We just finished up the sound production on Final Approach, a very cool VR title that puts you in control of the skies, and much more. Just released for the HTC Vive on SteamVR, this game is one of those that just suits VR perfectly. It’s like an expanded version of playing with your toys as a kid.
We have worked with a bunch of the folks at Phaser Lock Interactive in the past and they brought on The Sound Department – Austin to take care of their audio needs. We provided the music, sound effects, and voices for the game as well as worked closely with the team to make sure it sounded its best.
Thanks to the Phaser Lock team for bringing us aboard, and we look forward to the next one!
The Sound Department – Austin is proud to announce that we have a new member of our team – Eddie Marianukroh! A recent UT grad, Eddie has been working with us unofficially for the past year. His musical contributions have brought many positive comments and we felt it needed to be official. Check out Eddie’s bio on the Crew page, and keep an ear out for his work in the future. Welcome aboard Eddie, let the fun begin!
Our first song for RBN has been published! Check out Sweet Rain, by the Weeping Buddhas, one of Marc’s music projects. This took a bit longer than we had hoped or anticipated, but we learned a bunch in the process and have developed a faster pipeline. Give us a shout if you want to be published on RBN.
Well we had a little set-back with our first RBN tune. Got all the authoring done, ready to submit, then found out the legals weren’t right. We learned a lot, certainly not wasted time, but a set-back nonetheless. So, working on song #2, this time the legals are all good up front. Stay tuned!
We have been working with local Austin legends Heybale! to bring a little bit of that Texas twang to the Rock Band Network. We are very close to getting this, our first tune, published on the RBN so check back for future updates.
