Synthbits: What do MONTAGE, Richard Devine and the new Jaguar I-Pace have in common?
Check out why the user interaction and navigation sounds in the new Jaguar I-Pace sound so cool!
On the cab ride over to the MODX Livestream Event at Yamaha Artist Services in NYC Richard Devine got a phone call from Jaguar informing him it was okay to talk about the sound design work he recently did for them.
The work in question? Designing the interior user interaction and navigation sounds in the new Jaguar I-Pace Performance SUV.
Richard used MONTAGE extensively in the creation of those UI sounds. In this article from Musicradar
Richard says that he chose MONTAGE because of the ability of FM-X Synthesis to "cut through the air really well" especially "in noisy ambient environments.” Check out the interview below, and stay tuned for more Synthbits coming soon!
