Master Class: Game Audio

Audio Director Florian Füsslin, Lead Software Engineer Thomas Wollenzin, and Audio Designer Dominik Zingler present an unmissable Game Master Class.

Audio helps truly immerse your players in your game and will enable and enhance your project's gameplay. In our latest CRYENGINE Master Class, you'll hear from three incredibly experienced developers, Audio Director Florian Füsslin, Lead Software Engineer Thomas Wollenzin, and Audio Designer Dominik Zingler. In under an hour and a half, they give a comprehensive overview of how to work with game audio in CRYENGINE. This Master Class is packed with practical techniques and insight gained from working on Crytek games like Hunt: Showdown.

This Master Class uses the CRYENGINE Audio Showcase Level as a learning tool, which you can download for free from the CRYENGINE Marketplace. The presentation covers audio production as a whole, an overview of the core concepts in CRYENGINE's audio system, the audio setup process in CRYENGINE, how to use ambient sounds like echo and reverb, and an overview of audio code. The presentation also includes a Middleware tutorial using FMOD as an example, which you can follow along with by using the CRYENGINE Audio Showcase Level. This section contains an overview of the FMOD interface, creating and populating a sound bank, adding trigger spots to a level, making ambient sounds that loop continuously, creating a sound bank for particle effects, the debugging process, and more.

In addition to downloading the CRYENGINE Audio Showcase level, you can also use the written documentation and the original video tutorial.

This Master Class is aimed at those with some experience with game development and CRYENGINE. If you are completely new to our engine, we recommend that you download our beginner's course, which shows you how to make a complete game with CRYENGINE, or watch the tutorial on our YouTube channel.
