Audiokinetic Unveils Wwise at GDC 2006

Wwise redefines audio development for interactive media (March 22, 2006)
Audiokinetic Inc. unveiled Wwise® ? WaveWorks Interactive Sound Engine® ? a middleware solution that gives sound designers and audio programmers the power to create revolutionary audio. Available in spring 2006, Wwise is a complete authoring solution and sound engine that gives game developers access to the audio capabilities of next-generation gaming technology, enabling them to create incredibly rich audio experiences in a simpler and more cost-effective way.
Designed to seamlessly integrate into the game development pipeline, Wwise simplifies the audio creation workflow by centralizing all aspects of the process in an easyto-use interface. The solution gives sound designers the ability to implement audio at every phase of development. With Wwise, users can manage sound creation in real time including prototyping, integrating, fine-tuning, profiling and final output within the context of the game. 
Wwise also helps game development teams to optimize work distribution, and lower risk by eliminating the dependencies between sound designers and audio programmers. Wwise allows each group to focus on their own creative vision. It also helps users maximize efficiency in the development process by simplifying the management of localized audio assets, making it easy to create and edit complex hierarchies of sound objects, and allowing for simultaneous multi-platform authoring. 
Additionally, Wwise makes it possible to front-load all critical authoring implementation tasks at the beginning of the production cycle, thereby freeing more time for validating designs and stabilizing the game development pipeline as a project matures.
