Lost Chocolate Blog: Footsteps – Informal Game Sound Study

Not the usual “What have I done with my life?” Or “Where is everything headed?” (although those questions perpetually tumble around my brain stem on a regular basis); I somehow found myself obsessed with the minute details of movement sound and system design. If you're working in games today, chances are good that you've recorded, implemented, or designed systems for the playback of character footsteps and Foley at some point during the course of your career. It's even more likely that you've played a game where, at some point during your experience, footstep sound wrestled your focus away from the task at hand and demanded your listening attention.

Yet, let it be said, all footsteps are not created equal – which seems obvious given that no two games are exactly the same, neither should their footsteps or the way in which they are implemented be (necessarily) the same. “the footstep system uses more than 1,500 original recorded samples.

If you are more interested in knowing how the ready-made software performs the trick, you will find the answers in the second part of this article.

How to Create Concatenated Audio for Mobile Apps. The increase in production of mobile phone apps in the past 3 years has opened up some excellent opportunities for the commercial composer.

How to Create Concatenated Audio for Mobile Apps

Theme songs, music timers, UI hits and level music are now needed for all mobile apps, be they functional, informational, or game programs. However, mobile app production teams face the same challenge all software development teams do - that of limited real estate. But even worse: some mobile apps can be as small as 10MB - including all art assets, programming, and your audio. Squeezing Sound into your pocket – My Audio Process for Mobiles. In the last year, I have created audio and music on around 8 unique titles for various iOS / mobile hobbyist developers.

Each of them used different game engines to get things done. In this multi-part series I want to share experiences I made with these tools along some personal thoughts. Unity Script Reference: Pause Menu Volume. I modified your script a bit.

Pause Menu Volume

If you press volume, the button will be replaced by a slider. If you press resume, the volume will be the value of the slider. I don't know what the if(waited) does, so I removed it from the update. It just stood there and did nothing. Loudness. Author: Jessy Description Unity's AudioSource.volume and AudioListener.volume use what is known as a linear taper.


Although that is ideal for performance, it means that the 0-1 values that those properties utilize do not match up well with human perception, with loud values taking up a disproportionate amount of the range.

Verdict? Lots of fun! How to Integrate Wwise into Unity. Hey there folks. I’ve decided it would probably be a great idea to start doing more hands-on stuff with both Wwise and Unity.

So, I’m going to start by showing you how to integrate the incredibly powerful Wwise middleware engine into Unity. I first got my hands on Wwise three years ago, and boy, was that program a nightmare at first. I didn’t understand how you could use sliders and graphs made of arbitrary parameters to “code” sound and then make them somehow fit into a game. I mean, the concept was there, but trying to practice Wwise in the capacity of designing sound – before I even knew how to use Unity, let alone integrate the two tools together, no less – was an incredibly huge challenge that took much longer than it rightfully should have.

So today, we’re going to set aside using both programs, and focus on making them talk to one another. A look at Unity and Sound Development « Mega Pickle. “How have you liked Unity for game audio, and was it easy to learn?” When Cicada Music joined MegaPickle as the Audio Team Lead in 2010, we had never had the opportunity to work within a game engine before. Normally the game developers we worked with would assign us the required music composition and sound effect cues with a few still images as points of reference, and we’d weave our magic, package them up and ship them off, hoping for the best. Eventually we’d get to hear and “see” our works in the beta, giving us one last opportunity for any revisions before release. MegaPickle had decided that the Perodia RPG would be best built with Unity 3D, and although the free version is robust the audio options are limited, so they assigned us a Pro license to take advantage of the additional audio filters available, allowing a greater depth of sound design to be achieved.

Game Audio: Selected Student Works from Matt Ganucheau on Vimeo. In the early days of game sound, musical soundtracks were all largely adaptive and interactive, fused with the sound effects of the game and the logic of gameplay.

Scores were less Alfred Newman or John Williams, more Spike Jones. Today, game music has the potential to reinvent composition itself, to help us reimagine what makes a musical score as on-screen user action drives musical ideas. But with a few, notable exceptions, most modern titles have opted for big, Hollywood-style soundtracks – and the linear composition that goes with them, as though someone just took a film score CD and hit play.

Procedural Audio Generator for Unity3D. Audio: Immersive 3D Audio - SECTR: Spaces, and The Connections Between Them. Game Audio in Unity. My colleague, Glen Joyner, and I presented on game audio in unity at the East Coast Game Conference last month. We discussed the strengths and weaknesses of the engine, along with how to bend the engine’s audio component to your will.
