ASTS Sound Design

We are ASTS Sound Design or โ€œA Score to Settle Sound Designโ€. Founded by James F Brown III, Grant Borland, and Jake Dijak we strive to create high quality sound effects to help composers, producers, and musicians take their music to the next level. Our name comes from the idea that sound design is often the final step to elevate a hybrid production – Itโ€™s that thing that often sets a song apart from others, and really pushes it over the edge. We want to help composers settle their scores with something unique.
