The scripts on nvk.tools are entirely focused around the specific needs of game audio. They have been tested by game audio professionals around the world and have been used to ship dozens of titles. They are designed to be intuitive, efficient, and flexible enough to fit your workflow.
Every script on nvk.tools was created by Nick von Kaenel, a sound designer and audio director with over a decade of experience in game audio. This experience has given him a deep understanding of the needs of sound designers and other audio professionals in the game industry.
What began as a personal endeavor eventually grew into a free offering to the game audio community. The growing demand for specialized features and support led to the inception of nvk.tools. Since then, nvk.tools has grown steadily, with new scripts and features being added regularly.
The goal of nvk.tools is to help others in the game audio community by providing tools that make their lives easier. Through the use of these tools, sound designers can spend less time on tedious tasks and more time on the creative aspects of their work. The positive feedback from the community has been overwhelming and is what drives nvk.tools forward.
