SoundEngine is an audio post production company based at McMahons Point in Sydney, Australia. It is owned and run by Geoff McGarvey whose passion is for audio post and original music from design to mix. The studio is a place to create, because that’s the real business in the studio, realising creative productions and giving clients what they need and expect.
At SoundEngine you can record voice overs, audio books and ADR, as well as mix television shows, TVC’s, corporate and pretty much anything audio.
With many years of experience in all manner of audio production, you can be sure of an excellent result.
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.
Pro Tools Ultimate is the main mixing software, along with a load of plugins for audio processing, a selection of great microphones and fantastic monitoring. Audio repair is forms a big section of the work and I have the latest tools from Izotope and others to get your audio sounding better and cleaner.
The studio can cater for three voice artists/actors comfortably. If you need help with voice casting or direction, I’m here to help.
The work encompasses a mix of long and short form work, including television series, documentary, corporate and some ADR for feature films. Short form work includes TV and radio commercials, TV promos and corporate productions.
Sound design is another aspect of work, often involving animation. There is an extensive sound effects library, or if needed, Foley can be performed and recorded.
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.
As for 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.
I also write in conjunction with two other musicians and together we have created a small production music library. It covers a number of uses and we’re adding to it all the time. One major benefit is in licensing. You deal directly with us which makes it much easier when it comes to selling your programme around the globe.
