Our mission is to improve the way sound is designed and performed
Krotos develops innovative technologies that fundamentally improve the way sound is made and performed with their award-winning Dehumaniser, Reformer Pro, Weaponiser and Igniter range of sound design plugins.
The innovative technologies developed by Krotos have been making a huge impact across the sound design and game audio industries with a credits list spanning from Avengers, Lion King, Frozen 2, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, The Jungle Book & many more.
Dehumaniser Live, the runtime technology for interactive media, made its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in The Life of Us, a VR experience from Within.
The release of Reformer
then made it possible for audio professionals to perform a library of sound effects in real-time. Paula Fairfield, sound designer on Game of Thrones said Reformer is “insanely awesome”, and told Vanity Fair that when designing dragons, “she wasn’t sure how she would have done all this if Reformer hadn’t been released.”
Fuelled by accolades from its growing customer base, Krotos then acquired funding from games industry luminary Leslie Benzies, assembling a world-class team.
The start of 2018 marked the release of Weaponiser
, offering audio professionals the ability to import, customise and layer weapon sounds more easily, efficiently and creatively – all from within one plug-in.
In 2019, Krotos launched Igniter
, a specialised vehicle sound design plugin. Igniter was quickly dubbed ‘the new industry standard’ for creating any real-world or sci-fi vehicle and engine sound effects.
NAMM 2020 saw the introduction of Krotos’ first venture into the wider music-market with Concept,
an intuitive and creative soft-synth with a focus on intuitive and creative patch-making processes and modulation. Concept was awarded ‘Best Plugin of NAMM 2020’ by SonicState, and was featured at the top of the MusicTech Best Software at NAMM
