The Sound Architect UK: Interview with Paul Weir about No Man’s Sky and Procedural Audio:

In this episode of ‘The Sound Architect UK’, Alyx Jones speaks with game audio veteran and audio director for No Man’s Sky, Paul Weir. He talks about the process of creating a procedural soundtrack by reconstructing 65daysofstatic’s album and why music synthesis would not have fit the game. He also talks about producing the randomly-generated creatures’ voices with ten emotional states, head/body ratios and random parameters to allow for an immense number of calls. However, when it comes to his favorite kinds of sounds, he likes to keep it simple with his digital recorder.

Game Audio Hour: Ep. 112 – MRef Plus More:

This week on ‘Game Audio Hour’, Kyle Johnson and Mike Shapiro discuss the topics that delight and frustrate us in game audio. They start by announcing the winner of Izotope’s VocalSynth giveaway and talk about their M-Ref reference speakers and mixing for mobile. They also discuss the new iPhone’s stereo speakers and the infamous removal of the headphone jack, as well as their audio dev wish lists for the PS4 Slim and Neo. And since it wouldn’t be an audio podcast without DAWs coming up, they mention their favorite features in DAWs (and what is still missing) and the importance of tweakability and visual user interfaces. Perhaps by the Game Audio Hour BBQ on 25 September, we’ll see if Kyle changes his mind when he gives Reaper another chance!
