Sound on Sound Published Results of Game Sound Survey
Sound on Sound Magazine has published the results of a salary survey for the game audio business conducted by GameSoundCon, which produces an annual conference for video game music and sound design.
"Brian Schmidt, GameSoundCon’s executive director, wanted a more accurate picture of what the audio domain really looked like. He noted a survey released earlier in the year by Gamasutra, the UK–based trade site for the industry, which seemed to indicate that audio professionals in that business earned an average salary of over $95,000 — more than any other personnel category apart from company executives. Was it too good to be true?"
