What everyone has heard about from the new Google I/O conference, whether touch screens are the future of pro audio, Apple’s hardware stability for developers, how important data management is and how everybody does it, how composers compose for games, (how did he come up with that Ork theme), how different composing has become with so much space available on the game, how controlled user experiences can be for the sake of narrative, and since the podcast actually managed to give something away, were gonna do it again!!
