Is anyone besides me finding the sound effects and the like in this show... lacking? Sound is a big part of any show. For me it's what really makes it come alive. This is not about the voice acting, this is just about the sound effects and design. I watch TFPrime and hear it, and it just sounds like little effort was put in. I'm thinking like the details. The animation has all these little touches added in but the sound design is too bland to back it up. In Animated, despite being a 2D cartoon, all the robots had unique sounds which made them come alive. All their footsteps were unique, and when they moved they all had different little touches that went with the character. Ratchet creaked reflecting his age, Bumblebee had almost toy-sounding movement reflecting his small size, likewise Bulkhead who had big heavy metal noises. This was also reflected in their footsteps, with BB sounding like he had pans for feet, and Bulkhead's big, thumping steps. It wasn't in your face, but it was there. No unique noises here, not even footsteps, which are all the same for each character. (albeit credit where it's due: the footsteps do get softer the farther away a character is, though only through use of cuts) Even Arcee, the smallest Autobot had the same heavy footsteps as the titanic Prime. Another thing that bothers me to no end are the weapon and transformation noise. The transformation sound this series is awful. Not changed at all no matter what character is transforming or to which mode, and sometimes it doesn't even play when they transform. Though it doesn't even match up with any transformation. The weapons are likewise hella weak sounding. Just being "pew pew" and almost every explosion sounds the same. They don't even get unique weapon deploying sounds. What's your opinion on the sound design? I know to most sound design doesn't matter as much as voice acting or animation as far as technical aspects go, but I'm wondering if I'm the only one who's noticed.
