Solid Audioworks, the audio team behind Madden NFL 17, recently released a video showing off the process of making the game sound amazing.
The video goes into depth on how Solid Audioworks made the distinctive tone. Recording thousands of sound effects and spending months in post, they were able to come up with something unique and authentic.
“When we first started working with EA, we knew that they wanted to do something special with the audio,” Solid Audioworks’ Will Morton said. “We did decide quite early on that we really wanted to approach this in a hyper-detailed way. We didn’t just want it to sound broadcast. We didn’t just want it to sound Hollywood. We wanted a hybrid so it was the best of both worlds.”
Going “hyper-detailed,” Solid Audioworks took many steps to deliver the unique sound experience from the game. For example, the company assigned different sound profiles to each camera angle. Going even further, it brought in American broadcasting audio hardware to deliver an instantly recognizable sound.
