FMOD History and story

I am a frequent FMOD Studio User and I got to the Question about the origin of FMOD and how the tool started back in the days.
What’s the story behind the name “FMOD” (Frequency Modulation or Modulator!?)
I think that would be a nice topic for the new FMOD Blog. Some FMOD history.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Hi ,
Some articles have asked about this , but the basic info is it is short for Firelight Module player.
FMOD 1.0 was originally a .mod / .s3m / .xm / .it module player and nothing more! (DOS / Gravis Ultrasound only)

Hi brett,
thanks for the quick answer!
Still, it would be nice to have a in-depth history lesson about FMOD and how the story went over all the years. Just as a suggestion for a blog. :smile:
