    Wow. Great stuff. The magic of making sound!! Also I’ve been wondering. How did you guys created this sound for Sub-Zero? This really High-pitched whiz?? What kind of process you went trough?

      Thanks! I made a ton of source material for Sub Zero’s sound effects because he was one of the earliest characters in development and I had the luxury of time. Those whooshes were made from processing recordings of breaking a frosted glass lamp shade in my office. I granulated, stuttered, and stretched them and then many performances were layered together, dopplered, then fed into the Cloud Delay and Metaverb modules of Molekular (in Reaktor) and then a ring modulator.

    So cool! Can’t believe how well the raw skull shattering sound worked. Really cool use of Crystallizer too 🙂

    This is awesome. How did you make those nut cracks sounds so brutal? What plugin did you use for that?
