Wow! What an incredible year for 344 Audio. From brand new studios to exciting new clients, 344 have had the most exciting year and have never been in a better position to take on 2022. In this article, we will reconcile the big milestone events that built the solid foundations for 344 to deliver their world-class service.
Firstly, we take you back to the beginning of the year when The Stables was still in its infancy. The pictures below speak for themselves, don't they? These rooms have gone under extensive renovations to get them to where they are today. Studios are not completely finished but are very close! Brunel is just awaiting a delivery of some custom build speakers and a projector so the team can begin to deliver 344's fantastic new educational courses. More on that later! As you can see, when Alex first moved into the building, there was a lot of work to do! Over the past year, these rooms have been fixed up, decorated and filled with brand new gear. With more plans to build more workstations early in 2022, 344 will be an absolute powerhouse in the audio-post industry.
Last year, the 344 Audio Team celebrated many achievements, but perhaps the most successful one was the SFX libraries distribution. The goal was simple: release as many high-quality products as possible for our customers. With well over 100 libraries released in 2021, it's fair to say that vendors have been inundated with quality libraries from 344. That won't mean that the releases will slow down though, the team of audio craftsmen will continue to design, record and synthesise brand new libraries for the world to enjoy.
The 344 Audio website has had a complete makeover, along with an entire rebrand. New everything. Kaine, one of our new team members, has worked tirelessly to create the website and help with the 2021 rebrand. From fresh colour schemes to new desktop logos, everything that you now see about 344 has been updated to enter the new year with a fresh perspective. Throughout the year, 344 has also seen a great expansion in the workforce behind its services. The team there is forever expanding to provide a range of audio services. One of these services that have been developed towards the end of 2021, was the educational courses.
The team have also put together some fantastic sonic branding for 344. You can see it here in their commercial showreels!
The team have all been developing a total of 4 courses which are set to roll out early in 2022. These courses include the 'Introduction to Audio', 'Synthesis Essentials', 'In-depth: Sound Design' and 'Audio Post Essentials'. The team have been extremely thorough when designing these courses to ensure that anyone who takes them on will be perfectly equipped with the skills and knowledge appropriate to the course. The Audio Post Essentials course will prep anyone to take on a huge variety of audio-post work. Check it out here: https://www.344audio.com/courses
The final achievement of this year is of course their clients. 344 Audio has been fortunate enough to work with some massive companies such as Netflix, Peloton and the BBC. 344 will be working with lots more clients in the new year and will be bringing some fantastic new sound design into new projects.
Reviews of the year:
"We worked with Alex at 344 for our Netflix drag documentary 'Be Here, be Queer' and has a fantastic experience. He did a fantastic mix and really elevated the piece with some fab audio design. It was really helpful to work via a direct remote link as well. We were really satisfied with how the documentary sound turned out. Would Recommend!" - Matthew Cullum (Netflix)
"Alex and the team at 344 saved My film! I could NOT have asked for better service than what I experienced while working with this team. Communication was ALWAYS top notch and timely, the dedication, patience, enthusiasm and professionalism is unmatched! Alex truly cares about each project he touches and his passion for delivering the highest quality project he can shines. I CANNOT wait to bring them on board for future projects! Thanks again Alex!"- Austin Kinser
"Working with Alex and the rest of the team at 344 Audio has been an easy and professional experience from start to finish. Being my first time having a sit-in session on a film, Alex and team worked with me patiently and were always on hand with advice to fulfil my vision. Absolutely will be working with them again!" - Oliver Blaire
A huge thank you to everyone that has supported us and we are very much looking forward to working will you all again in 2022!
