1.04.35 FMOD Designer tool has pretty much only one option for compressed sound on PS3 and that is MP3. In FMOD Ex docs IMAADPCM is mentioned as supported format but I don’t see option for it in FMOD Designer tool.
In one of the recent topics in FMOD EX forum was mentioned that you guys are waiting on AT3 format from Sony.
Can you tell me what are your plans about other compressed audio formats for Playstation 3 in FMOD Designer tool ( ADPCM, AT3 .. atc )

That’s almost right. FSBank is an alternative to FMOD Designer. If you are using FMOD Designer, you should import the wav directly, no need to run it through FSBank. In fact, if you run it (or anything else) through FSBank and import the generated .fsb into Designer, it won’t work, which is what I was saying in my previous post.
[quote="m00":1i5r731w][quote="andrew":1i5r731w]MP2 will be available in our next release and, as mentioned in the above post, AT3 has been dropped.[/quote:1i5r731w]
Is an additional license required for (FMOD user) MP2 useage, or do you already have patent licenses in place ?[/quote:1i5r731w]
I believe it was stated in the release notes that MP2 does not require a patent license as MP3 does.

Okay, I hear what you’re saying. To make this work I need to create a multichannel wav and import it directly into FMOD Designer. Additionally, I can’t use both FSBank and FMOD Designer simultaniously because they don’t work together.
Correct on the first bit.
You can use .fsb files from FSBank while using the Event API, but you have to do everything manually using the regular C/C++ interface and you can’t import .fsb files from FSBank into your .fdp project (well, you can import them, but they won’t build).
do not try and encode ‘multichannel mp2’ it will not work, besides there being no such thing as far as i know.
FMOD’s mp2 encoder is the one people should be using, which automatically encodes from FMOD Designer anyway. This uses FSBank, which can be used as a standalone anything->fsb compiler anyway (using mp2 encoding if specified).
FMOD’s encoder and decoder support mpeg I and mpeg II to give the widest range of bitrates and sample rate support.
[quote:2oeh3yat]Man, I can’t wait for multichannel support in MP2 and XMA encoded banks. That’s going to be the best thing ever. Well, that and gapless looping in MP2 files [/quote:2oeh3yat]
Agreed! With the right kind of support, we will be able to accomplish great things in the realms of interactive and reactive score implementation.
If you’re using FMOD Designer, the best thing to do is use a program like Adobe Audition to combine the separate tracks into a single multi-channel wav file and then create an Event out of that wav. In my experience, FMOD handles up to 6 channel wav files. If you’re not using FMOD Designer, you can use FSBank to create an fsb file using the Interleaved setting. In both cases, you are currently limited to ADPCM or PCM, as mutli-channel support in MP3, MP2, and XMA is still pending (AFAIK).
[quote="brett":p8in5my9] We do support at3 for streams only though, and won’t remove that. It’s just the realtime sound fx that are the issue right now.[/quote:p8in5my9]
Is streaming at3 supported from FMOD Designer? If so, how do I set up an at3 streaming bank (My current options in Designer on PS3 seem to be MP3/MP2/ADPCM/PCM).
