Audio Engineer
The Audio Engineer puts the sounds in the game making the player respond to reactions and sounds.
This is an example of the email I sent to them
Dear Radical,
My name is Dylan Jones and I am in my first year studying for a BTEC Extended Diploma in Creative
Media Production specialising in Games Design at Salford City College’s Eccles Sixth Form Centre. My
group are currently investigating the job roles within the games industry and I have become
interested in the area of animation.
In your experience, what technical skills and personal qualities would an effective animator have?
Any feedback based on your industrial experience would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Dylan Jones

The Audio Engineer put many sounds into the game from explosions and gun fire to voices and other
expressions.
The Audio Engineer puts the theme and mood into the game using music making the atmosphere of
the game exciting or chilling.
An Audio Engineer will have to have the skills to specify and create sound effects, script writing,
dialogue direction, recording and editing. An Audio Engineer ill also need the ability to compose and
perform music, to have creativity and imagination and to work up to deadlines.
This is a job I inquired about for a games tester for sega, there wasn’t an audio engineer.
There aren’t many known positions for a game audio engineer that I could find so I chose to inquire
about some other jobs that appeal to me. This is a position at Rockstar as an animator which I have
some confidence.
This is the email I received as feedback from the one I sent, I didn’t find this very helpful because
they didn’t give me any information as to what I require they just said they were busy & they looked
forward to seeing my application.
This I didn’t find very helpful either but out of the ones I received back this was the most helpful.
I didn’t get many results from the email I sent but I did send the email to a few other companies
such as Naughty Dog, Rock steady & Valve.
I have learned that some companies are not interested in new applicants at the minute, for the job
role of being an audio engineer I didn’t find any information which was any use from the emails I
received, because of this I had to look on the internet for an average audio engineers skills and
qualifications needed but from what I know from a previous set of work is that most jobs require a
degree in university or a long time experience in the gaming industry.
From the information I have found out from the internet the average audio engineer requires:
An audio engineer requires attending a vocational course for a year.
During the course you gain more knowledge and skills of being an audio engineer.
Requires at least a few years of experience.
To be a successful engineer you need to learn the trade of musician and some knowledge of
computer software.
