Basic Programming - Part 1

You may have many classes in a game that is controlling audio, but it is a good idea to be able to trace all the decisions to one place. That way if there is a bug in your system, you can easily find and fix it. You can think of it as a team in a game company -- you have producers, programmers, artists, and musicians. Rigging a Character for Audio with MecAnim/Unity3D. Case Study: Usability Testing the Audio Mixer. In a previous blog post, “Testing the Audio Mixer”, the Audio Mixer was discussed from a Software Test Engineering point of view.

Case Study: Usability Testing the Audio Mixer

In this blog post we will pick up where we left off: involving real users in evaluating a system in development. In the Summer and Fall of 2014, we, Stine Kjærbøll (User Experience Team Lead) and Nevin Eronde (User Experience Researcher), ran three rounds of usability testing sessions with audio designers/composers from the local games industry in Copenhagen. Mixing Sweet Beats in Unity 5.0. One of the big areas of focus for Unity 5.0 has definitely been in audio.

Mixing Sweet Beats in Unity 5.0

After a quiet period of feature development in this area, we have been working hard at taking audio to a first class feature within Unity. To make this work we first had to take a step back and re-work a lot of the underlying asset pipeline and resource management of audio within Unity. We had to make our codec choices solid and ensure we had a framework that allowed you guys to have a lot of good quality sounds in your game. I’ll try and cover this in detail in a later post, but right now I want to talk about our first big audio feature offering in Unity 5.0, the AudioMixer.

Marc Breaux's Blog - Music and Sound Effects in Unity

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. After an intense bout of market research, I've come to the revolutionary conclusion that gamers like to have sound and music in their games. Grogon: a man, music composer and sfx creator. To have nice ambience of the closed places like room, cave or church you need to set up Reverb Zones.

Grogon: a man, music composer and sfx creator

But Unity 3D 4.x provides only spherical shaped Reverb Zones which doesn’t fit into a box. In order to have such a place nicely filled with the reverberation we need to use triggers to switch it on and off when the player enters the area. Setup of Reverb Zone and Trigger for Barrack 1. For simple shapes it is efficient to use Box Colliders. But there is another problem – do not cut reverb aburptly when player steps out the trigger. Listen to three cases in the scene below: Mixing Sweet Beats in Unity 5.0. Home of psai® Procedural Audio Using Pure Data and Unity 3D. Dynamics Processing: Compressor/Limiter, part 2.

In part 1 I detailed how I built the envelope detector that I will now use in my Unity compressor/limiter.

Dynamics Processing: Compressor/Limiter, part 2

To reiterate, the envelope detector extracts the amplitude contour of the audio that will be used by the compressor to determine when to compress the signal’s gain. The response of the compressor is determined by the attack time and the release time of the envelope, with higher values resulting in a smoother envelope, and hence, a gentler response in the compressor. The compressor script is a MonoBehaviour component that can be attached to any GameObject. Make Weird Stuff in Unity Tutorial.

Introduction This article presents a system—article version available here, most recent version available here—for interfacing a video game development tool, namely Unity, with some of Csound's binaural 3D sound opcodes—particularly hrtfmove2, hrtfearly, and hrtfreverb —for real-time binaural 3D sound source positioning.

The main objective of such interfacing is to have visual 3D coordinates dynamically mapped to sound-source positions in a virtual space. Csound's attributes may be accessed from within Unity's GUI, allowing non-expert Csound users to explore the power of the mentioned binaural 3D opcodes. The current text discusses the methods used for such interfacing, as well as explains its capabilities. I. The sounds of Tetrobot: from XACT to Unity. This article will expose how we handled the sounds and musics in Tetrobot and Co. using Unity Engine and some duct tape!
