Sound in VR Games, and in VR environments in general

Vincent Percevault (G4F)

VR is in all mouths today, but what about the sound in VR environments?!   We don't see or hear any revolution coming in. We are still using the same technologies :

  • Realtime 3D audio spatialisation, and binaural downmix for realtime 3D rendered environments
  • Ambisonic, sound fields or different multi-mics setups for live sound acquisition, then edited and spatialized in different tools for a final sound rendering on a VR Headset setup
  • A mix of the two...

Let's share some benchmarks and check together what could be the next good idea for the improvement of the audio chain, either for 3D sounds acquisition or 3D sound rendering with headphones setup.
