Game Audio Retreat

May 6 - May 11

Event Navigation

5 days in the mountains studying game sound design and implementation with one of the top game audio pros in the world. May 6-11, 2018

Recording Boot Camp presents this all-inclusive event that will include sound effects design and recording workshops hosted by Mark Kilborn, a Principal Audio Designer for Activision. We will spend a week working together to make new sounds, share workflow ideas, listen and critique work together, participate in one-on-one mentoring and, of course, eat amazing food, play golf, make new friends and explore the fun activities Capon Springs has to offer. This event is aimed at sound designers with some professional experience behind them. You are encouraged to bring a portable recording kit if you own one, as there are a number of great sounds hiding in the landscape.

Game Audio Retreat will include discussions and workshops on the following topics:
– Game audio concepts and workflow, from DAW to game engine
– Gun/explosion sound design
– Guerrilla foley recording on a tight budget
– Field recording: building your kit, recording sounds, cleaning them up
– Growing and managing your own sound effects library
– Worldizing sounds through DSP and speaker and mic setups
– Sound design, source generation ideas and workflows
– Mixing for games

There will also be a special Q&A session with John Rodd, one of the top Game Music mixers (World of Warcraft, EA Star Wars: Battlefront, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Mass Effect 3)

The Game Audio Retreat is a sister program to the music recording focused Mountain Recording Retreat and the Mountain Songwriting Retreat that are taking place concurrently . The education component of the three programs is separate but both groups will be together for meals and social activities.

  • Trains Distant Trains Play Track 68 sounds included, 200 mins total $59 $49

    Distant Trains Sound Library delivers impressive multi-channel recordings of trains that pass by in a distance of at least 300 meters up to 1.5 kilometres.
    Included are pass bys of freight, commuter and passenger trains plus single locomotives.
    In order to capture the impressive walls of sound caused by passing trains an arrangement of 6 microphones was used. This setup encompasses stereo-pairs of MKH3040-MS, MKH8090-ORTF and MKH8040-WideAB. All pairs are recorded to separate files that are now available as time-aligned Reaper sets.
    Each recording session took place at nights so that it was possible to capture extremely long approaches and tails that fade out to natural and calm night ambience without any disturbance by road traffic or other unwanted noises.

  • Sci-Fi Static Space Play Track 155 sounds included $28

    Static Space is a collection of 155 space or Sci-Fi sound effects, focused on continuous, seamless loops. Instead of fly-by's and accelerations, you get the sounds of space ships going at cruise speeds or idling. If you need motion, just add panning, fades and doppler as you like.

    Here are plenty of loops for designing alien environments, including engine rooms, general room tones, strange transmissions and more. Additionally, I have made sure to add plenty of variety; both in terms of moods, frequency content and tonality. Some of these are unmistakably space sound effects, while others are more ambiguous, and could be used for other high tech environments as well.

    You will find both low- and high end sweeteners, so when ever you see the words “rumble” or “low end” in a file name; watch that master fader! Furthermore, I went for a strong, almost musical tone, in some sounds, while others are much more noise-based and abrasive.

  • Weather Wind In Broadleaf Trees Play Track 42 sounds included, 66 mins total $20 $15

    Wind In Broadleaf Trees is a collection of recordings focusing on wind through broadleaf trees. Recorded in a Swedish forest in October it is representative of the most common broadleaf trees in Europe and other areas with a temperate climate.

    In this collection I wanted to capture evocative and emotional wind sounds, from the soothing and relaxing soft winds, tense moderate winds, dramatic strong winds and the transitions between the different emotions or speeds of wind.

    The collection was recorded at 24 bits 96Khz with an A-B stereo setup. It contains both longer files, with two minutes and more in length and shorter files edited to be a seamless loop. The files also come with embedded metadata.
