Virtual reality (VR) community Meetups are now a common event across the globe, with enthusiasts and developers gathering under a roof to talk about the latest VR developments, practises and videogames. There is already a dedicated San Francisco Virtual Reality (SFVR) Meetup, but this month has seen the announcement of another one, this time specifically focused on audio for VR experiences.
VR enthusiast Dave Arendash has launched a new Meetup group titled VR Audio. The group will be looking past the commonly discussed VR issues such as input and instead looking at how to create the most convincing VR audio experience. The group will take a look at audio spatialization, recording equipment, players, techniques, software development kits (SDK) for various development engines and much more.
The group’s inaugrual meetup is yet to receive a location or date, although those interested can sign up to hear about them as soon as they are revealed. Note that that group isn’t even specifically focused on VR videogames but all movies, mobile and even VR for the blind in which sound plays a crucial role. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all VR Meetups, reporting back with any further updates on them.
