The Studio and Equipment

Located in the mountains of North Idaho is our comfortable digital recording and sound design studio. After the sound effects are recorded on location and carefully cataloged, they are meticulously edited for inclusion in our massive High Definition sound effects libraries. Only the finest takes are kept and mastered. Now the magic begins… each sound is creatively sculpted to create exceptional material for the “Ultimate HD Sound Effects Libraries” and “SoundBox HD Pro Collections“.
