He's done many Michael Bay movies (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Rock). Won an Oscar for Hacksaw Ridge.
uh oh, well i`ve never liked the sound design on the transformer movies, or any bay movie for that mater, its not like im worried though, the prologue sounded incredible.

Mixing isn't sound design it should be noted. Richard King is still on board for sound editing as far as I know.

Has anybody noticed all of the delays and reverse effects Ludwig is using in the film score? Super cool to see him adding on interesting elements like that. Goes along with the theme of the movie.
Ludwig is the GOAT

I'm betting not. The only element that (to me) sounds the same is the drum pattern at the end — which is easily recreated. Like it a lot tho.

When that piano kicked in as WB and Syncopy logos came, that was such an unexpected moment.

I'm a bit disappointed we didn't get to hear that part near the end of the prologue when the guy is threatening JDW in the truck. By far my favorite sound of everything we've heard.

Yep, it sounds great, but for me trailer 2 and prologue music are the best.

I’ve studied the prologue cue extensively so trust me when I say: you’re listening to Ludwig’s music. Now, that’s not to say that it’s part of the score but it’s definitely based on it.

Either Ludwig worked on it himself or collaborated with another “trailer” composer. Or they just re-worked some of his material without his direct involvement.

Most of the arpeggios are taken straight off the main theme in the prologue. Same chords just played with various synths in a different key. I wonder if we’ll hear something similar to this hardcore synth sound.

At the end you hear parts from the sizzle reel clearly.

Yup, you are 100% right. I'm still not convinced it's directly Ludwig's but maybe a custom commission piece, like Mind Heist or we've gotten for Endgame's trailers, based on the Prologue score
