A GDC panel from 2015 called Soundtracking Hell featuring the Diablo 3 team including Russell Brower, Derek Duke, Neal Acree, and Joseph Lawrence is now available to watch.
Just how do you create a soundtrack for a Diablo game? The presentation looks at the distinctive audio found in the franchise starting with Matt Uelman’s excellent original score which is one of the finest and most regonisable sounds in gaming. Moving on to Diablo 3, the panel shows images from the orchestra and choir used to create the audio. It’s well worth watching this one as it highlights the amount of work required to create fantastic audio.
