Welcome to the Interactive Audio Special Interest Group!

Since 1994, the IASIG has been serving the game audio community with standards, guidelines and free resources to improve workflow, bring people together and push the state of audio tools and techniques forward. Whether it’s specifications like i3DL2 or our Game Audio Education Curriculum Guidelines, the IASIG has been giving back to the industry for over two decades.

If you’re here for the first time, welcome! We are excited to be partnering with the IGDA and we want all IGDA members who have an interest in volunteering to work on audio issues to join us, introduce yourself, let us know what you’d like to work on and a little about yourself.

We’ve extended the offer for IGDA members to get free IASIG membership. Simply visit this link and register.

We’ve got two exciting events at GDC 2022!

Thursday, March 24th from 12:45-1:45pm PST
The IASIG Town Hall is the event that started audio discussions at GDC back before there were any audio sessions. Join fellow game audio educators, sound designers, composers, audio programmers, and other audio professionals at the Interactive Audio Special Interest Group (IASIG) Town Hall. Get an update on current IASIG efforts, and share your own ideas, suggestions, and recommendations for improving the state of the art in audio for interactive media. If you do audio, come and be heard. Check the Events page for more information on this year’s Town Hall!

Gaming For Cars? You bet! Car Audio Cardio Roundtable (Presented by the IGDA)
Friday, March 25 from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm PST
The Interactive Audio Special Interest Group of the IGDA presents a look at automotive audio and how development of autonomous vehicles may present surprising opportunities for game audio professionals.

Join this session that includes experts from Audiokinetic, Bose Automotive, and the MIDI Association to discuss the future of autonomous vehicles, and how this growing market is ripe for game audio professionals to make their mark.

You will gain an understanding about the current state of autonomous vehicles, audio needs for future vehicles, and how tools are in development for sound designers and composers to be a part of it all.

This Roundtable is perfect for Sound designers, composers, audio engineers, and anyone involved in audio for games.
