  1. I have a degree in music, and I have mixed a lot of live shows, I have also done voiceover. I really want to get into this industry. What is the best way to get a foot in the door? 

  2. What has been your favorite project you have worked on thus far?

  3. Thanks for great articles Rodney. In your “featured sound designer of the month” photo on this site, it seems like you are using alot of hardware. Can you tell what kind of hardware boxes you use, what you use them for, and which is which on the picture?
    Thanks alot:-)
    Best wishes,

  4. Hi Rodney,

    What sort of things do you look for in new talent? Is it also worth learning C++ as well as audio middleware tools?

  5. Hi Rodney! Thanks for doing this!
    I have a few questions, if you wouldn’t mind answering them, or something like them, to some degree!

    How often do you find yourself needing to use sounds that you didn’t record yourself, or using any synths?

    How often, if ever, do you get useable results from severe pitch or speed (or both) alteration of any recordings?

    Any tips for using convolution or vocoding, or similar in sound effect design?


  6. Hi Rodney,

    As an Audio Director, How do you make sure that your team of sound designers, audio programmers and composers share the same vision regarding the game audio.

    Also, What kind of  word description (adjectives, verbs or onomatopoeia) approaches do you have for your sound design team, so that everyone is on the same page?


  7. I never thought I would find such an everyday topic so enthrllinag!
