James Hannigan

BAFTA Award winner and five-time BAFTA Original Music nominee James Hannigan's credits include entries in the multi-million selling Harry Potter, Command and Conquer, The Lord of the Rings, Warhammer, EA Sports and Theme Park game series, and television shows such as BBC America’s Primeval and Vietnam in HD. His recent projects include EA's Dead Space 3 and forthcoming MMO, Transformers Universe.

James Hannigan and FabFilter

"I've been using FabFilter Volcano 2 for some time now, and it's one of the best and most accessible filter plug-ins I've ever had the pleasure of working with. In fact, there aren't many tracks of mine created in the last few years that don't use it in some shape or form - that's how indispensable it has become. It's my 'go to' plug-in when I want mangle a sound, create rhythmic effects or new textures, play with filter sweeps or pretty much anything else needing added character. The results are a lot more musical than some other filter plug-ins I could mention, and that's why I believe FabFIlter Volcano to be an invaluable tool for composers."
