An early stage prototype of a FPS developed in Unreal Engine 4. All SFX and VO was recorded with a Zoom H5 using the proprietary microphone modules (XY & shotgun). Sounds such as the ventilation fan and the jetpack were created entirely with the synthesizer "Thor" in Propellerheads Reason 7. The ambience and music were produced in Reason as well. All audio was implemented in engine using blueprints.
This recording is a render of a number of instances of the subtractive synthesizer “Thor” in Reason, generating these sounds in real-time.

2-day project produced in Reason 7 using only the stock orchestral library: An experimental reinterpretation of the musical score from Star Wars Episode 7, where the purpose was to see how far I could get by only utilizing the stock library and tools in Reason 7. I do not own the rights to this music.
Brief workflow rundown:
Day 1 - Analyzed and transcribed the musical piece, note by note only by listening to the original track (no sheet music applied). Picked out suitable virtual instrument patches per stem by choosing from Reason’s stock orchestral library. Proceeded by recording each stem using a midi keyboard without applying quantization in order to simulate “organic” feel (however, performed to fixed tempo). Came to realization that appropriate swells and dynamic appropriation specific to each instrument wasn’t available in library, therefore tweaking of individual instrument samples and what in context would be considered sound design followed, as maintaining certain level of realism was the focus. Once all stems were in place, a basic mix was done.
Day 2 - Attempt to pinpoint and mimick the same placement and tone of each instrument/section as close to the original as possible, using only available processing tools as well as go on to finalizing the mix to its current state.
