psai® is the first dedicated Interactive Music Engine on Unity. psai® was designed by videogame composers with a main focus on ease-of-use and musical adaptivity. It enables you to achieve highly interactive music which adapts automatically to your gameplay, whilst making the process of creating and controlling the music as easy and convenient as possible.
Check out ouror for a hands-on experience!
In 2007, at the time we started working as audio service providers for videogames, we have been very much intrigued by the potential of adaptive videogame music. In collaboration with our clients we have strived towards creating interactive soundtracks which emotionally connect players with the gameplay and the story in order for them to have an intense movie-like experience.
Approaching the concepts of interactive music from a technical point of view, we realized pretty quickly that if you want to achieve truly complex adaptivity, the whole process of creating and then controlling the music soon gets enormously cumbersome. Which is why developers and composers often refrain from it - there have been simply no tools available which are powerful and easy to use at the same time.
That is what motivated us in 2008 to start putting our conceptual ideas for interactive videogame music and our experience as composers into the development of psai®. First we started developing a native version for PC which has since been successfully used in a number of commercial projects. In 2014 we finished porting psai® to the Unity game engine in order to make its features available to a larger audience. psai® for Unity is completely written in C# without any native code involved, so it works on all of Unity’s target platforms, both with the free and the professional version of Unity.
In collaboration with Mount & Blade developer Taleworlds Entertainment and game audio specialists Dynamedion we have been creating a very unique psai® soundtrack. Historical medieval live instruments, a "Conan-like" orchestral maintheme and lots of thrilling battle music support the dense atmosphere of this epic game. We are very much looking forward to its release in 2015!
Our first commercial psai® release. It carries on the fabulous tradition of using adaptive music in point-and-click adventures.
Happy with what they achieved with psai® in their Black Mirror III game, developer Cranberry Production and publisher dtp entertainment decided to go for psai® also with their following release.
After two successful releases for which we contributed psai® music, it was time to let other composers work with psai®. Yes, it worked out well. :-)
psai® was designed by videogame composers, who found that the approaches of conventional game audio middleware to interactive music were either not flexible enough or too complicated, so they could not achieve the desired level of adaptivity and dramaturgy. In most approaches to interactive music you need to manually define paths through your musical timeline, making the authoring process both tedious and error prone. With psai® you can achieve a more adaptive and and more complex interactive soundtrack without going gray. It also has some very unique features such as controlling music's intensity level, automatic recombination of segments and pausing, gameplay driven playback logic etc. which provide great potential for creating impressive interactive soundtracks for your game.
Yes, psai® is completely written in C# without any native or platform-specific code.
You get the full sourcecode. The only DLL that's internally referenced by psai is the .NET implementation for Google protobuf, written by Marc Gravell. The sourcecode is available here.
Yes. You need to import them by using the psai® Editor but once this is done you will be able to use them in the same way you are used to from other tools. However, to benefit from psai's features you need to slice up your audio track in musical segments and classify their intensity, as shown in the tutorial videos.
No, that doesn't make much sense. psai® was designed around the complex requirements of interactive music, which is much different from handling SFX. You may use psai® for SFX-like atmospheric background tracks, though.
No. psai® suits any kind of game. Due to its simplicity, you may have a lot of fun using it for your puzzle game or your platformer as well. Choose a groovy playful track and use psai® to connect its intensity level to the elapsed time or any other element which is critical in your game. The psai® music will support your gameplay nicely. You also will for sure enjoy the increased musical variety due to psai®'s recombination of musical segments. No more boring loops!
From a technical perspective, this approach makes it possible that you never have to worry about switching Themes on or off. Instead, you just place Trigger-Events in your game world, in a fire-and-forget-manner. When there are no Triggers firing, the music will eventually calm down.
From an emotional perspective: As we were discussing the basic design of psai® in an early phase of development we agreed that psai® first of all should be closely connected to principles of human emotions. The decreasing intensity is one of those basic principles. Think of a situation which upsets you: As soon as there are no more "triggers" - because you maybe left the room, ended the call, etc. - your emotion will very likely decrease over time and after a while you have forgotten what upset you in the first place. Same within games: If you are having an big-boss-encounter, it makes sense the music reflects your situation of having to face a dangerous threat (unless you are very well equipped and skilled ;-)). If you then decide to run instead of to fight, it also makes sense the music reflects your decreasing sense of threat until you are way out of reach. Once the whole action scenario is over the music should again go back to accompanying the current game setting by means of an appropriate background mood.
No, you are not restricted by the psai® Theme Types. Here is why we came up with these: While using common tools on some of our first projects we quickly realized if you programm musical behaviour logic manually it is very likely that you go crazy especially if the project grows big: "If playing action_track_013 at intensity 85% and player leaves combat area, return to background theme cave_007, but not if the player has changed location in the meantime and found the magic staff, then play ...". So you see it's a matter of priorities and recurring rules the music has to follow - which are based on the principles of gameplay. The psai® Theme Types reflect these basic rules of musical behaviour and by using them you can free your mind from complicated logic issues but concentrate on making a great game. It's as simple as this: An Action Theme will always immediately interrupt a Basic Mood (background music), but not vice versa.
The name psai® was derived from its creators, Periscope Studio. It's an abbreviation of Periscope Studio Audio Intelligence. P.S. You should not mix it up with Portable Sanitation Association International.
Please make sure that..:
1. Your soundtrack has been built/exported to a location somewhere within the 'Assets/Resources/ ' folder of your Unity Project, like to "Assets/Resources/MySoundtrack". You can export either from the psai® Editor standalone application, or from the psai® Editor (Light Edition) in the 'Windows' menu within Unity.
2. In that directory mentioned above there needs to be a binary soundtrack file that holds all the playback configuration of your soundtrack, the default name is 'soundtrack.bytes'.
3. In your Scene there needs to be an instance of the 'Psai.prefab' that comes with the psai.unitypackage. Click its 'PsaiSoundtrackLoader' component and make sure the 'Path To Soundtrack Within Resources Folder' points to your soundtrack file. E.g. if your Project has been exported to "Assets/Resources/MySoundtrack/soundtrack.bytes", the path should hold "MySoundtrack/soundtrack". Use the slash '/' as the directory seperator on all platforms.
First check if the audio files can be found, which are referred to by the soundtrack.bytes file. To do so, make sure the Unity Editor is not running your Project (press Stop), then select the psai® object in the Hierarchy window and its PsaiCoreManager component. Make sure its LogLevel variable is set to 'errors'. Now run your Scene again and trigger a Theme by pressing its button. Now check the Console window for messages like 'Audio File not found'. If this is the case, most likely your Audio files have been deleted or moved to another directory, either already within your psai Project or later after exporting to Unity. The check that, open the psai® Editor (standalone), load the psai® Project and run the Project Audit command from the Project menu. If you get no errors, export to Unity again by clicking File > Build Soundtrack / Export to Unity.If you get errors "Audio File not found!" in the Project Audit, click the Segments marked red, select the 'Audio File' rider in the Segment Property Panel, and fix the relative path to the Audio File by clicking the "..." button.
Most likely the import settings of your audio files are not set up correctly within Unity. To check that, click one of the Audio Files in the Project window to have it displayed in the Inspector. There, among other settings the "3D" flag is checked by default, but for psai® it needs to be disabled. To do that quickly and easily, the psai.unitypackage comes with the "psai Multi Audio Object Editor" which can be accessed from the Project window by right-clicking on the parent folder that holds your soundtrack files. In the editor window make sure 'use psai settings' is checked and then just click the "Apply" button.
The psai® SDK will be available in Unity Asset Store in Q4 2014. If you are interested in getting an early access version, please contact us.
The native version of psai® is currently available for Windows only. Please contact us if you are interested in evaluating or licensing.
