Lesson 2: Designing a Soundscape

Lesson 3: Understanding Game Syncs

Game syncs, such as States, Switches, and Game Parameters, communicate changing conditions in the game. Learn how to use this information to modify which sounds play and or how they’re heard.

Lesson 5: Understanding Audio Signal Flow

Games can have thousands of sounds that all need to find their way to the speaker. Learn how to organize, manage and modify your game’s audio signal flow using busses, auxiliary sends and effects.

Lesson 6: Finalizing the Mix

Learn to use Soundcaster to simulate gameplay and hear how your mix sounds, even when a playable version of a game isn’t available. Then, use the Wwise Mixing Desk or even an external control surface to audibly balance the sounds, and place the finishing touches on your game’s mix.

Lesson 7: Optimizing Your Game

It doesn’t matter how good your game sounds, if it uses too many resources at runtime, your implementation is unusable. Discover specific Wwise features for managing and monitoring memory and processor use.
