iXMF unveiled by Interactive Audio Special Interest Group
A preview draft of a new open interactive audio file format has been posted by the Interactive Audio Special Interest Group.
iXMF is the first open file format to be devised for interactive audio content. It combines MIDI and audio data with scripting logic that defines playback behaviours, encompassing a huge amount features of modern audio engine environments in a non-proprietary format. It is hoped that iXMF will enhance data exchange between authoring applications and let game audio engineers use the same tools as their TV and film brethren.
