The FMOD Ex Programmer's API and Designer are a world-leading library and toolkit for the creation and playback of interactive audio. FMOD products are widely used in the games industry and have gained a strong reputation for its ease of use, powerful software-mixed architecture and comprehensive cross-platform support.

FMOD supports more hardware platforms than any other audio system - including the latest 'next gen' consoles. Consider the cost savings of not having to change code across any platform - Save months of development time. FMOD is actively developed, with regular releases of new features.
