Nicolas is never out of ideas when recording sound effects for video games. His know-how and his endless imagination allow him to use turn his environment into all the sounds he wants on Fmod.
What part of your job do you like the most?
Playing the game! And tweaking audio at the same time. Sometimes it’s hard to not get hooked and to stay focused on the audio.
Which sound effect was the craziest to record?
I recorded a sound that didn’t make it in the game. There’s a room called Kitchen and at the beginning, we were testing some audio ambiances to fit in each room. I had to record myself cooking stuff, water boiling, pan-frying, cutting vegetables… Not very crazy but fun anyways.
Was it the first time you worked with voice actors? What did you learn from them and this experience?
