Fresh on the coat tails of BYOND converting to use FMOD 3 for sound, the folks at Firelight Technologies released FMOD Ex
. Now BYOND has FMOD Ex and the sound interface is more powerful than ever. We'll give you all the details when it is released, but here are some of the juicy tidbits:
- Music formats, even midis, are no longer distinguished from other sound types. You can do anything to a song that you could do to any other sound, including place it in a 3D soundspace complete with environmental reverb! (Sadly, reverse playback won't work for sequenced music formats, but everything else is fair game.)
- 26 predefined reverb environments for 3D sounds with more detailed control over the reverb settings for each sound channel.
- Control over volume, pan, frequency, mute status, and paused status.
- Update sound settings while they are playing, for specific channels or all channels at once.
