Create convincing soundscapes for your next AV project

If you're working in the creative realm, you're likely well aware of how important a role sound plays in any multimedia project.

Less obvious but just as vital are sound effects and consequently, the sound design of a production.

Music, dialogue/voice, and sound effects together make up the 'soundscape', the aural equivalent to a landscape or the place where the story takes place, the space surrounding the story. If you picture a movie scene or a video game scene, or even just a dream, your mind simultaneously and automatically pictures, or rather hears, the sounds that belong to that scene.
