Our mission is to improve the way sound is designed and performed

This innovative Krotos vocal processing product line has evolved into the industry-standard Dehumaniser 2. A favourite across audio post-production and games industries, Dehumaniser 2 has been responsible for creature effects in a growing list of major Hollywood and AAA game titles from Stranger Things, Avengers, Captain Marvel, Star Trek and so many more.
“Dehumaniser is an incredible tool for creating unique and varied vocal sound design treatments. From animals to alien effects, it is simple to use and easily tailored”

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.
“Instantly, Reformer is a brand new approach and a very creatively inspired tool. I love that I can try out a bunch of new things without having to manually dig up and place sweetener material. Now, THAT’s new! Cool and useful results are easy and fast to come by. It’s an inspiration maker!”

In 2019, Krotos launched Igniter, a specialised vehicle sound design plugin that revolutionises the vehicle sound design process. Igniter was quickly dubbed ‘the new industry standard’ for creating any real-world or sci-fi vehicle and engine sound effects.
“Igniter is a game changer! I’ve been waiting for something like this for years!”

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 list.
