OpenAL vs FMOD


can anyone tell me what Sound System should I use for my game:

OpenAL or FMOD?

Which has the best features,sound etc?

Which is better supported by JME?

Which sounds better?

What do you prefer/use?


Yes that's right, if your product is not intended to make any money, and is not charged for in any way, then you may use FMOD in it for FREE!

well fmod isnt free anymore, so if you dont want to shell out a couple grand for license (commercial on i mean) then openal starts to look mighty sweet.

fmod skills can transfer to platforms like xbox and what not, but openal is…uh…free

anyway just my two cents

Just updated to the latest version of FMODex too:-)

not me…jerome…just pointing the way:-)
