#5163191 Anyone have experience with Wwise?

Posted by on 27 June 2014 - 03:42 AM

I find your question valid but so general at the same time, that if one would like to answer it would take a whole book. So I'll write one thing which Wwise is lacking: positioning of large objects (sound sources like rivers etc.). Otherwise it standing quite well to current sound requirements. At the first glance seems to be not to intuitive, especially for people with typical DAW experience but it is rewarding after getting under it's skin. I'm not completely convinced to FMOD Studio interface at this point, when it comes to manage hundred or tousands of sounds.

That's my two cents.

You need to find right set of parameters of effect (which needs a bit of patience) and the right order. For example try apply


  1. highpass filter
  2. distortion
  3. resample it to 8000 Hz
  4. upsample it to 44 kHz (or whatever frequency you need)
  5. lowpass filter/equalizer if needed

and you get slightly different effect https://soundcloud.com/grogon/sound-design-obama-voice-into/s-olyOb


Instead steps 3 and 4 you can use one of (many) free vst effects like this http://www.toneboosters.com/tb-timemachine/ with proper settings.



The result also depends of the way you record your voice and the voice itself. You can show that you got of your experiments.



ps: In the original sample you posted there are occasional clicks which are caused by waveform clipping. I actually don't like it but if you are after this then clip your voice sample.

Is it close enough (listen to part three)?



If yes, then you are on the right way. First you need to distort the voice. Next cut high and low frequency according to you taste. And there you go.




ps: if you resample it through 8kHz you will be even closer.

To all what is said above, which I second mostly, I would like to add batch/script processing. It is useful  a lot especially when it comes to jobs with tons of recording hours and lots of files to take care of. It also releases you from doing those boring and repetitive things and let's you to have a while with a warm cup of coffie :).
