Tsugi releases new tool for game sound designers

New from Tsugi, the developer of AudioBot and DSP Anime, is QuickAudio – a new tool designed specifically for game sound designers.

QuickAudio transforms Windows Explorer into an audio tool that integrates with game audio middleware and DAWs. For the first time on Windows, QuickAudio replaces the icons of sound files in Explorer with pictures of their waveform or spectrum allowing designers to select samples based on their frequency contents of amplitude.

QuickAudio’s QuickPlay also allows users to listen to sound files within Windows Explorer rather than having to launch a DAW. By using the context menu in Windows Explorer or the QuickEdit window, designers can edit sounds quickly (trim and crow, apply fade-ins and fade-outs, normalise, change the sample rate, channels, bit depth etc…) without ever launching a DAW.

Lastly, the selected sounds can be exported to game audio middleware (Wwise, FMOD Studio, ADX2) with QuickAudio automatically creating events and other audio objects. These can also be inserted in the timeline of Pro Tools, Nuendo, Cubase, and Reaper thanks to the tool’s spotting functions.
