We can do this together. 

The Grove is ready and able to add voice to your vision.

Technical Sound Design

Game audio inhabits the intersection of the technical and the artistic. We leverage systems like dynamic music, adaptive reverb, sound propagation, and contextual dialogue to help bring your worlds to life. 

Audio Direction

From concept to release, we will craft a soundscape that fits your creative vision. We work closely with creative directors and artists to ensure synergy between between sight and sound. 

Recording

The greatest source of sound is life itself. We explore our world, recording original material to supplement an existing database of terabytes' worth of recordings, pursuing a unique voice for every project we undertake.

Integration

A poorly-implemented sound is nothing but noise. Whether using proprietary tools, leading game engines (Unity, Unreal), or Middleware (Wwise, FMOD, Sectr), we will ensure your audio not only sounds right, but works right, too.

Consulting

We know games, and what makes them sing. You need an extra set of ears on your product of passion. Let us in to the world you've created, and we'll give you the guidance you need to make sure it strikes a chord. 

 

Mixing

Everything in its right place. Once our sounds inhabit your world, we'll make sure each of their voices rings loud and clear. Mixing, mastering, limiting - we take care that our sounds play together nicely.
