A digital entertainment company recently commissioned a 5.1.4 game audio studio based around Genelec Smart Active Monitors, enhancing its ability to create all-round immersive experiences for its users.
Shenzhen Leiting Digital Entertainment Company Ltd - a wholly-owned R&D subsidiary of G-bits - is one of China’s leading video games publishers, with over 45 million players across the country enjoying its mobile and PC releases.
"For a games company like ours, an audio studio is a must," said composer and game sound designer Knuckles (Jianyu) Zhang, who led the studio project. "Our requirements are quite special, though. What we want is not just a recording studio, nor a standard mixing studio or a reviewing studio. To be precise, what we want is a ‘Game Sound Lab’ to assist us in the conceptual design of games.”
Originally conceived as a surround sound studio, the acoustic design and construction of the project was handled by Qiao Zhenyu of Huanyu Acoustics, who persuaded Knuckles (pictured below) to go fully immersive.
