Designing Sound kindly reviewed our Recording Workshops course. This course comprises video taken from the workshops we ran in 2012 and 2013 on recording sounds. They were a lot of fun to run and we got great feedback from our attendees, so we decided to put all the video we'd collected into a course so those who couldn't make it to Melbourne could see what we got up to. As a bonus, we have made over 6 gig of sound recordings from different mics available as well. These are not edited, to allow our students to compare the different mic perspectives and practice editing this kind of sound themselves.

Abe's Oddysee Audio Analysis
In light of the release of the remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, we thought we’d share Stephan’s review of the original game.
Released for Playstation and PC in 1997, Abe’s Oddysee became a quick favorite of the Sound Librarian team. We played the PC version and what struck us the most at the time was how important the sound was in the game. Both the way in which the game creatures communicated, and the importance of moving quietly to avoid making sound. Sound was an integral part of the way the game functioned, which was rare in games of that era.
We can’t wait to play Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty and compare the two. Game Spot have done a review to give you a taste of what's included.
The Sound Librarian team has collectively over 15 years of experience working in games, music and sound design.
