Hybrid Sound Design & Original Music

Who

Soundsmiths – A collective of people who make and repair audio with hardware, software, recording and instrument.

We like to think we are more than just an original music & sound design studio, sure we make a lot of noise but we also have very ambitious ideas. We think as film makers but from a sound and music perspective. We like to get involved as early as possible as this often helps to develop a project in new and exciting directions.

It’s our duty to try and push sonic boundaries and attempt to make things people have never heard before, even if we fail miserably sometimes. It’s this process that keeps us learning.

We want people to feel a certain way when listening to our work. We think current but we also think to the future. Our ideas may not always be possible but It’s our job to be bold and let our clients reign us in!

The people we like to work with all have this ambitious forward thinking mindset and we feel this creates the perfect conditions to make outstanding films that really stand the test of time.

How

With the ever increasing time and budget restraints in the online, television & film industries, we here at Soundsmiths have come up with a solution that fixes both problems. We operate completely online!

Working online has many advantages, it cuts out the need for travel allowing everyone to focus & manage their time more efficiently as well as cancelling out commercial studio hire which lets us offer better availability and more attractive rates.

With this in mind we are extremely responsive to email, telephone and face to face Skype calls.

All we need to get cracking is the following:

  • Brief
  • Essential assets depending on the nature of your project (Reference Film, Audio Files, OMF or AAF)
  • Any references
  • Broadcast mastering specifications

When

We try our best to fit every project in however the more notice you can give us the more chance we will be available. Due to the nature of the industry projects get rescheduled regularly so if you do have a last minute impossibly tight turn around do get in touch! (We secretly love them)

Sound Design

We like to be involved as early as possible as we can offer creative input to your scripts that you may not of thought of. We can use sounds to help drive a film. Some sounds are pleasing and some are hard to listen too but as long as they support your story and have an effect on your audience thats all that matters.

Sounds we like: Dynamic, Foley, Electronic, Organic, industrial, Signal, Velocity, Impact, Spinning, Glitchy, Water, Wind, Debris, Cartoon, Photorealistic.

Original Music

If you’re looking for a personal touch in the music department then original composition is the way to go. We pride our selves in our ability to blend genres and taylor music to make your film sound that bit more special.

Music we like: Ambient, Cinematic, Electronic, Acoustic, Drone, Intense, Mysterious, Relaxed, Uplifting, Piano, Atmospheric, Wonky, Unusual, Real World, Ethnic.

Sound Mix

A bad sound mix can turn a beautiful project in to a train wreck in an instant, luckily mixing audio is our specialty. We can quickly polish your sound track to the desired mastering specification so its ready for broadcast in your specific region.

Character Vocalisation

Bringing animated characters to life is no easy feat! Luckily with your direction, our incredibly talented voice artists and some clever tricks from our sound designers we can create a brand new totally original personality just for you. So if you have a photorealistic Snow Fox from planet Zoidberg that needs a voice, drop us a line.

Audio Repair

Often the best solution to repairing your audio is to re record it, unfortunately this is not often possible due to a number of factors. This is where we come in. We have spectral repair tools that can discard your unwanted noise and help make your audio a little more pleasing to the ear.
