An Audio Field Trip

An Audio Field Trip -

The Guild Wars 2 blog contains a fresh new post penned by James Ackley and discusses a recent 'field trip' that the audio team took to a nearby nuclear power plant to record sounds for the game. The blog post comes with some informative text and a great video of the experience.

Our main objective of the day was to get impulse responses to use later as big and very different reverbs. The idea of an impulse response is pretty simple: you make noise (a hand clap, starter pistol, tone sweeps) in an appropriate environment, record it, then use software to recreate that space in a reverb plug-in so you can get that specific reverb back whenever you want. It’s pretty fun and amazingly accurate these days. We had some big PA speakers hooked up, and we also brought a lot of random sounds to blast out in these spaces and “re-record” as well.
