes. Use MIDI to trigger your engines and velocity sensitivity to program or perform precise variations.
Power and Variation
Create dynamic, responsive sound design in Weaponiser. Add speed and amplitude variation to any bank in any of the plugin’s four engines, and also load up to five samples into each bank. That’s up to 80 different assets to be chosen on every trigger, with variation on 32 parameters!
Fire-arm Your FX
Utilise our FX panel and use EQ, Compression, Limiting, Saturation, Ring Modulation, Flanging, Transient Shaping and Noise Gating to amp-up your weapons for that hyper-real sound, subtly tweak or totally destroy! Further chain your FX to effortlessly build up complex signal flows.
Sequence or offset your sounds to a built-in timeline, allowing for more precise micro-timings between engines. Hit the Fire button to audition, activate Burst mode to create automatic weapons from single shot assets, adjust the Fire Rate for creating different loop speeds or press the Drunk button to randomize your timeline sequences, making each shot sound subtly different.
Handling of the Tail modules’ Impulse response reverb allows you to trigger a tail on the release of the fire button or midi note, allowing a cleaner mix or extra control when in Burst Mode. This also allows for precise control of spatialisation, and some interesting creative possibilities!
Bank and Burst Mode Flexibility
Switch between random/round robin, per bank, and also allow Burst Mode to operate in round-robin mode, incrementing files in banks per round. By filling your banks with assets and randomising them, this decreases the chance of ever hearing the exact same sound twice, even for sci-fi weapons.
Weaponiser’s mixer includes panning per engine and a Multi-Mode EQ (with a range of filter types supported on all bands) for each engine FX slot. This makes the mixing process and having tighter control over your sounds easy. Stereo waveforms are also supported in all banks and engines.
A ‘Tail On Release’ system allows a tail to be triggered on the release of the fire button or midi note, making it easy to achieve a cleaner mix or extra control over tails when in Burst Mode. Use ‘Tail Mode’ to automatically set up or reload a sound in the tail engine, which will be triggered every time a burst finishes.
Export To The Battlefield
Easily combine Weaponiser with your existing workflow, or process individual engine outputs and your favourite plugins with ease. Break out your weapon elements onto a mixer for intuitive tweaking and dynamic mixing, and quickly render layers for easy export to in-game engines or your DAW.
