AudioSkins - New Audio Solution for Games Launched By Euphonious
9th December 2011
Dundee, Scotland. December 9th 2011. AudioSkins is a revolutionary new concept in 'shrink wrapped' original audio for video game developers, animators and film makers, created by interactive audio experts Euphonious.
AudioSkins offers developers and creators the opportunity to browse, preview, demo and purchase a complete audio pack for their project, no matter what platforms or devices it is destined for. The pack can be used as is, or customised to meet specific requirements.
Each AudioSkins pack is designed around a single theme, creating a cohesive, comprehensive audio pack for a specific game type. Each pack contains a title track, a looping in-game track, positive/negative sound effects, win/lose jingles and user interface sounds. Each component can also be bought individually to ensure every developer and creator can benefit from the AudioSkins solution.
Every AudioSkins track is provided in high quality 16bit 44.1 Khz stereo .wav format.
Developers can browse by game genre or musical style as well as download demos of the tracks to ensure their suitability.
There is no platform-specific licensing for AudioSkins, ensuring every developer can benefit from the service's low cost and wide variety of musical styles.
AudioSkins also offers deals on exclusivity or 'buyout' options, giving developers exclusive rights to a specific AudioSkin.
Raymond Usher, the founder of Euphonious, creator of AudioSkins, said, “Smaller developers, one man teams and companies working on very tight timescales and budgets often find it incredibly difficult to acquire high quality audio for their games. AudioSkins was created specifically to give this new generation of developers a way to find, buy and customise a complete pack for their game, no matter what platforms it is destined for. We can offer an off-the-peg solution, or work with the developer to customise the pack and create something entirely new. Everything from the browsing and genres, through to the costs, exclusivity and business model have been tailored to make it as simple and cost effective as possible for creative companies to acquire high quality audio.”
AudioSkins is now open for business -
