Sound Design

Creating soundscapes and environments, placing actors and voice talent inside of these spaces, triggering the imagination to create its own images (radio movies – who needs TV?), or just reading the copy.

  • Voice Over record and edit.
  • Sound Design for radio, tv, film, web, corporate pieces
  • Over 130,000 sound effects, searchable through SoundMiner

Library Music

FirstCom, Killer Tracks, OmniMusic, MegaTrax

These are the stock music libraries we work with.

Why buy library music from Wheeler when it’s way cheaper elsewhere on the web?

  1. Choices – we have over 340,000 music tracks, tons of depth in choices of genre and mood.
  2. The composers get a better deal  – unlike cheaper alternatives, our libraries can afford to take care of their composers.  To us, this is not about the well-being of composers, as much as the quality of music from an artist who’s just not willing to give his/her work away for little or nothing.
  3. Deana will research your music preferences, sending you 10 or so mp3 links to listen to.  If you hear a track that’s “close but no cigar” then send her back with a refined set of specs.  This process can give you way more choices.  Plus, she’s really good at finding stock music – she’s got the Emmy to prove it.
  4. Our libraries have on-staff search specialists who help us locate a ‘hard-to-find’ tune for you.
  5. We have a multi-terabyte server here with drives provided by the libraries themselves – so we’ll probably have the track on-site as a Hi-Res wav file.
  6. Oh, and we can search all those drives during your session for more choices, using SoundMiner’s search engine, installed in both of our suites.
