In this video, we’re going to take a look at sound designing a free runner scene, and look at the results you can achieve using the Krotos Starter Sound Effects Library. The Starter Library is an all rounder containing 10.5GB of around 4000 professional and royalty-free sound effects.

Here’s the Sound Designed Scene

This go-to collection of sound resources is a perfect companion for those starting out in sound design, or for anyone looking to expand their existing collection with an affordable SFX pack for post-production and game audio. Ideal for anyone looking to get quick and great sounding results.

Here’s how we approached the sound design of this high-octane free runner scene

To begin this scene, we started by placing some city ambience sounds into the scene. With this base to the scene in place, we were able to explore the whoosh sounds folder to punctuate the movement of the free runner. Whistles, thwips, and whooshes all helped to convey the action of the free runner. We even included some sounds from combat rifles as they fitted the scene nicely, and as we’ve mentioned before it’s always wise to think outside the box when selecting sounds. For the Foley sounds, we took some boots-on-gravel sounds for the early car park shots and then used running on concrete sounds when the surface in the scene changed.
