Besides the fact that both activities take place in front of computer screens—and can both give you massive eye strain, leading to immense frustration—audio engineering is as far away from the gaming world as you can get.
Or is it? With this new initiative from Grammy nominee Jonathan Wyner and the designers at iZotope, the secrets of music production, engineering and mastering have been turned into an interactive game that both challenges and trains your ear. Have you ever wondered what compression is? Or how to nail that right frequency with your EQing? Well, the Pro Audio Essentials challenge will have you creating startling dynamics and huge side-chained kicks in no time.
