Hello World!


Hello Everyone! 
It's really hard to begin, but now this is my first step into sharing my knowledge with You guys!

Maybe I will start from introducing myself. My name is Krzysztof Kus and I am a sound designer and music composer from Kraków (Poland). I started my music and sound journey in 2005 when I loved sick trance beats. Yeah trance music turned me on! As a young kid I was dreaming about turning melodies in my head into real musical pieces. Tons of determination and motivation later I made my first hands up (it's a kind of trance music) track. It sounded awful as hell but I was proud! After many years I'm owner of a Synthphonia - epic music composing company, I'm also a game and movies sound designer, post-producer, even a voice actor! Look what sick trance music did to me! :D 

Everyone in his/her live will say to itself : if I want to increase my skills, I need to share my knowledge to other people. It's a duty. So... Welcome in my video blog series called : Speed of Sound : Sound Design for Beginners. I'm not an alpha and omega, but I want to help younger adepts of sound design technique to understand some rules, methods and ways to create satisfying sounds in games, movies and other media.

So... LET'S THE GAME BEGIN!!1!111!!!!!!!

Ludum Dare 41 !!!

Hey Hey Hello! I have to say that: EVERY GAMEDEV GUY HAS TO COMPLETE AT LEAST ONE GAME JAM IN HIS CAREER. Thanks for reading! Bye.

I'm kidding. Today I will talk about my sound design in our Ludum Dare 41 game called "Trishoot".
Here's the link to Trishoot : https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/41/trishoot  (just download and play :) ) 
(this is the shoot of the gameplay)
The concept of this game came from game designer - Kornel - who shot an idea "Let's compare match-3 with shooter). Oh I just forgot to mention : theme of LD41 was "Combine 2 incompatible genres". So whole team loved the Kornel's idea, and we started prototyping. When I heard this concept, I immediately looking for the best audio solution of this game. Lucky (or unlucky xD) for me was fact, that we haven't any graphic artists, so (I did some sketches when I was young xD) I decided to make a graphics too. That was a really good option for me and audio, because I was the creat…

FMOD tutorial - How to make modern Shooting sounds (and be stressed as hell in the same time!!)

Hi guys!!
I knew this moment will come : my first FMOD tutorial :) I love this middleware for the easy and friendly interface, and tons of ideas that're coming through the hours of working:) So I came with idea to create FMOD event, where you can control few sounds and actions with only one parameter (knoob) and I'm a big fan of Battle Royale games, where my older (and more mature) friends - sound designers invented a tricky method to inform a player that his ammo is getting lower. They made it by change the sound of shooting bullets through the whole ammo magazine.

This is my first time in front of camera... Guys I was stressed as F5#K!! :) I totally forgot what I was talkin' about! :D But everything for You ;)

Catch!!


About music... SoS music chart 01 !!!1!oneone!!

Hi guys!
March was a really busy month for me... so I didn't have much time to post here. April started a little bit (slightly :D ) lighter so my first thought was "hey Chris! move your ass and post on your blog you little bastard!".

I know - Speed of Sound is about sound design in games, movies, media, but I think, good sound designers are also music lovers. So I decided to make a top 5 of my favourite (mostly played) music tracks for each month. I love my music folders, my music "routine" but I'm also open for a new music, so guys don't be surprised when you will see the same tracks few months in a row :D
Let's start:



No5 - Deadmau5 - Cat Thruster - I love Deadmau5 catchy, hypnotizing beats with analogue feeling. Cat Thruster starts with lovely lovely bassline. It reminds me the best 70s funky basslines. Really good mixed with kickdrum attacks listener with good energetic vibe.

No4 - Lights & Motion - Pandora - Post rock is new for me. And I fel…
