I wasn’t going to bother using FMOD Designer, but after looking at all the progress made to it, I think I will probably switch over.
I was wondering however, does it create some sort of custom file package for the sound effects in the sound banks, or do you still have to have all of the individual sound files packaged with the application as well?
Basically I have seen mention of a .flv format or something similar from Designer. I am wondering if you can basically add 50 sounds to a Sound Bank, then just include that one file to your application’s directory, or if you would still need to have the 50 sound files as well.

I’m glad to hear you have decided to go with FMOD Designer. When a project is built Designer outputs two types of files: FEV and FSB(s).
The FEV contains all the event metadata and the FSB contains all the sound data. The FSB is the custom ‘FMOD SoundBank’ format which contains many sounds. It is specifically designed for high performance loading and playback. You can choose from a variety encoding formats and quality settings for the sound banks. You may choose to put the sounds from your project in multiple banks, allowing for different encoding for different types of sounds. For example: streaming MP3 for dialog and music and then load into memory ADPCM for sfx .
To answer your question, there won’t be a single file for you to put in the application directory, there is a minimum of two files, but there will be far fewer than each of the sound files.
