#4983374 A Handy Starting Guide for Audio Programming

Posted by on 24 September 2012 - 03:47 PM

Our pal at Creating Sound, Christian Floisand, has put together a list of resources and sites that will help our peeps who enjoy programming make the transition to the audio side of things.

Heading into the world of audio programming may seem a little daunting at first, even with prior programming experience. There are quite a number of tools and languages available in this area, so I decided to put together this little primer containing various resources to learn more about this fascinating corner of the programming world.


Hope you enjoy!


#4970202 Saving Space with Linear Audio in Pro Tools (Part 1)

Posted by on 16 August 2012 - 09:22 AM


When working on projects with limited audio space, such as apps for mobile, browser-based games or packaged electronics/toys, it is often necessary to squeeze as much out of that space as possible in order to meet or exceed the expectations of the project. From the standpoint of the sound designer, this is likely achieved through compressing the sound files in various ways. However, when working with linear audio that contains gaps of silence or recalls repeated audio, precious space can be saved by editing within your Pro Tools session and exporting the resultant files and session data for programming. While the processes for identifying and editing these two elements are different, their functionality in implementation is essentially the same. In Part 1, I cover the process for getting started, staying organized, and identifying and removing silent gaps.
