Montreal-based Audiokinetic has today announced a new version of its popular audio pipeline solution Wwise - and cut the price of the software.
Wwise has been upgraded to version 2009.3, which includes: McDSP effects – ML1 and FutzBox; Peak meters on limiter effects; Vorbis: major memory optimizations; New & improved file packager; and Profiler data statistics.
Audiokinetic and McDSP had announced a technological partnership a few months ago – the ML1 and FutzBox plug-ins are the first results of this collaboration.
Wwise is used in over 150 game projects, including APB and Army of Two.
The firm has also confirmed that a convolution reverb will be included as part of the roadmap for Wwise for 2010, amongst other features.
“We’re pursuing our goal to see Wwise become a comprehensive platform for sound design, while answering our customers’ needs,” said Simon Ashby, VP of product strategy.
“Our users asked for more high-quality effects and a convolution reverb, so we’re delivering these, and more.”
