Dedicated Scale Model Sound Design:
We do not sell collections of recordings of real places. We don't sell full scale recordings. We DO sell dedicated scale sound models! Each CD scene is hand made, meticulously scratch built from hundreds of individual sounds. Each little sound is tweaked mercilessly in the digital audio workstation until it literally 'leaps out' at scale volume levels, but the real magic is in the proprietary Scale Magic imaging we scratch build 'around' every single one of our Scale Magic scenes!
The tiny reflections around it are what make a prototype sound appear real, but 'tiny reflections' can disappear below the threshold of human hearing at quieter, scale volume levels. To compensate sound for scale playback, we scratch build and then caricature a dedicated 'ambient scene image' around all of the little sounds in that scene. That's the magic part of Scale Magic sound, and what makes our soundtracks... scale models!
It's also what makes our scenes sound like 'someplace'...
We bring hundreds of individual sounds into each scene soundtrack, for the first time... but they have never been a 'place' before. They need to sound like they belong together in the same scene, so we scratch build a final caricatured overall image around every built up scene. This final caricature gives the scene a life of its own, its own sense of place, and an uncanny ability to 'couple up' to full scale ears at scale volume. This really works! And it is engineered to work best at tiny, scale volume levels... and in your model railroad layout!
Scale Magic Sound is guaranteed to quietly sound huge...
