Now that PAX West is done, it’s time to see what audio highlights you may have missed. If you couldn’t get to the panel about the sound of Guild Wars 2, you’re in luck!
Drew Cady, Jerry Schroeder, and Joseph Clark, part of ArenaNet’s sound team, go into their techniques for creating the game’s incredibly detailed sound design. They break down how they made the sounds for those soothing skimmers and feisty choyas, and they give live demonstrations of their design techniques using a thermin, talk-box, and even a five-foot balloon. And since they have their recording setup handy, why not get the audience involved, too?
