“I must say that Weaponiser is my favourite Krotos tool for getting things done quickly without giving up creativity and quality. If you ever find yourself struggling over a tedious and repetitive sound editing task….. just Weaponise It!”

Sync to picture with MIDI

Switch between presets whilst maintaining sync within your DAW, rather than adjust multiple tracks, groups or plugins. Use MIDI to trigger your engines and velocity sensitivity to program or perform precise variations to your design. Trigger the entire plugin, or individual engines via MIDI.

Experience the power of Weaponiser in action

Weaponiser is available to try for free with a 10 day trial. The demo features a smaller selection of presets and assets than the full version for you to test the software’s potential.

Sequence your timeline & fire away!

The timing and arrangement of the engines can be sequenced and offset by using the colour-coded built-in timeline. For precise micro-timings between engines, or variation between layers each time a sound is triggered.

Hit the Fire button to trigger, activate Burst mode to create automatic bursts from one-shot assets, or adjust the fire rate to match changes in footage.

Intuitive workflow

Easily import your own sounds with drag and a drop from the browser or your own library, or get started using hundreds of factory presets.

Multichannel output

Process each engine with your own plugins or output each layer to its own stereo track to prep of your design for mixing.

Paul Stoughton

“Weaponiser has become an integral part of my workflow for interactive weapon design. You can’t really preview how automatic weapon layers will stack at the proper fire rate without tedious editing in a DAW. With Weaponiser I’m able to drop in the layers and tweak as if I was in a game audio middleware program like Wwise, greatly tightening the iteration loop.”

“I love being able to layer my own gun sounds and have them constantly switch and rotate through every time I hit the fire button in Weaponiser. No two gun shots sound the same and it quickly gives me a dynamic battle happening in a matter of seconds. “
