Sound Design

My sound design services includes Mono, Stereo and 3D Audio creation, recording, editing, mixing and mastering of sonic elements, soundscapes and music for audiovisual or audio-only media. I have a focus on sound design productions of organic sounds, natural atmos and virtual acoustic environments as well as World Fusion, New-age music and Ambient soundtrack.
To compose and record a film score or background music, I use a variety of different electric, traditional folk and orchestral instruments, but also synthesizers. All tracks are edited with professional modern audio tools. Music, foley, SFX and atmos will be produced and optimised to support presentations, stories and scenes in a radio drama, audiobook, film, TV drama, animation, game, website, theatre play or any other artistic, promotional, documentary or educational multimedia production.

Binaural 3D audio is played from a two-channel audio file (WAV, MP3, ...) or CD-audio and gives the listener an immersive sound experience. Binaural 3D Audio simulates the human spatial hearing via every kind of stereo headphones (no special models are required). When listening to stereo audio with headphones, the perception of all sources of sounds is located inside of the head between the left and right ear. With binaural 3D Audio the sound appears outside of the head and can be anywhere within a full 360° three-dimensional sphere. Voices, instruments and sounds can be positioned around the listener - in front of, behind, right, left and even below or above and everywhere in between - and can be placed in a virtual acoustic environment such as rooms and halls, studio and outdoor ambiences.

Binaural 3D audio sounds amazing in audiobook, radio play, shortfilm or documentary video productions and can not only improve the spatial, acoustic presentation of dialogues, atmos, sounds, foley and music, but also creates a much more emotional listening experience. Audiovisual presentations, sound installations, and interactive AR / VR projects use multi-channel immersive audio formats, such as Ambisonics, where multiple mono or stereo sound sources are played through extensive speaker and soundbar systems (more than Surround Sound). In games, 360° videos and Virtual Reality applications, sounds for interaction can be integrated in this way.

Immersive 3D audio editing, mixing and mastering services includes panning, positioning and automated movements as well as level and fades adjustments, cuts, restoration and noise reduction, equalizer sound editing, reverb and creation of virtual acoustic environments, delay, effects and sound design manipulations, spectral shaping, dynamic compression, vintage sound coloring, saturation and limiting of mono, stereo, multichannel or binaural 3D audio tracks, stems und mixes. Delivery of various digital audio formats (WAV, AIFF, MP3, AAC, FLAC, OGG) and DDP premaster for CD duplication.

Audio Editing, Mixing and Mastering for a 3D audio production can be done from single mono or stereo tracks or stems (multiple tracks as stereo file). The source material should be in 16-24 bit resolution as a WAV or AIFF audio file. When mixing audio in 3D it is important to keep in mind the genre typical sound and volume settings as with stereo mixes. In addition, with 3D Audio, the enormously expanded spatiality and the associated possibilities of positioning individual sounds can generate completely new impressions and listening experiences that not only allow creative experimentation but also a virtual simulation of a natural sounding of instruments, voices and sounds, and thus to the listener convey realistic acoustic impressions of a scenery and environment. These can be a mixed soundtrack, dialogue or sounds for moving images, audiobook or radio play, but also a mix of pure music. The sound and dynamics processing and the positioning of the individual sounds are completely different than with typical stereo mixes. If you are interested, I would like it to develop creative ideas for a contemporary immersive 3D audio sound mix of your existing and future audio and music productions.
