Sound Design Services at Bad Racket Studios in Cleveland

Proper sound design is fundamental to a successful and engaging end result. It sets the energy for the final result and can improve the impact of the production and help keep audiences engaged. By adding clear dialog and effects, we can sculpt the sound and sequence music, adding different elements and manipulating existing content to improve the sound for picture.

Sound Design is the voice over recording,dialog and other audio elements like samples and effects that set the soundstage for TV, Film, Radio-play, or commercial production. We offer full production in house whether you need a simple jingle, or a full length feature film with effects, music, and dialog. We can help you acquire licensing for audio elements within your script, as well as for live performance and reproduction. Here at Bad Racket we do sound design and production for television, web videos, corporate training videos, documentaries, full length feature films and more.

Volume Adjustment

Each track is carefully placed with volume and panning within the sound stage. Various psychoacoustic effects for placement and clarity. We manipulate the audio for maximum understandability. Nobody should be wondering: “What was that?” because when you’re watching a video or movie, nobody likes to hit rewind to go back just to follow along. A great audio experience can make or break your experience, and be the difference between ” Bad B-Movie Sound” to “Professional Production.

Dynamics and Volume Control

Dynamics of dialog can go up and down. Shouts and yelling can be lack luster without the volume and dynamics of the production are properly adjusted. Dynamics can be an important and exciting enhancement. Grabbing listeners during dramatic sections, or making a calming soothing feeling from gentle music or sonic textures.

Reverb, Ambience, and Effects

R0om tone and ambience can be an important part of creating a realistic environment for actors dialog within the space. Sometimes the room is sounding funky. Now-days, new de-reverb algorithms can make your recordings sound dryer if room comb-filtering has rendered your audio less than perfect. Sometimes just a little EQ can make all the difference.
