About Us

GENIUSOUND is made up of a small group of professional composers, sound designers, and performers. With over 25 years of combined experience, we are proud to deliver consistently high quality products to our clients which include:

  • Royalty-Free Production Music
  • Source Material for Sound Designers
  • ASMR Audio & Video
  • VST Soundbanks & Patches
  • Film Music & Trailers
  • Comprehensive Engraving & Publishing Services
  • On-Site Songwriting & Composition Consulting

Our production music is ready-to-use “out of the box” and suited for a wide variety of mediums including: television, radio, short films, online media, on-hold music, corporate presentations, newscast music, sonic branding, trailers, and background music.

Behind the Sound

All of our products are professionally recorded, sampled, and mixed using high-end outboard equipment. We do not perform pre-mastering or use severe processing on any of our products – doing so would simply burden our customers by limiting functionality and flexibility with static material. We always use as little processing as is really necessary to provide professional ready-to-use products. This includes “broad stroke” blending decisions, subtle compression, and tasteful (conservative) subjective or surgical equalization for clarity and presence. We use conservative amounts of compression, normalization, and careful EQ so all of our media translates appropriately at the highest quality sound: whether it’s played back on laptop and headphones, or audiophile home theater. You won’t find heavy limiting anywhere at GENIUSOUND.

Since much of our music lends itself for use in television and film, we pay particular attention to the low-mid and mid-range frequencies (i.e. a full orchestral palette) in order to avoid any possible conflicts which may arise for those who use our products for dub and post-production. We strive to accomplish a perfect balance for those who are matching our music to dialogue as well as those who are using our music for background audio.

While we do not consider our work to be flashy or over-the-top, that is not to say our products lack energy, excitement, or vitality. We offer music that compliments your productions in such a way where it encourages your audience to really listen, to think, and to truly feel something about your project. That is what makes a media production in our books. Here at GENIUSOUND we take great pride in our work. Whether you want to add some music and sound effects to your podcast / radio drama to excite and engage your audience – or perhaps you are recording an audio book – or releasing a spoken word / poetry production and are considering the use of personalized background music to provide the finishing touches: we’ve got you covered.

Are you a music supervisor?

If you are a music supervisor or a sound editor then we know that your time is invaluable. You simply cannot afford to waste time auditioning track after track after track, all just to find the perfect sound for your project. Selecting music for movies, television, games, or web media can be a very challenging and demanding task – scratch that, it can be a downright emotionally exhausting task a lot of the time! Why make things more difficult than they have to be? Let us make the work easier for you.

You deserve your own theme song!

Admit it: you’ve always wanted your own theme song, haven’t you?

At GENIUSOUND, we offer you the opportunity to create your own theme song, catchy jingle, custom sound FX, or sound logo for your company! Click here to hear some of our branding examples!

Sonic Branding is the use of sound to reinforce brand identity. Branding allows you to convey memorable messages to a targeted group of consumers and it takes full advantage of the powerful memory sense of hearing sounds. There are many opportunities for sound branding, not only for business, but also for personal projects. Consider:

  • Is a loved one getting married soon?
  • Are you in the process of creating a family photo slideshow full of memories for a reunion or special event?
  • We compose custom music for all occasions, and these compositions are made just for you and your loved ones. Don’t settle for using a popular gimmicky song for your special production, let us impart a personalized touch for your memories: you pick the instruments, style, and length – and we deliver the music. Please contact us for more information.

GENIUSOUND did a great job with the music for our wedding. The music literally paints a picture in your mind of EXACTLY what I requested. Their talent and creativity is truly a gift from God. It’s a blessing to have had this music featured in our wedding. Thank you!

These guys are awesome!!! They hooked me up with some sick patches for my MaxMSP project. I recently had my new electroacoustic composition performed at the university and I couldn’t have done it without GENIUSOUND. The audience loved the production!

Where would I be without GENIUSOUND? Well, I wouldn’t have been able to create my senior thesis film! I was desperately searching for some abstract and really “out there” sounding tracks for my scenes – the PRETERNATURAL GALAXIES library was exactly what I needed!
