Lesson 7: Optimizing Your Game

You can have the most amazing soundscape for a game, but that’s irrelevant if it can’t be rendered using the available resources in an end user’s game system. For this reason, game audio integration is really an exercise in the art of doing more with less.

Wwise provides powerful features that allow you to maximize efficiency when you integrate sound into your game without sacrificing creative and sonic integrity. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to minimize the size of audio assets and conserve RAM and CPU usage. One of the most powerful aspects of Wwise is that up until now, you’ve been able to focus on the creative side of things and not concern yourself with sound engine performance factors. Now you’ll learn how you can scale a project to work within memory and performance budgets.
