Project Preferences: The SomaTone Team is one of the most sought after audio developers in the games industry for original music, sfx, VO, localization, audio integration and mixing. We are known for teaming up with our clients to help concept and create the assets. With robust management and large asset management systems, our team is known for being reliable, creative, and professional until the very end (we are known for great attention to detail and sticking through the revision process until everything is done to our clients requests). \\r\\n\\r\\nWe enjoy working on AAA titles, console downloadable, handheld, and PC games the most. Keeping our skills sharp with a constant supply of PC, Downloadable & Handheld (DS, PSP, GBA and Mobile) games, we also love the AAA titles that we get to work on with large budgets, supporting live orchestra recordings (we contract the Berlin, Prague, or Budapest Orchestras) or on site sfx recordings (as we have recorded at Military bases on more than one occasion). We are skilled at integration on console and handheld systems (and are open to learning your system if necessary). We are also used to supplying audio to Console and PC downloadable groups that are dealing with limited bandwidth and budgets. Our team enjoys tackling each project and creating a palate that will both enhance the game and be memorable for the quality.

Ideal Client Size: We have no preference as to the size of the companies we work with. For larger groups we will often assist an internal team with additional asset creation, sound design, music scores, or Voice Over production. Small companies tend to ask us to cover all assets for the entire project including both art and audio.
