Scenario
Sound is an essential part of the computer game experience. Forming 50% of our sensory experience, and good game soundtrack
can enhance our pleasure of a computer game and help bridge the ever decreasing gap between games and more traditional
forms of storytelling such as films.
You have been commissioned by Sony Europe to produce the audio soundtracks for cut sequences that will be used in a series of
planned mission expansion packs for key game franchises due for release in 2015.
This assignment will introduce you to audio production and post-production technologies so that you will be able to produce
technically competent and professional sound assets that will used in the cut sequences of planned mission expansion packs.
You will produce voice recordings and sound assets using portable audio recording hardware, studio based production hardware
and post-production computer software using VST instruments and effects. This newly acquired audio production knowledge will
equip you with the skills needed to produce a cut sequence soundtrack.
This assignment will do the following:
 Require pitching a group idea for a computer game audio cut sequence production.
 Introduce portable audio field recording technology.
 Require the use audio field recording techniques to capture sound assets.
 Introduce studio dialogue recording technologies and techniques.
 Require the use of studio recording technologies to produce clear voice recordings.
 Introduce audio post production software and editing techniques.
 Require the application of field recording and computer audio synthesis to create a computer game audio cut sequence.
