[Bullet] Original Music and Arrangements

 Highest quality music and arrangements tailor made to fit your product. C.M.C. has done both for a wide variety of products in an even wider variety of styles. From a simple introduction to a self-composing algorithmic script for complex interaction we've done it all and we're always looking for a new challenge.

[Bullet] Sound Effects and Voice Production

 Sound effects scripting, recording, processing and conversion. C.M.C. has an excellent suite of all-digital tools and the experience to use them. We'll find it and record and process it or we'll make it up from scratch. Then we'll compile full sound tracks for cinematics or change resolutions and file formats to suit your needs. We will even create music and sound effects that fit each other and your video or game action perfectly.

[Bullet] Interactive Audio Consulting for Computer Games and Multimedia

 We can take the audio on your product from concept to gold master. We will develop an audio specification; compile a sound list; help you choose the best hardware and software technologies; hire and record voice actors, composers, and sound designers (or we'll do that for you too if you like;) then we'll manage your audio team keeping them up to date, answering their questions, solving their problems, and monitoring their progress and quality so you can concentrate on other areas.
