Game Audio Design

I am currently offering a variety of freelance sound design services à la carte, as well as short-run SFX packages for game developers both big and small!


Before I can produce sound for your project, I need to gain insight into various factors that could affect the design process. This can be accomplished by:

  • Liaison with decisive authority, audio lead, or point of contact
  • Reviewing media that could serve as inspiration
  • Competitor analysis (style, mood, creativity, levels)
  • Documentation of requirements and developing a plan of action

Sound Design

After the audio vision for your project has been solidified, I can begin to design custom audio from:

  • Sound effects libraries
  • Original studio/field recordings
  • Software synthesis
  • Foley

Audio Implementation

Once sounds have been approved they can be integrated into the game, by the way of various audio authoring tools. I have experience with, but I am not limited to, the following methods:

  • Middleware audio systems (Wwise, FMOD)
  • Unreal audio system (Sound Cue, Kismet, Matinee)
  • Script editorial (UnrealScript, TorqueScript, Lua, etc.)


After all sounds have been integrated into game they will be ready for final mixdowns. There may be numerous mixes required for game modes, scenes, and listening profiles. This process might consist of:

  • Audio level balancing
  • Emitter radius and/or panning adjustments
  • Applying filters and effects

Miscellaneous services
