Hi Everybody! I'm working on an indie WWII short movie (40 minutes) post mix and have quite a few gun, rifle, and munitions SFX involved. I was hoping to create a rear channel slap back echo to mimic what you'd hear if you were in a canyon say and the sound trails off into the distance. I tried simply running it through Altiverb and editing out the beginning of the clip, then mapping the reverb tail to the back channel, and it worked (sort of). It sounded okay, but I'm pretty sure it could be better. Then I tried switching it up and tried used Space, then ReVibe (which did get it closer but still not satisfying) Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas on how best to achieve this sound? I wonder how do the big guys do it? It's a single shot to the head, execution style. I was planning to have a startled flock of birds fly off afterwards! I do have a DPA 5100 and could record the sfx myself, if need be. But I'd need to travel to the mountains to do it and find myself a luger since this guy is a WWII buff and would only want an authentic sound. Just hoping I can create something digitally. War is hell but editing the SFX is pretty friggin' fun! Thanks in advance! John
