Euphonious awarded £25,000 grant from the Abertay Prototype Fund
21st October 2011
Euphonious has been awarded a grant totalling £25,000 from the Abertay Prototype Fund which will allow the company to begin development of a complete audio middleware solution aimed primarily (but not exclusively) at mobile and social network game developers.
The solution will allow game developers to add high quality audio to their titles in a fraction of the time and effort currently required, and uniquely, unlike existing audio middleware solutions, without an in-depth understanding of audio.
With almost two decades of game audio development experience, including over a decade designing and creating game audio engines, including those used in the Grand Theft Auto series of games, Euphonious founder, Raymond Usher has a unique perspective on the issues faced by game developers.
Euphonious will use the grant to begin development of a complete audio solution which will provide game developers with a "plug and play" approach to audio integration, something which existing audio middleware solutions are unable to offer.
The development of this audio middleware solution forms the second phase of Euphonious's strategic development plan which has the primary aim of providing high quality and cost effective audio solutions for the new generation of game developers. The first phase, entitled "Audio Skins", is due to be launched in the coming weeks.
