UPDATE our review of Igniter is available as well: Igniter Full Tank a Specialized Tool Generating Sounds of Aircraft, Spacecraft by Krotos Review

Authentic vehicle sounds cannot only be some of the most challenging sound effects to capture or create, but they can also be some of the most expensive.

Igniter is the new industry standard for creating any real-world or sci-fi vehicle and engine sound effects with ease. Whether you work in audio post or game audio, it’s time to pull into the pitstop, land on your virtual runway and turbo-charge your sound design at great value!  

Igniter is the only solution of its kind to come jam-packed with over 20 performable vehicles and 1,943 audio assets from vehicles including Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, Tesla, Harley Davidson, Huey UH-1H, Agusta Westland 119x, CH-47D Chinook, Bombardier Challenger, Cessna 560XL, skids, sweeteners and much more. Recordings come from Watson Wu, The Recordist, Sounding Sweet, Georgle Vlad, Echo Peak and Flysound. Thousands of dollars worth of recordings that will also save you hours of editing.

Available in two versions as a VST/AU/AAX plugin:

  • Igniter – offering a total of 614 assets, 24 vehicles and over 200 presets. 
  • Igniter Full Tank – offering a total of 1943 assets and 75GB of onboard recordings, ramps, static rev bands, Foley sounds, skids & slides.

Start Your Engines. 

Igniter enables you to design, perform and automate any complex vehicle behaviour directly in your DAW – from sports cars, motorbikes, planes, helicopters, spacecraft and other engine sounds to moving ambiences, textures, Foley or whatever sparks your imagination.

Navigate Into Undiscovered Audio Territory.

Igniter is the only solution of its kind to come jam-packed with over 20 vehicles ready to hit the road with or launch you into another galaxy. Add more vroom to your engines by using our unique Granular, Synth, Loop and One-Shot Modes.

Live Life In The Automation Fast Lane.

Quickly design detailed, non-linear behaviour, with complex envelopes for dynamic, real-time performance of any of Igniter‘s 600+ parameters. Create complex one-shot systems using our unique triggering system (also ideal for impacts, mechanical devices, robotics, sweeteners and more), automatic or manual gearbox configurations with steady RPMs, performing, automating or editing different engine, moving or evolving material.

Break The Sound Design Speed Limit.

Get creative with Igniter’s drag and drop hybrid modulator system, FX bus for parallel processing, and 10 in-built FX per module. Easily perform or automate movement using up to 5 discrete layers of pan, doppler and reverb (with a collection of impulse responses) all from one master controller. Route the output of each module back to your DAW for mixing and rendering layers, or export to your game engine or audio middleware solution. And better yet, as with all Krotos Audio products, you can even import and process your own sounds into our One Shot and Loop Systems for use beyond engine vehicle design!

Krotos Audio founder and CEO, Orfeas Boteas comments: “Vehicle sound design is often very complex, with many layers of different sounds creating the overall sound you hear. These layers change continuously based on what the vehicle is doing and where you are positioned, relative to it. Given that our customers are always looking to improve their workflow, Igniter aims to make the process more elegant and creative, empowering them to perform, automate and customise any vehicle sound they need whilst saving them hours of editing.”

Sound designer Richard Devine who has worked for the likes of Jaguar and Google, believes that “Krotos Audio’s new Igniter vehicle design system is one of the first plugins that has allowed me to create dynamic powerful engine sounds like never before. I am very excited to use this for my next electric vehicle design project this year.“
