Interview:M. O’Donnell of Bungie

Recently, Score Central had the opportunity to conduct an interview with Bungie’s own Audio Lead, Marty O’Donnell. Marty was kind enough to take the time out of his busy schedule to chat with us about himself and his newest project: HALO.

Here is a snipit:

SC: At first, HALO was to be released on PC. Now it is on XBOX. Did your music/sound effects suffer because of this? Or was it for the good?

MO: It is for the good. Sorry all you PC fans, but it’s true. Every PC has a different soundcard and sometimes we have to compress and dumb down the audio to work on every system and the sound suffers. The Xbox has dedicated hardware that will play and mix 256 voices in real-time, plus do it in Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It doesn’t get a whole lot better for someone like me. I can’t control what your living room speaker and amp setup is like, but at least I know that the playback hardware is the same in my living room as it is in yours.

To check out the rest, Click here. Make sure you check out the Music from Halo too. WOW!
