Boost Your Brand by Creating an Audio Logo

Tap into the niche market of creating Audio Logos. This course from composer/sound designer Gary Hiebner will guide you through creating your own audio logo within your respective DAWs (whether you use Logic, Studio One, Ableton, FL Studio or another DAW, you'll be able to follow along). We will cover creating your own sound effects, such as hits and whooshes and then move onto how to create tonal and sequencer patterns to build up memorable chords and melodies in your logo. And finally we'll look at how to mix, master, and export out the audio and embed it in the video logo to complete your impactful audio logo for brand recognition.

  • Importing Video into your DAW
  • Creating Markers for important areas in the Video

  • Using Reversed sounds for Builds
  • Embellishing your logo with Sparkle sounds
