What is Middleware?

Middleware is software used to implement sounds into video game engines like Unity or Unreal. Using programs like Wwise or FMOD allows you to easily add variation, distance, and realistic sound effects to your video game. It is quickly becoming the industry standard for game sound designers to be fluent in one of these programs.

Wwise offers two free courses that include a game to practice implementing sounds to actions.
