Sterling Sound is an award winning sound design, television, radio and music composition / production facility based in the heart of the greater Johannesburg area in Gauteng, South Africa.
Our flagship studio boasts a history of consistently producing award-winning work, taking top honours at Cannes, D&AD (Yellow Pencil in 2016 & 2012), the Loeries, the CLIO Awards, Promax the LIAs and others. Our sound design craft awards are a particular source of pride, as we believe they reflect the true abilities of an audio post-production studio.
We are passionate about creatively exploring the possibilities of all things audio-related, finding ways to tackle and achieve the seemingly impossible. As much as our focus is on producing excellent audio for our clients, our mission is also to create a warm and welcoming creative environment, whether it be with our hard-working cappuccino machine, legendary lunches, our sun-soaked outdoor café area or the sweet treats that keep sessions alive.
In March 2015, we opened an independent satellite studio within the Upstairs Ludus post-production facility located in Hurlingham Office Park, allowing us to facilitate audio sessions in the same physical space as grading, editing and VFX for maximum efficiency. This studio also offers radio production services and Source Connect link-ups for remote recordings.
For domestic and international remote recording sessions, we are able to link up to other studios via ISDN, Source Connect or Skype.
Our equipment includes the following:
Three state-of-the-art audio suites (Pro Tools)
Remote audio editing Pro Tools system (for location voice and foley recording)
We also offer the following production services:
Voice artiste recommendations and bookings
Library music licensing
Material delivery to stations
Translations and language supervisors (outsourced)
