Version 2009.3 of Audiokinetic's popular audio tool rolls out, hints for 2010 plans

Montreal-based Audiokinetic has today announced a new version of its popular audio pipeline solution Wwise - and cut the price of the software.

Wwise has been upgraded to version 2009.3, which includes: McDSP effects – ML1 and FutzBox; Peak meters on limiter effects; Vorbis: major memory optimizations; New & improved file packager; and Profiler data statistics.

Audiokinetic and McDSP had announced a technological partnership a few months ago – the ML1 and FutzBox plug-ins are the first results of this collaboration.

Wwise is used in over 150 game projects, including APB and Army of Two.

The firm has also confirmed that a convolution reverb will be included as part of the roadmap for Wwise for 2010, amongst other features.

“We’re pursuing our goal to see Wwise become a comprehensive platform for sound design, while answering our customers’ needs,” said Simon Ashby, VP of product strategy.

“Our users asked for more high-quality effects and a convolution reverb, so we’re delivering these, and more.”

The firm has also subsequently detailed a new pricing structure for the software - click here to find out more.
