When developing new applications or tiny games with SDL, OpenGL or small3D, a requested and valuable feature is adding sound effects, raising alarms or creating new atmospheres. With this feature in mind and thanks to the work of FMOD and Miguel Hernando we announce today a new block that incorporates all the functionality to your project: EasySound.
What does fmod do?
EasySound wraps the main functionality of the low-level fmod api and can deal with different kinds of sound files and formats: mp3, wav, ogg. FMOD is an audio tool developed by Firelight Technologies focused on the development of professional video games. It has been used in over 2000 games and has integration with well-known game engines such as Unity or Havok.
At EasySound block, there is a simple class called EasyPlayer which is a very straightforward way to handle sounds.
