Seven films showcase various power tools, designed for demanding applications by Erbauer. Each film had a core theme: Brand film, Cool Tech, Battery Range, Drill, Cord V Cordless, Brushless range and more. 

The process for creating the sound design featured on all of these films involved going big and bold. This matched the stylised cinematic visuals that required many layers of custom source recordings, contact microphone recordings and library sounds. Using this complexity of audio sources meant the hard hitting power tool scenarios encountered in all films delivered with the necessary sonic impact. 

The contact microphone recordings provided some much needed frequency reinforcement across the entire spectrum. The physical vibrations picked up by this device from drilling into wood and masonry helped to fill out the tool sounds once layered.  I found regular microphone recordings didn’t contain the punch, intensity and ‘grit’ I was listening for, even with effects.

Pitch automation was used throughout to slow down sounds for slow motion shots. Dynamic EQ was used to carve
out low end bass frequencies in the music track so the SFX buss had occasional priority maintaining the low end impact.
