Krotos Audio, the company behind the innovative Dehumaniser and Reformer product range, are pleased to announce the release of their latest product - Weaponiser.

Beat makers and music producers can also access their collection of drum presets to layer up and customise their own loops and kits.

Mark Kilborn – Sound Designer (Call of Duty, Modern Warfare Remastered, Black Ops 3 and COD WWII)
‘Weaponiser is an extremely cool plugin! I’ve wanted a plugin like this for a while, a clean interface for building guns with a faster interface than doing it all manually on separate DAW tracks’
Bryan Celano – Sound Designer (Destiny 2, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Gears Of War 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker)
‘If you need to create an exotic gun, this plug-in will help you create it! The Krotos libraries are clean and powerful. Plus having the ability to load your own sounds gives you endless possibilities! (Don't let the name Weaponiser limit you to using this plug-in to only create weapons!)’
