Tech for Nerds

This is not your average sound library. This is content produced for serious creators, using cutting-edge technology and our innovative SFv4 Production Pipeline.

Scene Analysis

A protocol for capturing, and documenting a location, to extract elements, model scenes, analyze sound behavior and synthesize new elements. All creative information and extra elements to achieve consistent aesthetics. Learn More >>

FocusBlur™​

FocusBlur™ is a delicate psychoacoustic process that defocuses the signal of directional sources in soundscape or music material, producing a difficult to localize result with a subtle in-front focus, perfect for scene ambience, music, and non-diegetic material. Learn More >>

PureSource™​

Get the purest sounds from any source. Free from reverberation, unwanted distortions, and irrelevant elements. Achieve perfect sound source localization and reverb integration for full immersion. Learn More >>

Refined Content​

Optimized trimming, seamless looping, and detailed fading. All those results in oneshots that perfectly sync with visuals, and loops that cycle seamlessly in any playback scenario.​ What you get is content that just sounds great and cuts through the mix.​ Learn More >>

AuthorNorm™​

A perceived loudness normalization pipeline that mimics nature, specialized for audio assets after the pre-production and before the production stage, perfect for media authoring. Learn More >>
