Testimonials

What customers think about us

  • SonicPool’s consistent commitment to quality, always going above and beyond the typical expectations both creatively and in client service, are the core reasons why they always remain our #1 choice for mixing and sound design.

    Rob Troy
    President, The Antfarm
  • SonicPool was an invaluable part of America’s Best Dance Crew.  They played a large role in devising the plan to integrate a full post audio mix into a show with a high-pressure 24-hour turnaround.  We look forward to working with them again and again.

    Simon Fuchs
    Post Production Supervisor
  • SonicPool is like the crack dealer of sound design and mixing.  When you’re mixing with these guys, they keep coming up with really great, creative ways to add impact and overall value of my projects via the sound.  They’ve hooked me in with all their awesomeness!

    Drew Hall
    Director - Sons of Liberty
  • I love mixing at SonicPool.  They have a passion for everything audio.  Film is a visual medium, so selling a movie over radio puts you at a disadvantage.  We try to overcome that by creating a vivid audio image.  SonicPool makes that happen with incredible talent and imagination.

    Seth Berkowitz
    Creative Director, Workshop Creative
  • The guys at SonicPool kick ass.  Their team continues to shape and redefine sound design for the horror genre.

    Austin Reading
    President, Liquid Theory
  • Our feature had a very difficult post production schedule.  On top of that, it had many visual effects and so many complex conform effects making it really difficult to make our deadline but SonicPool really came through for us.

    Karl Hirsch
    Post Production Supervisor - Blood of Redemption
  • For our DI the picture finishing team, actually had to create new frames using parts of other frames because we had some corrupted files.  They have an extensive group of technicians that can do basically every phase of post production that someone might need.

    Mike Brinker
    Producer - Bad Country
  • It was a great advantage to have a DI artist who was also deeply involved in conforming the picture.  SonicPool combines the artist’s eye with unparalleled technical know-how and was very accommodating to all of our editorial needs.  I hope this is the first of many collaborations with SonicPool Post Production.

    Danny Safire
    Feature Editor & Director
  • SonicPool’s staff are true artists and their caring and work ethic are hard to match. They were not only first rate in terms of enthusiasm, but equally first rate in execution. I look forward to working with SonicPool every opportunity I get.

    George Gallo
    Writer/Director
  • The SonicPool team are real pros when it comes to HD online and mixing.  Their services are always quick, efficient and affordable.  We can always rely on their consistent service and attention to our various projects.

    Jason Wulfsohn
    Commercial Producer
  • Every single project we have brought here, from the ones that last an hour to the ones that last weeks, has been treated with professionalism, care, and quality.

    Karl Hirsch
    Post Production Supervisor
  • The facilities are second to none and it allowed us to mix our sound while simultaneously doing color correct down the hall.  The staff has the technical know how along with the personal touch that is so necessary when working in independent film.

    Blayne Weaver
    Director
  • Editing at SonicPool will always be my first choice.  This company has reinvented the full service post-production facility.  I consider SonicPool crew among the best there is.  There’s no place like home.
