Global Software Engineering for Audio Production

Rodrigo Cordeiro, David N. Prata, and Patrick Letouze
Abstract—This paper deals with the audio production in the context of global software engineering for a distributed geographically environment. This scenario provides new opportunities in the audio industry. The aim of this study is to characterize the different parts of the audio production in an electronic game, showing the possibilities for a more cost-effective in the final product. This goal could be achieved by the use of tools available in the global software engineering industry while maintaining its quality. We used, as basis for this work, a production of 12 instrumental tracks in the model of E-REC (Electronic Recording), by the use of technological resources currently available to record the production via Web. With the proposed model it was possible to reduce costs while maintaining the quality of the entire process during the production. Furthermore, the production of audio across distant geographic regions is useful when you cannot contemplate all the necessary staff in one location. However, some challenges and risks should be taken in attention during the process of audio production regardful the geographically distant, eg. the control of the production process; the delay in the transmission of files via the web, the time set for completion of project. And hence, a possible step where the assembled of the team should be concerned.

Index Terms—Audio production, E-REC, films, global software engineering.
