Reverb Studios specialise in soundtrack production for computer games and are seeking to add to their already comprehensive sound libraries. Reverb Studios sound libraries have been used to soundtrack a large variety of games produced over the last decade, most recently Naughty Dog’sUncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. You are tasked with producing individual sound samples and short musical compositions for games of the following genre: Action Science Fiction Retro/Classic Fantasy Puzzle It is expected that you will produce sound samples through a combination of computer VST generated audio and live sound recordings that have been manipulated and altered through VST effects plugins. All samples that you produce will be uploaded to a centrally stored sample library and must be labelled according to producer initials and game genre. In addition to producing your samples and musical compositions, you must complete a glossary of terms that will require you to research and gather definitions specific to methods and principles of sound design production. Your glossary must provide definitions of terms specific to the following categories: 1. 2. 3. 4. Sound design methodology (Foley artistry, sound libraries and original development). Sound file formats. Audio recording systems. Audio sampling Your glossary must, where possible connect researched definitions with your own audio production practice. 1
