this video from polyfjord (Tutorial: Mechanical Sound Design for 3D Artists - YouTube) turned me onto soundly! i feel like everyone should be using this tool for sound design! you can literally just copy snippets of a sound and drag them directly into your editor (audition, davinci resolve, etc). it's so cool! use his promo code polyfjord for 3 free months (expires 3/31/23).
this sounds like an ad, but i'm just really into sound design and anything that can help people create better work.
