Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Struggled to find the right sounds without any noise for your historic backgrounds? Boom Library might help you. Designing the sound for a medieval scene can be quite difficult. Where do you look for the similar vibrations? How do you find the perfect tune?
Due to the lack of smartphones, TV or even a well-written book, the people back then didn’t sit in their houses the whole day long making no noise at all. Instead they went out on the streets, to the market, they camped, they worked, they drank, the chattered, they yelled, they farmed, they were very noisy or at least busy in a very diverse way. We sound designers should keep that in mind when designing a convincing medieval scene that covers that multi-facetted background ambience.
Designers from Boom Library went out to some of the most authentic medieval heritage sites in Germany in order to record the right sounds and, in the end, present, a toolkit for all kinds of medieval background soundscapes called “MEDIVEAL LIFE“. The pack features all kinds of medieval sound effects with hundreds of different sound sources from the medieval times within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT and a collection of completely pre-designed and ready-to-use medieval places within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – DESIGNED edition. The MEDIEVAL LIFE – BUNDLE contains both.
