First of all, really nice job with the interactive music feature. It will let me save a lot of time on my music-based project.
However, I noticed what seems to be a bug :
When I merge two projects, the music cues, themes, and parameters of the second file are not merged into the first.
It’s not that big a deal, but it’s worth warning.

Unfortunately we never got around to implementing music merging. Currently we are all hard at work on FMOD Studio which will feature a completely revamped music system with much more functionality. I can’t reveal too much about the features of FMOD Studio but I can tell you interactive music has been a high priority.
Thanks for your response. Well, in our case we are still fairly early in the audio development for our project, so we have switched to a one-big-project model rather than the many-fev’s model we had originally intended with little issue.
We’re very excited to see what FMOD Studio will bring.. have you any teasers for us? 😉
We don’t have anything we’re quite ready to make public just yet, but I can assure you development is progressing rapidly and there are some big new things on the way. If you’re planning on attending GDC this year, you should swing by the FMOD booth and have a play around with FMOD Studio.
As Ben alluded, we do not currently plan to implement support for merging music when merging projects in FMOD Designer. While we will continue to provide bug fixes for Designer 2010 for the time being, we are avoiding adding any substantial new features, and will not release any new major versions; This is so that we can focus our efforts on Designer’s successor, FMOD Studio.
I strongly advise you to consider using FMOD Studio for your next project; It already supports full and partial project merging, its music system has significantly fewer limitations than that of Designer, and its revision control integration makes it a lot easier to work collaboratively on a single project.
[quote="ben":ku5kqcb3]Hi, thanks for the report.
Currently merging music data is not supported. We do plan to support this in the future; watch for it in an upcoming release.
Are you guys still planning on adding this feature? Please do! I, and I’m sure many others, would find this feature really quite useful.
