BIG News on Designing Sound: Merger with Filmsound Daily, New Tutorials, Sections and more!
Filmsound Daily is now merged with Designing Sound
I’m proud to announce that “Filmsound Daily” and “Designing Sound” are now the same site. Jake Riehle (owner of Filmsound Daily) and I have been working very hard on this, so now we’re so excited proclaim this new stage for Designing Sound.
Jake: I’m excited to jump aboard such a great and active sound site. I started Filmsounddaily.com intent on providing a frequently updated film sound blog with short but in-depth interviews all the while posting other related links as I found them. In the last year or so my posting had slowed to a crawl and the thought of ramping back up an acceptable level of activity on the site seemed daunting. I started reading designingsound.org a few months back and Miguel’s ability to publish a constant level of great sound content was what motivated approaching him with a proposal. If we combined our efforts, not only would I be able to rely on Miguel’s motivation to keep the site updated, by publishing all posts on one central site we could help our readers spend their sound blog time a little more efficiently. We both have some great ideas for the future and as stated above I am stoked that we’re joining forces.
Miguel: Filmsound Daily was one of my biggest influences when I started Designing Sound. I really enjoyed all the informative interviews and related articles Jake published there. I’ve learned so much from this project (Designing Sound) and made a lot of good friends. I believe this merger will be a great thing for all of us. By collaborating together we could reach new territories and imporve the site every day. I’m really excited about this new stage for Designing Sound.
If we want to grow up in the industry, if we want to see the directors, developers, artists giving more importance to sound on their projects, we need to collaborate between us and learn from each other. Sharing knowledge is the best way to improve our skills, learn more, keep abreast and help to make sound as important as the other fields. That’s the reason I run this blog.
- New “Exclusive Interviews” Section with more than 50 Interviews on sound for visual media, including films and videogames, with talks to sound designers, editors, mixers, composers, foley artists, and more!

UPDATE: The guy who had been working on the tutorials can’t do this series and unfortunately we had to cancel the series.
