We are an interdisciplinary team of experts in interactive sound design and audio software development. We share a passion for everything sound.


Together we Create
the Sound of The Future


What does a brand sound like? And which brand values should a specific sound convey? When we design a product’s sound, we always look for creative answers to these questions. From a brand specific sound composition, we carefully extract what the sound should communicate to the listener. We specialize in interactive sounds that react to users and their surroundings. That way the message isn't simply heard, but truly comes to life.

We create interactive sound solutions for a variety of products and brands in the fields of automotive and consumer electronics. This includes acoustic transformation of brand values into sound, implementation of software for DSPs and control units as well as hardware integration and fine tuning of physical prototypes. Using an iterative design process, we are able to guide our clients from the initial idea all the way to the finished product.


Where are the technological boundaries for what is musically possible? And how can we push them? When we develop tools for the creation of sound and music, we carefully listen to everyone involved. Our goal is to transform an acoustic or musical idea into an inspiring product through a collaborative creative effort. No matter how ambitious, we’ll make your vision come to life.

We focus on the development of algorithms, plug-ins and applications for the analysis, processing and synthesis of real-time audio signals. Based on abstract concepts, we develop tailor-made solutions ranging from algorithmic prototypes and DSP implementations to complete applications for our clients. A perfect sound and efficient algorithms are as important to us as the quality of the development process.




Management, Software Development, Signal Processing

“The boundaries between acoustics, design and software are about to vanish. Technological progress enables us to create entirely new solutions. This change has only just begun, and the years ahead will be exciting.”


Design Strategy, Sound Design, Interaction Design

“I‘m fascinated by the influence that sounds have on us – in particular when they are able to react and adapt, when we allow them to communicate with us and thus establish a more meaningful and powerful connection between us and the technology we use.”


Signal Processing, Software Development, Electronics

“The link between physical-technological principles and music has fascinated me for a long time. Software for musical artists develops at an astounding pace, and I greatly enjoy finding new approaches to these technological challenges.”


Interactive Sound Design, Sound Synthesis, Audio & Music Production

"The world is revealed to us every day in various sounds and noises. We filter this input and derive from it a universal language whose semantics are understood worldwide. Embedded in rhythmically organized structures instead, these sounds become music. This area of tension between communication and art is a fascinating terrain open for wonderful experiments."


Interactive Sound Design, Software Prototyping, UI/UX Design

"To shape the perceptible world of sounds in the future is the most exiting challenge for me. On a small scale, this means to develop sounds that explain and accompany the functionality of an object and positively influence the user. On a large scale, this may redefine the sound of entire cities. This perspective drives me to find the perfect sound every day."


Audio Plugin Development, Circuit Simulation, Signal Processing

"Sounds can be easily generated and manipulated using software. The creative challenge for me is to design complex systems, from the graphical interface down to the audio algorithm in such a way, that the result is not only functional but also connects to the user emotionally."


Interactive Sound Design, Audio Branding, Music Production

"The process of sharing visions and ideas, developing them and eventually making them into reality is inspiring to me: What arises as thought can be explained and spread by language and finally manifested as a perceptible and emotional experience. The challenge of finding the right sonic expression of an abstract concept is what truly excites me."


Interactive Sound Design, DSP Algorithms, Creative Coding

"I like making things. Therefore Impulse Audio Lab and I are a perfect fit."


Business Administration

"My strong affinity towards sound and sound design, especially in the automotive field, makes my work at IAL exciting and interesting every day. As a business administrator in a highly specialized creative team, I am responsible for all back-office processes."


Interactive Sound Design, AVAS Development, Audio Measurements

Sound is everywhere and affects our lives at all times. Technological progress enables us to actively shape the soundscapes of the future. My work allows me to combine my passion for everything that sounds with my fascination for novel mobility.


Signal Processing, Machine Learning, Audio Plugin Development

"My fascination for audio technology started by exploring the rich world of analog circuits. However, the digital era has just begun and its methods give us the freedom to create new innovative ways to approach audio signals. My goal is to combine recent advances in Signal Processing and Machine Learning to define the sound of tomorrow."


International Business Development, Innovation Management

"Like music, sound can improve human daily life - by adding positive emotions, better usability and higher security. Sound follows function, follows customer needs."


Machine Learning, Signal Processing, Algorithm Design and Development

"Sound and Music are intrinsically built with patterns and complex structures. My passion is revealing and understanding this information through audio processing and new artificial intelligence technologies. A good balance between traditional methods and machine learning is the way to go to build new state-of-the-art solutions for the market."



Automotive Sound Design

Using classical methods and in-house developed tools, we have been creating synthetic engine sounds for internal combustion engines and electric motors as well as innovative acoustic information and warning sounds for years. Our sound design forms an integral part of the driving experience and safety in e-mobility and automated driving.

Product Sound Design

We accompany our clients in an iterative design process – from the acoustic realization of brand values to interactive product sound. With many years of experience, our own design processes, and the latest in audio and measurement technology, we provide comprehensive solutions all the way up to the implementation and fine tuning at the product level.

Sound Design-Tool Development

We develop interactive sound design tools that seamlessly integrate into the existing design processes of our clients. In doing so, we place great emphasis on an intuitive graphical user interface that enables the designers using the tools to focus on what is essential: the creation of sound.

Audio Signal Processing

From classic PC and DSP platforms to highly integrated mobile devices and micro-controllers – we develop and implement customized and optimized algorithms for digital audio signal processing in real-time. Our focus lies on both the sound experience and the efficient use of hardware resources.

Software Development

Whether as mobile app for iOS and Android, audio plugin or cross-platform music application – we develop suitable applications for DSP algorithms. Intuitive and elegant user interaction is as important to us as the documentation and quality assurance of the development process.

Hardware Prototyping

Geared towards the specific needs of our clients, we compile selected hardware components from DSP platforms to speakers and make them work together flawlessly. We also provide individual solutions by drafting and producing single components using rapid prototyping.

Measurements and Recordings

Even if it is the ear that in the end decides subjectively on a sound – we have the technology and experience to take objective measurements. This includes classical acoustic measurements such as impulse response analysis as well as specific measurements and recordings in the field of automotive engineering.

Consultancy and Procurement

We help our clients choose the right audio components or acoustic measurement technology for their work place by providing competent consultancy and procurement advice. We also offer objective measurements or listening tests in order to find the ideal device for the intended use.
