Audiokinetic Wwise certified!

Ryan Baldwin

I recently passed the Audiokinetic Wwise certification course, which covered the core concepts of using Wwise to implement audio into a 3D game. Audio middleware like Wwise gives sound designers (or audio Wwizards) a ton of power, and puts less of a burden on game programmers. It's a night and day difference from just rendering out audio files, and triggering them when an event happens in game. I particularly enjoyed learning about how straightforward Wwise makes optimizing audio for multiple platforms.

"Half-Life 2: Episode Two" Audio Replacement - Sound Design Reel

Ryan Baldwin

A reimagining of Half-Life 2: Episode Two's audio. All visuals belong to the developer, Valve. Sound was removed from the original gameplay trailer and entirely replaced by me, using a combination of manipulated recordings and synthesis.

I refrained from listening to the original audio while working on the project, and tried to create my own take on what the scene should sound like, while also paying homage to a great game.
