The industry-standard vehicle sound design system
Igniter is a one-stop solution for designing, performing and automating vehicles directly in your DAW. From everyday vehicles, sports cars, motorbikes, planes, helicopters, spacecraft, drones or anything you can imagine.
Design Vehicle Sound Effects Directly In Your DAW
Ready-to-go vehicles at your fingertips
Select from over 20 high-quality performable vehicles including Ford F150, Harley Davidson, Audi R8 and more.
Explore the power of a hybrid workflow
Process vehicle sound effects as part of a powerful, hybrid workflow using Granular, Synth, One Shot or Loop modules.
Design vehicle sounds in seconds
Igniter will save hours of editing and will allow you to perform your vehicle sound effects via MIDI or change the length or type of sound in a complex vehicle scene in seconds.
Use cases in sound design
Design vehicles with automation and eliminate the time-consuming elements of vehicle sound effects. Follow along to your footage on screen as you design, with a flexible and quick workflow.
Add a Doppler effect to any preset in Igniter instantly, and perform the movement of a vehicle through a space, or as it moves past the viewer. Save and recall this movement for easy adjustments later in the edit, or save your presets for use in another project.
Sweetners, car doors, windows, windscreen-wipers, interiors or exteriors – deliver your full vehicle scene in one. The One Shot tab contains a collection of samplers which can be loaded with sweeteners to add an extra dimension to your designs.
Access a number of electric vehicle assets directly in Igniter’s File Browser, and ready-to-go electric vehicle presets to generate fully realistic electric vehicle effects instantly.
Perspectives & Changes
Mix and Automate between Engine and Exhaust perspectives for each vehicle to get the perfect mix. Use Igniter’s built-in Convolution Reverb to switch between interior and exterior perspectives, even drag and drop your own Impulse Responses from your own library
Movement on Surfaces
Igniter’s Loop system allows you to sequence loops along a timeline to design dynamically changing loop-based systems. This feature allows your vehicle to move across different surfaces, wind speeds, or to create loop-driven systems for vehicles using static rev band recordings.
Maximise Igniter’s potential for adding revs, acceleration, brakes, engines and exhausts. Quickly sketch your vehicle’s behaviour with your mouse or midi controller, and perform along to picture right away.
Drones & Aerial Vehicles
The ground is not the limit! As well as on-ground vehicles, Igniter contains a large selection of aerial sound effects, ideal for designing hellicopters, drones, and
Sci-Fi & Futuristic Spaceships
Travel through time and space and design spaceships, sci-fi textures and vehicles of the future using Igniter’s Synth tab.
“Igniter is magical. Cutting revs and piecing together vehicle content to fit a scene can be very time consuming and there are always compromises. Driving the vehicle with a MIDI controller, performing to picture, is a much faster and more intuitive approach to building scenes like this. I’ll be using this a lot!”

“Igniter is unconventional and interactive. Instead of editing and manipulating pre-recorded audio, you can use granular sounds and manipulate them with pitch and modulations etc. to get a very believable sound quickly and easily.”
