Overview: How can developers use sound to really sell the illusion of reality (or hyper-reality) in VR experiences? Is customized HRTF the answer? Should they rely on sophisticated algorithms? What about binaural recording or other pre-rendered solutions? This talk discusses a multiple-solution approach, as utilized to deliver The VOID's debut virtual reality experience. Hardware control, current gen software algorithms, and pre-rendered assets are discussed, including pros and cons. All aspects of audio for the experience will be addressed, such as sound, VO and music. To round out the talk, Chance will offer suggestions for future innovation and improvement.
