Sound Design
Sound design and composition for media and theatre, post production mixing

Original Music

Straight comping, or something more creative. Your call.

We may – or may not be – suitable as a mastering solution for your project. We are wholly digital, and we only master for CD/Digital. We’ll be happy to recommend and advise on other mastering houses if your project doesn’t easily fit

Audio restoration
We clean up audio – improve on location audio, reduce background noise, housework, nips’n’tucks

Vocal Improvement
We can correct – or radically alter – pitching, timing in your vocal track, whilst maintaining a natural delivery. Or we can make you sound like Cher.
