New version of Audio Orchestrator

Hi Everyone,

We’re happy to announce that we’ve released the latest update to Audio Orchestrator today. Version 0.20.0 introduces new features that were needed when we built three pilot experiences in the second half of 2020 (Decameron Nights, Pick A Part, and Monster), as well as some that came about through discussions on the forum.

Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of a Windows version of the tool. Hopefully this means that a new group of producers can start experimenting with Audio Orchestrator.

This new version also includes updated behaviours.

  • The Images and effects behaviour can be used to add timed images and/or coloured lighting effects to audio objects (for example, as seen in Monster). Because the images are attached to audio objects, they can use the same powerful allocation rules, so you’re in control of the images that are shown on the different devices.
  • A Gain adjustment if behaviour can be used to conditionally alter the level at which an object is replayed.
  • A new Every Nth number comparison operator makes it easier to match repeating patterns of numbers—for example, it can be used to send an audio object to every 4th device.

The documentation has been updated, and there are some other small updates and bug fixes which are detailed in the change log.

Audio Orchestrator was first released in July 2020, with a small update the following month (which added support for stereo files). It’s been used by lots of creators since then, and we really appreciate the pilots that have been shared, conversations on the forum, and engagement with surveys. Please let us know how you get on with this new version!
