Our presentation this month will be presented by Boston Post Mortem board member Renzo G. Heredia:

“Field Recording: How To Record Your Own Sound Design”
Sound design acts as the art of using audio and sound feedback to tell a story and give an emotion to your player. How do you find these sounds, and how can you record them on your own to make them as unique to your game as possible? Renzo will present at Boston Post Mortem to encourage you to field record your own sounds, something he does every day with his sound effects. Instead of relying on free sound libraries where effects can tend to sound the same or not be 100% satisfying, Renzo will show you how you can record sounds and even edit them on your own to make the sounds that you want for your game.
