Summary

While the audience will rarely notice good sound design, they will always notice when it's poor.

This is a challenge for some theatres, schools, community theatre and amateur productions with limited budgets, unable to hire sound designers.

Nothing can properly replace professionally created sound cues and/or soundscapes in a production. A fine production should not suffer with mediocre sound due to finances. GP PixelWorks will provide a professional sound design for your theatre production with our unique "E-Sound Design Service." [http://www.gppixelworks.co.uk/esoundDesign.html]
