Chapter 7. Ideal Production > The Fat Pipeline

The Fat Pipeline

One of the most important aspects of production is the proper linking of tasks with techniques to achieve the desired results. In this section I will discuss how to streamline your production chain to create high-quality assets—music, sound effects, and voice. In his excellent book The Fat Man on Game Audio: Tasty Morsels of Sonic Goodness, George Alistair Sanger describes his music-writing process in a good amount of detail, including information about the computers and software he uses. This is perhaps the best practical information in the book and is absolutely fascinating. Don't let the fact that I was its technical editor deter you from buying a copy.

George's book is the primary source for much of the solution I will present for music and sound effects production. To illustrate this process, I have created a version of the development process map and affectionately called it the Fat Pipeline (Figure 7.1).
