Design your sound effects at lightning speed
Weaponiser is an inspiring audio layering solution that allows you to design, customise, and perform a huge range of sound effects – all within one plugin.
Layer, sequence & design with built-in assets
Choose from hundreds of presets, design with thousands of factory assets, or quickly import your own sounds. Layer up to 80 audio files using 4 powerful engines and 3 built in synthesisers to create a huge range of sound effects.
Full flexibility & endless variation
Customise and create endless variations to your sound effects every time they are triggered, and use MIDI to program or perform with speed and precision.
Weapons, Footsteps, Whooshes, Impacts… any sound at your fingertips
Choose from a diverse range of included sound library categories, easily accessible through the tag-driven browser via simple drag-and-drop. Import these into Weaponiser’s customised engines to design your components and layers with ease – Onset, Body, Thump and Tail. Weaponiser also includes a huge range of designed presets, straight out of the box to get you started immediately.
“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!”
– Steven Avila (Sound Designer, Sony / Warner Brothers)

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