The hero lies in wait for the winds of change to blow their favorable tidings across the wind-swept field of battle.

Equipped with an understanding of these ancient ways, there can be no failure- he has the tools at hand and the power of the past to create the ultimate good.
A comprehensive pipeline to utilize MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) in conjunction with synthesis and sound samples is a powerful combination. The standardized MIDI format is at the heart of every modern DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and serves as an interoperable format that communicates note, velocity, and other control information for playback. This data can be mapped to sound samples or synthesizers within Wwise to create efficient workflows for music or sound design. The power and flexibility of MIDI is well documented as part of a DAW workflow and the benefit of this format is available within Wwise.
