I'm trying to create a sound that resembles Captain America's shield from the marvel movies.

I took a recording of a metal garbage can ringing and brought it into Iris 2. I cut the attack from the envelope and added light amplitude sine wave modulation. I also set a short decay. I also layered a clean sine wave underneath the recording sample in order to give the recording more umph and body when it resonates. This is the base of Captain America's shield. Layer this with metal impacts and sub sonic stings and you're all set.

Please post a link if you use this file. I'm excited to see what you can do with this!

Text me if you want to have fun and talk gear. I love hearing what people are up to!

    This isn't really captain america's shield sound effect but this can be used for other cool things.

    I've used this sound in my game Cargo Cult as a force field sound. https://fullsparedice.itch.io/cargocult
    I am building a list of sound artists to put in my credits. Thank you! I couldn't have done it without your help.
