Overview: Porting a game from traditional console platforms to VR can be a daunting task from an audio perspective. This session will explore how this was done for a AAA PlayStation VR launch title. The talk will centre on how Ambisonics was chosen for the intermediate audio encoding format and how this helped deliver a full 3d audio soundscape whilst maintaining the mix structure for the original title and incorporating b-format recordings. Getting the best of the old and new worlds can be difficult but this may be a way in which it can be achieved for your title!
