I WORK WITH CREATIVE PEOPLE

I’m Geoff McGarvey and I own SoundEngine.

My passions are audio post and music from design to mix and with my  clients we create, because that’s the real business in the studio, realising creative productions.

And it starts right here as sound, that stuff that gets into your head, even when you’re not looking at a picture.

This is the about page so here’s a brief history. I trained at the ABC in all areas of production and became a cameraman working predominantly at the old Gore Hill studios. I had a great time there and worked on shows including dramas, sitcoms, music, children’s, plus live productions such as operas, symphonies and sports. The ABC did offer a diverse menu!

I left the ABC to start my own audio post studio, which has led me to working with many television networks and a multitude of production companies. My work runs from mixing TV series, documentaries, TVCs, corporate communications, radio ads and recording hundreds of audio books. I also compose music here and there for television shows.

I have benefited from the knowledge, experience and high production values of the people I have had the good fortune to work with over the years.

In my building are three other businesses, Take 2 Creative Audio, Mark Tanner Sound (both the same business as me, we back each other up when needed) and The Mustard Factory which handles editing and After Effects with four edit suites.

A PLACE TO CREATE

The studio is spacious and comfortable and more to the point, it was professionally designed, tuned and sound proofed. Its a place to work without distraction and focus on the job at hand.

I’m running Pro Tools Ultimate, a load of various plugins for audio processing, a selection of great microphones and fantastic monitoring. Audio repair is forms a big section of my work and I have the latest tools from Izotope and others to get your audio sounding better.

The studio can cater for three voice artists/actors comfortably. If you need help with voice casting or direction, I’m happy to help out.

The work I do encompasses a mix of long and short form work, including television series, documentary, corporate and some ADR for feature films. I also record and mix a lot of TV and radio commercials and TV promos.

Sound design is another aspect of work often involving animation. I have an extensive sound effects library, plus I can foley to order.

Audio books have also been a big part of my work and I have recorded and produced hundreds of titles. This has led me to work with some fantastic actors.

Music, over the years I have written and co-written songs, TV themes, corporate themes, incidental music and weird, SFX/even I’m not sure/avant garde… stuff.

The studio uses some of the best music plugins for both ‘real’ and synth sounds. As well as that, I have always used top notch session musicians who add ‘the magic factor’ to any work.
