Title
(EN) MULTITRACK CONTAINER FOR SOUND EFFECT RENDERING
Abstract
(EN)

Computer game sound effects (SFX) are provided to customers in a container that includes not only the audio file (such as a .wav file) of the SFX but also the information underlying the SFX, so that the customer can alter the SFX at run time or offline without having to purchase a new sound or go back to the sound provider to ask them to make the desired changes.
