Another multi-subject podcast, we dig into the past month of our lives. Gord took a whirlwind trip to Paris to exhibit Wandersong at Indiecade Europe, while Matt went to GameSoundCon to give a talk on the Mark of the Ninja Remaser and take part in a panel on advising composers interested in getting into sound design. We discuss losing gigs that were totally-in-the-bag, working while a bit rusty, taking things one at a time during stressful period. Oh and Korean food & architecture.
This time around we actually talk about cats. As well as general life, studio expansion, answer some questions and dig into Gord's recenct blog post on being an ethical employer.
You can find that blog post on the Audiokinetic site at https://blog.audiokinetic.com/dream-job-ethical-employment-in-game-audio/
Episode 51 and we dig into a bit of mid to later career growth and motivation. And general how to keep up motivation as well. And of course we dive into some questions from everyone.
Also happy again to have Pro Sound Effects advertising with us again. We get into another great Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet library called Cinematic Winds that they provided to us for this ad. As part of this, PSE has been awesome enough to give us a discount code for all our listeners. If you use the code BEARDS you'll get 15% off both the Industrial Sounds With Soul or the new Stallion libraries. You can see this and all their other libraries at www.prosoundeffects.com and follow them on twitter at @prosoundeffects
So recently Gord started the hashtag #gameaudiotips on twitter. He started posting a good tip every day. I thought it was great so I jumped in on it as well. And then some others joined in too. This episode we go over some of the ones we thought have been great so far. And then we answer some questions too.
Again we're happy to have Pro Sound Effects advertising with us again. This time we go over Stallion, another library from Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet. Again, this is a good one.

This year at GDC we got another interview recorded. We sat down with Carley Nyte and chatted about a bunch of stuff. You can find her on twitter at @carlyenyte and hear her work in the next project from Camouflaj.
As well this episode we're very happy to have Pro Sound Effects advertising wtih us. We give a little run down on what we think about the Industrial Sounds With Soul library from Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet. Spoiler, we like it.

This was a big episode for us. With some help from some friends we hosted a night of live podcast recording while we were at GDC 2018. It was an amazing time. DB Cooper was our amazing guest who chatted with us about doing voice acting in games. Monument.house was kind enough to lend us their space. And Kim from gretta.com was who made that happen and was kind of her big idea in the first place. Thanks for everyone that came out. And if you didn't or couldn't, here's the recording!
Here again for episode 47. We talk about getting people on board with audio and how to communicate around that. And how to analyze reference sounds and music to give clients what they're looking for. And we answer some questions.
If you're going to GDC and see this before then, we're doing a live recording of our next episode and hang out.
We run through a few things this time around. We talk about conferences and figuring out if they're worth it. Inspired by some Twitter posts by @jaymfernandes. We run down some stuff we learned at Audio Bash. We talk about some big time failures we've had lately. Answer some questions. And talk about cars for a bit.
As well from our announcments, Gord's soundtrack to Full Metal Furies is out. You can pick it up here. https://ashellinthepit.bandcamp.com/album/full-metal-furies
And Matthew is looking for speakers for CarouselCon 2018. It's free and takes place during lunch time at GDC. More info here. http://wootwootsound.com/carouselcon-2018/
A day late but we're still calling this the last of 2017 episodes. We talked about some random small topics this time and fielded some questions.
This month we decieded to cover some basics. We go over a bunch of terms and ideas that make up game audio and how we do things. This is mostly ment for developers and beginners. And to hopefully generate questions and more ideas for us to cover. If you're thinking of doing your own audio but have no idea where to start, or how to talk to an audio person, this could be a good place to start.
Calling this one part 1 cause we want to hear from our listeners on what we missed, what you disagree with or need to correct. Let us know and we'll build up part 2.
As well we talk about a quick bit about Mattia Cellotto's new dry ice library. More info available here - https://www.asoundeffect.com/sound-library/ultrasonic-dry-ice/
