    Hey everyone,

    Was watching a sound design documentary and the guy gave a lot of great ideas! One was to doppler sounds and I didn't think anything of it until I watched it.

    There's an example - the problem is I don't have Ableton so can't use that preset that the guy is giving away free! :(

    Does anyone know of any free apps that might do this effect? Or Plugins that come with pro tools?

    Putting a string bow across a steal sheet and adding a doppler could create some brilliant sounds!

    You could automate some panning and pitch shifting to simulate a doppler effect. I'd start off with the pan and then do the pitch bend to match.

    Sorry, can't help you there, I'm not at all familiar with that kind of thing. You might find something here though.

    The Waves Doppler, one of the best ones around imo, is now only $75 native for Pro Tools. I know you're looking for a free plug but $75 is a steal. It's still a staple for many sound designers.

    I believe on Dontcrack.com you could get a "demo" version of the GRM Doppler plugin (RTAS for ProTools)

    you won't be able to automate with the demo version, but you can print your FX in real-time if you know basic bus routing.

    its part of the GRM Classic bundle.
