Sound is my passion. In order to make a good sound great, it must be mixed properly. And that's where my talent will benefit you. Hi, my name is Stephan, I am a sound engineer and I will take your good sound and make it excellent. Contact me here and I am happy to assist you with any of your sound needs.
I started my education when everything sound-related was still running on analogue. Back then, Neve Consoles and tape recorders were the latest technology and that's when I learned the fundamentals of sound engineering. Now that almost everything has moved into the digital era, I still draw from my early training when it comes to selection and composition. Over the years I had the fortune to work with and test out a lot of gear, both hardware and software. I also worked as a distributor of high end sound equipment, furnishing many sound studios with just the right gear. All this experience allowed me to get a deep understanding of how, when the right equipment is put together, good sound can be taken to next level- to excellent sound.
After careful research and meticulous testing, I found the best components that would eventually create the building blocks of my own sound studio. The Harrison Mixbus and the Metric Halo 3d DSP allow me to mix and master your sound just right. Precise acoustics and monitoring guide the way of where and when to increase warmth, add punch or enhance clarity.
What I said above about being passionate about sound is still true and grows more so through every experience.
So, my offer to you is to give you a free demo of your material.

"What a terrific experience, Stephan was patient and professional. He went above and beyond to help me with all my queries. Will call on Stephen again for any audio needs. I definitely recommend him :)
I have worked with Sounddesign Pro for close to twenty years now. I cannot recommend Sounddesign Pro enough!
Sounddesign Pro is extremely knowledgeable and talented, always striving for impeccability, very friendly and personable and, which was important to me, able to listen to what I desire and finding the perfect solution for it.
Whatever your need- outdoor concerts, studio music/audio recording, live streaming, equipment selection- Sounddesign Pro is there for you!
Sounddesign Pro truly is a Pro when it comes to sound!
Got Sounddesign Pro to mix a complete album for me with quite a lot of different style tracks. Stephan managed to get a red tread with the sound throughout the album without compromising the individual tracks original expression. It was easy to communicate and we kept on going till we both were happy. I love Stephans ability to create the warmth on vocals and his understanding of how to create a live feeling on studio recordings. Exactly what I was looking for. From old school rock tracks to modern pop and a complex orchestra track sounded great after the mixingwork done at Sounddesign Pro.
Great person, very patient in all of your requests about the mix and every tiny detail. The warmth he gave on our song was the key!!! We will work again for sure!!
