soundfront is the company name of freelancing sound designer/engineer Titus Maderlechner.
for tight schedules, overlapping projects or additional skills I have access to a network of very talented specialists like composers, technicians or other sound designers.
I like to work on many different fields of sound work: recording, mixing, editing, sound design and working on art installations.
If the project requires I'm happy to bring in other skills and put my hands on composing, programming or designing and soldering some electronic circuits...
how do I work
every project has it's own challenges
the usual suspects are:
claim vs. budget vs. time
on (most) recent projects I found a balance that made the project turn out very well
many projects were partly or entirely produced in my own studio.
there is one control room with 5.1.4 Atmos monitoring for film and music projects and a separate 8-channel ambisonic loudspeaker array to simulate n-channel type loudspeaker configurations for projects that will be installed in other venues.
a recording room were high quality microphones (Neumann, Gefell, Sennheiser) feed either modern Metric Halo or vintage Neumann mic pres. (or even more vintage with a Nagra III - the equipment list can be found here
“I was in George Martin’s studio in Amsterdam and he was telling me, ‘They come in here and it takes them three days to do a bass line.’ Well I’m not from that era.”
what I can't do in my own studio I will do somewhere else...
“Wenn der Berg nicht zum Propheten kommt, dann muss der Prophet zum Berg gehen”
...sometimes directly at the location were the installation will be presented
