Creative Sound Design, LLC is an audio production company founded by Frank Bry in 1993 with digital sound sample offerings for Digital Sampling Keyboards. With the success of these libraries, the company expanded by offering digital sample CD-ROMs for the Emu Emulator IIIx, Emulator IV, synthesizer programming for Waldorf Electronics and Emu Systems, and custom sound effects design for video, film, radio and television. He then expanded into custom sound effects design and recording for leading sound effects CD developers.

Frank Bry Bio:

Creative Sound Design evolved from Frank Bry’s beginnings as a musician in rock bands, as a live sound engineer, and as owner of his own recording studio. Frank moved from Massachusetts to Seattle in 1989 and began recording sound effects for sound libraries and doing sound design for video and radio. He also continued to work as a recording and mixing engineer for record projects and to create digital sound sample offerings for digital sampling keyboards. He expanded into custom sound effects design and recording for leading sound effects CD library developers. While working for Starwave Corporation as its lead sound designer, Frank worked on his first game project, Castle Infinity. After leaving Starwave, he did his first independent game sound design for Cavedog’s Total Annihilation.
