FMOD Studio Plugins
FMOD Studio opens up a world of new possibilities with support for 3rd party effect plugins. We have partnered with professional DSP companies, such as McDSP and AudioGaming to bring you real-time, pro level effects and processing capabilities to make your title sound a head above the rest. FMOD’s flexiple DSP architecture is open to anyone to write plugins for.
FMOD Studio currently comes with the following 3rd party plugins.
McDSP Mastering Limiter 1
McDSP’s renowned precision mastering limiter, the ML1, features a flexible brick wall look-ahead design coupled with multiple stages of limiting for superior peak detection. The unique Knee and Mode controls allow the ML1 to handle any kind of material with a variety of responses, ranging from transparent to aggressive.
Drop the ML1 onto the mixer’s master bus for completely transparent limiting of the game’s mix or use it to control dynamics or loudness on a group bus.
The ML1 is currently available for Windows, Mac, XBox 360 and PS3. (Please contact us if you would like to use ML1 on other platforms)
AudioGaming introduces the first procedural and dynamic audio weather system for FMOD Studio. Based on acoustic modelling, AudioWeather produces realistic as well as other-worldly sounds computed in real time. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the controls, the Wind and Rain parameters interact in complex ways for each weather type resulting in diverse ambiances which have great depth.
Simply drop this module onto a track, select the desired weather type and adjust Wind and Rain intensity dials to create rich surround outdoor textures. Automate the dials to have them respond to game parameters for dynamic or scripted outdoor scenes.
AudioWeather is currently available for Windows and Mac. (iOS, Android, XBOX One, PS4 platforms will be available soon, please contact us if you would like to use AudioWeather on these platforms)
The inclusion of GenAudio’s AstoundSound 3D RTI plugin into FMOD Studio allows game developers to easily integrate true 3D positional audio; the 3D RTI plugin conjoins game audio data and 3d positional data to deliver a highly accurate, true-to-life 3D spherical sound field that envelops players by placing sounds all around, including behind, to the sides, and above. Players will experience in-game audio as if they are actually ‘inside’ the game therefore significantly improving situational awareness – for example, player reaction to threats, enemies, and perception of the overall game environment.
Unlike other 3D audio solutions, AstoundSound requires no custom ear/head matching or special decoding hardware – all that is needed to enjoy the true 3D audio experience is a stereo output using any pair of headphones or speakers. AstoundSound also enhances multi-channel gaming setups by providing elevation without the need for additional speakers. All gamers can enjoy unparalleled 3D audio without any complicated configuration or setup requirements.
