Something new is coming to Wwise!
We feel that it is important to always be one step ahead of the audio technology game, to make sure that the games industry has access to the best audio creation tools around.
Over the past few years, Wwise has proven itself to be the leading global provider of cross-platform audio solutions for the gaming and interactive media industries, including AR/VR/MR and Location-Based Entertainment. One of the key areas of focus when it comes to innovating for Wwise is the development of plug-ins. Be it, Convolution, Reflect or any of the SoundSeed plug-in offerings, Audiokinetic has sought to add as much as it can to Wwise, and plug-ins is ‘where it’s at’.
“But, what are you getting at?” you may ask. Well, I think you know where we are going with this… and yes… it’s true… Audiokinetic has done it AGAIN! That’s right, announcing a brand new source plug-in for the most powerful interactive audio authoring toolset on the planet!
The Reaggaetone Generator!
Backed by popular demand
I know, I know… it’s been a long time coming, and we are very happy to announce that the Reggaetone Generator source plugin is finally complete AND IS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW! Yes, you read this right, you can now download the Rggaetone Generator!
But… what does it do?
What does it not do is more like what you should be asking!
Here the low-down:
32 step MIDI sequencer for when those sweet latin beach beats need somethin’ extra
Choose from a vast list of some of your favorite time signatures like : 4/4 and 8/8!!
A Rhythmic Complexity property that lets you switch from normal reggaeton, complex reggaeton, or simply lets you author your beats manually (disclaimer: you may have to brush up on your binary to decimal number conversions)
Import your own samples
Set your own tempo
(Patent Pending) groove parameter to really “humanize” your reggaeton and make it sound as real as it can! It’s like you were actually playing it live!
I think I want to try it out..
Awesome!! It's available for a limited time only. Download the Reggaetone Generator, and install it through the Wwise Launcher before the end of April!
Note: Requires Wwise 2018.1.6, comes with no guarantee.
P.S. April Fools!
