2. the shot sounds like a hissing cutting attack since its burning air particles,
3. and then very quickly followed by something akin to an explosion as a large blast of ionized particles vaporize an area of effect.
4. So a mix of an explosion and the hissing sound I mentioned. It's a strange weapon to describe.
5. So working my way back from that I would leave out the explosion effect for the non charged version and not make it so strong sounding.
6. The Raker on normal firing I would imagine almost sounds like ta furious roaring burning cavalcade of sound from the sheer weight of fire.
7. More bursty than sustained unleashing salvos.
8. It's got a similar sound to the overcharged mode when it impacts but minus the blast qualities.
9. It's our second fastest firing direct energy weapon at a quick glance so just short of a minigun level of shots.
10. The Heavy Burst Canon I would make sound like burst canon minigun. Then its nova reactor turns the mini gun up to 11!
I got faith you can translate my words into a great sound. Even if it requires some artistic interpretation. If I've said too much just take the key words you need and go with it, and if I've said too little let me know.
Any sound effects currently on there, that kinda resembles what you are imagining?
The Ion Cannon that currently there is due for an overhaul.... which means remake from scratch. I do kinda like the way it sounds, but if I'm going to build a base sound for all Ion weapons.... well... I should make sure the sound effects are correctly assembled.
EDIT: Here is some goodies from the Rip-Tide sound effects (Rip Tide has an Ion weapon) - So we might kill... 5 birds with one stone:
What do you think of these sound effects?
Found some new possible sound for the ION cannon... will be used to create the "Base sound" which is applied to all Ion weapon sound effect variations.http://www.pond5.com/sound-effect/45321139/sci-fi-force-field-impact-1.htmlhttp://www.pond5.com/sound-effect/6142382/circuit-breaker-switch-large-power-04.html
