A lot of video producers leave sound as an afterthought.  Not here. We take sound very seriously at WaveGuide Studios. To find out just how seriously, take a listen to some of our audio work, both standing on its own and working together with video. 


 

Radio

Radio is still a terrific medium – for the right product/client/service.  The goal for radio is to stand out from the clutter to grab your prospect’s attention, hold that attention and be memorable, since a call to action is usually subject to delay.  We’ve helped clients do those things, and do them well.

Original Scores

There’s a lot of stock music out there – and sometimes we use it.  But there’s nothing like original music to set your video and your brand apart, and a score can precisely match the tone, edits and visuals of your project in ways that no stock track can.  At the same time, your score can’t just be unique.  It has to be great.  And “great” is our specialty.

Sound Design

Sound can amplify - pardon the pun - the effect of any video project.  And unlike most production companies, we have complete sound design, foleys, and mix-to-picture services right here in our studio. Have a look - and a listen - to some of the samples below.

Four Episodes from Nineteen Eighty-Four

Client: Techne Films Limited

 

WaveGuide Studios provided complete picture and sound restoration for the Blu-ray re-release of Techne Films' award-winning "Four Episodes from 1984".  The original answer print was re-transferred to 2K digital; registration jitter, dust, and scratches were removed; and the picture was re-timed.  The original mono mix was completely scrapped and an all-new 96kHz stereo mix was created, cleaning up dialog and sound effects from the original field tapes, recording additional foleys and sound effects, and creating an all-new, immersive sound design.

 

 

Music Recording

Todd Watson, our in-house audio producer/engineer, got his start in the music business, recording big-name acts and becoming the go-to engineer at many southeastern recording studios.  When we built him a home here at WaveGuide, we made sure that his studio was album-ready. And he’s recorded albums in plenty for artists like Michael Stipe, Heavy D, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Canibus, Sophia Darcel and many more.
