Overview: A 5mb audio footprint with a high-quality bar expectation? It can be accomplished. Take a look at how the PopCap audio team met this challenge for Peggle Blast, a mobile version of their Peggle franchise. Using a combination of MIDI music, procedural audio synthesis, and audio logic integration, the PopCap team was able to deliver a product with over 30 minutes of interactive music and hundreds of dynamic sound effects. This talk will go in-depth on the audio creation, starting with the esthetic inspiration through content creation and implementation.
