Master the art of video game music with this month's new learning path

March 14, 2022
Music is one of the most powerful, and overlooked, tools for bringing atmosphere and emotion into your games. The right sounds can cue players on important elements of gameplay, and impact how they think/feel as they explore worlds and battle enemies. 

So get started using music to your advantage with this month’s free learning path!

Set the Tone with the Quartz Music System

The right sounds at the right time can make all the difference in your gameplay. In this learning path, you’ll construct background music playlists, implement musical one-shots, and control synchronized music layers. You’ll dip into techniques for musical transitions, tempo changes, and time signatures. And you’ll learn how to bring it all together to expand the story and raise the stakes. All you need to do is tune in.
That’s it for now. And as a reminder, we add new courses to the Unreal Online Learning portal every month. All of them free, and many related to in-demand skills that can get you work or advance your career across a growing number of industries.
