A Sound Effect Interview Ben Meechan - Sound Effects Editor on Mission Impossible Rogue Nation
Asbjoern at A Sound Effect got to interview Sound Effects editor Ben Meechan about his work on the latest film form the Mission Impossible stable.
It’s busy and the film is continually cut, so we have to work fast and keep up with the turnover. Scenes and reels were split between us and then we would swap and change, so that we could each take turn bringing our own ideas and tastes to the film. We shared ideas and reviewed with James Mather, then we would address the notes and improve and add more detail. We fed the Edit department mixes of sections and scenes so they could put them in the avid. This allowed them to give us feedback. So we are always adding and improving throughout, moving in the direction the director wanted us to go.
I have a various plugs I like to use, such as Sound Toys, fabfilter, and Brainworx, these are great for manipulating sounds, adding low-end and range – I especially like the delays. But all within reason as I’m not a big fan of when real sounds becomes over-processed.

Punch Sound Effects Combo Pack from The Sound Keeper
Jeremy Rogers got in touch this week...
I love your site! I've been a fan for a long time, especially on the Sunday Sound Effects Roundup! I thought you might get a kick out this. I'm a sound designer for video games. I've been in the industry for over 10 years and I've had the pleasure to work on a bunch of great titles including Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero, Call of Duty and I'm currently working on Uncharted 4 at Naughty Dog. Anyway, I've made the jump into sound effects libraries and here is the first sound pack I've come out with, Punches. As a professional sound designer, I find there are never enough punches in my libraries. You can use punch type material for bigger impacts, or stronger attacks, or just about anything! I wasn't happy with what was out there, so I decided to go on a journey to produce all those great punch and impact sounds I need for work! Along the way, I discovered some great techniques and sounds for all types of fighting and combat situations. It was an extensive study of punches from the past 100 years, and now I'm able to share this with you! The combo pack is priced at $110 with the option to buy them separately and the processed pack at $75 and the raw punch pack at $85.
