Project Description

Gamers expect a detailed sonic environment, to match the stunning graphics found in a modern game. Though there are similarities with film sound, game audio and music is interactive – it changes according to events in the virtual world. Sound design and music arranging for games has its own unique set of challenges.

All the tools for this course are available for free – if you have access to a computer, headphones and a DAW, you already have everything you need to get started. There’s never been a better time to get involved in Game Audio.
