Audiokinetic Debuts WWise 2009.3 Game Audio Tool
Video game audio solution provider Audiokinetic has released Wwise 2009.3, the latest version of its award-winning audio pipeline solution, including a number of notable new enhancements.
Wwise 2009.3 introduces new features and enhancements, including access to two McDSP plug-ins. The upgrade includes the following new features and enhancements:
- McDSP effects: ML1 and FutzBox
- Peak meters on limiter effects
- Vorbis: major memory optimizations
- New & improved file packager
- Profiler data statistics
Audiokinetic and McDSP had announced a technological partnership a few months ago, and the ML1 and FutzBox plug-ins are the first results of this collaboration.
The Montreal-based company, whose tool is used by companies such as High Voltage and Frontier Developments, also gave a sneak-peek of its roadmap for Wwise for 2010, and revealed that new features will include a convolution reverb.
“We’re pursuing our goal to see Wwise become a comprehensive platform for sound design, while answering our customers’ needs,” said Simon Ashby, VP Product Strategy, Audiokinetic. “Our users asked for more high-quality effects and a convolution reverb, so we’re delivering these, and more.”
