Whoosh FX by French software developer UVI is a brand-new tool that seeks to simplify the creation of unique whoosh effects and transitions.

Online learning platform Evenant just opened the doors to another premium music production course of theirs called Trailer Music Redefined. As the name suggests, this new online course teaches you the art and craft behind the production of cutting-edge trailer music heard in many of today’s Hollywood blockbuster trailer campaigns.
Today we’re taking a look at Evenant’s online course Cinematic Synthesis – Digital Sound Creation. This course, hosted by producer and Ableton-certified trainer Big Jerr, is focusing on the creation of cinematic synth sounds heard in soundtracks of recent blockbusters and TV series like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 or Stranger Things.
With Project Chaos, British sample library developer HybridTwo launches their third and latest installment in their range of cutting-edge cinematic sound design products that offers a wide spectrum of percussion loops, cinematic effects, textures, drones and synth sequences. Project Chaos changes the game’s rules by offering an entirely user-expandable product which allows you to import and process your very own samples.
Heavyocity just released another product in their range of modern orchestral virtual instruments: FORZO Modern Brass. Following the successful concept of their Modern Strings range NOVO, FORZO is in essence three libraries in one: a powerful 26-piece orchestral brass section sampled with over 100 articulations, a hybrid engine that masterfully merges traditional brass and sound design and a loop designer that puts over 400 tempo-synced brass loops at your fingertips.
In this review, we’ll have a look at the library’s features and find out together, if FORZO can hold up to its award-winning sibling NOVO.
