Noise: Creating a Synthesizer for Retro Sound Effects – Introduction

by

If you're into coding you'll want to check out this new tutorial on GamedevTuts: This is the first in a series of tutorials in which we will create a synthesizer based audio engine that can generate sounds for retro-styled games. The audio engine will generate all of the sounds at runtime without the need for any external dependencies such as MP3 files or WAV files. The end result will be a working library that can be dropped effortlessly into your games. Visit the tut.
