Game Audio Podcast #18 – Racing Games

Special Guests:

Mike Caviezel – Microsoft Sound Lab

Mike de Belle – Freelance

Tim Bartlett – The Audio Guys Ltd.

Edited by Andrew Quinn (Master of Sound)


We round up with a posse of petrol-heads huddled around a microphone over in the UK to discuss the fine art of racing game sound. This is a unique conversation with three guys who have lived deep in the bowels of vehicle engine simulations. They bring a hospitable vibe to the often elusive racing game genre and let slip more than a few tasty nuggets of wisdom.

This podcast is being released in conjunction with the Racing Game Sound Study that was undertaken by Damian and David Nichols in an effort to expose the technical side of game audio by making an assessment of current generation titles.
