MetadataShow full item record
This paper will explore the various aesthetic, technical, and musical issues that sound designers face when creating audio for commercial products. I will draw from my experience at and use materials from Broderbund Software. In the first section, I will discuss issues concerning interface sonification. In the second section, I will briefly illustrate a quick musical solution to a potentially large logistical problem. In the last section, I will show a solution for balancing digital audio and MIDI on a variety of devices, drivers, and operation systems.
