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