How can something this familiar be so much better?”

This is the tool I’ve been looking for my entire career. Audio Design Desk lets me focus on creating sounds and makes the pain and chore of sound editing disappear. The team has come up with a groundbreaking product... I love its smooth integration with Pro Tools, and I’m using it on all of my projects."

Before we started using Audio Design Desk, it took 4 days to complete the sound for one animation. We can now do that work in under 3 hours."

Our artists work confidently and efficiently with this amazing software. Definitely a tool that will aid your productions as it has helped ours."

Uriel Botello

Creative Director, Boxel Studio​

Working in the field of fine art, I’m a one man band... There’s no production team, no editorial team, no sound design team. It’s just me in the studio. But I have a secret weapon. ADD adds so much power and efficiency to my workflow that I’m able to produce rich, professional soundscapes on my own with minimal effort. The application streamlines the monotonous task of populating footsteps and foley elements by allowing real-time performance based insertion, then offers customizable sync and replace tools designed from the ground up to simplify the process. I honestly don’t know how I’d get by without ADD."

Audio Design Desk is in a class by itself… Whether for social media videos, independent feature films, or anything in-between, Audio Design Desk makes it fast, easy, and fun to build an impressive soundtrack even the most discerning viewer would love hearing."

By the time experienced editors had completed 10 seconds of media synchronisation with the rival DAW, ADD had tackled two minutes’ worth... The pro-level sound designers who have already sampled the delights of ADD felt threatened by its capabilities at first, with some suggesting that it could put them out of work. But given time and direction, they found that the software opened up their creative abilities like never before. If you’re working on personal projects and looking for a DAW dedicated to audio-to-visual synchronisation, it doesn’t get any better than this."

It creates sound environments faster and easier than anything I’ve ever seen. Its ability to replace sounds with similar sounds without messing up the timing is unique and stunning... If you love high-speed shortcuts to achieve creative results, this program is a match made in heaven."

If you’re a content creator, this app could most definitely fit in the ‘indispensable’ category. You can add Hollywood blockbuster style foley with astonishing speed. And you can settle into an ‘audio for video’ workflow that is efficient and powerful. I can’t see going back to a standard DAW to accomplish these audio for video tasks - it would feel like the dark ages."
