Controller Speaker & Sound Design

Hi, all! I'm looking for your favorite experiences with a game controller speaker. What games stood out to you and why? For me, I think Rocket League makes good use of it w/ UI sounds, Shadows of Mordor is great overall, and the latest Infamous has some really cool literal uses of it (spray paint ca...

Pro Tools Pre-Roll Bug

Re: The Sound Design Behind "Where Are You Now"
