Assignment title

Unit 73 IG2 - CREATING A SAMPLE LIBRARY

The purpose of this assignment is to:
Learning Outcome 2 - Understand methods and principles of sound design and production.
Learning Outcome 3 – Be able to create sound assets for a computer game following industry practice.
Scenario
Sound is an essential part of the computer game experience. Forming 50% of our sensory experience, good game soundtracks 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.
Reverb Studios specialise in soundtrack production for computer games and are seeking to add to their already comprehensive
sound libraries. Reverb Studios sound libraries have been used to soundtrack a large variety of games produced over the last
decade, most recently Naughty Dog’sUncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
You are tasked with producing individual sound samples and short musical compositions for games of the following genre:
Action
Science Fiction
Retro/Classic
Fantasy
Puzzle
It is expected that you will produce sound samples through a combination of computer VST generated audio and live sound
recordings that have been manipulated and altered through VST effects plugins.
All samples that you produce will be uploaded to a centrally stored sample library and must be labelled according to producer
initials and game genre.
In addition to producing your samples and musical compositions, you must complete a glossary of terms that will require you to
research and gather definitions specific to methods and principles of sound design production. Your glossary must provide
definitions of terms specific to the following categories:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Sound design methodology (Foley artistry, sound libraries and original development).
Sound file formats.
Audio recording systems.
Audio sampling

Your glossary must, where possible connect researched definitions with your own audio production practice.
