Firelight reduces price to $500 per title to reflect 'budget nature of iPhone development'

Australian middleware firm Firelight has released an iPhone version of its hugely popular FMOD music and sound effect system.

"We're proud to bring FMOD to this exciting platform. FMOD is a natural fit for the iPhone with its support for sequenced music formats such as mod and midi, compressed samples and small code size," said Brett Paterson, CEO of Firelight.

"Users can keep it small, or scale right up to take full advantage of the microphone, 3D audio and suite of DSP effects that FMOD natively supports. Being conscious of the budget nature of iPhone development we are also releasing the API at a special iPhone price of $500 USD per title – and that includes the use of FMOD Designer. By combining the power of the iPhone and FMOD we hope to see some really creative programs and hear some great sounding games."
