Our History

history-left-image

Somatone Interactive, Inc. was co-founded in 2003 by fellow Berklee College of Music graduates Nick Thomas and Kane Minkus, whose shared passions for music and video games fueled their vision to create a top-quality, one-stop audio production shop. This innovative pair initially worked on feature films, national ad campaigns and AAA games, eventually concentrating their creative energies on the burgeoning casual games sector of the industry. They gained an early foothold in this rapidly growing arena to become a leading force among casual game audio & sound design studios, eventually branching out across all genres, styles and technical requirements.

Implementation

While great SFX, immersive music and stellar VO performances make up an important part of a great-sounding project, expert implementation and mixing of these assets are vital steps to make everything sound great. Our team has provided complete implementation support on games of all kinds and sizes. With high-level expertise in Unity, fmod, Wwise, and Unreal, Somatone sound designers oversee the entire audio pipeline, from content design to implementation, mixing, and testing.

Haptics Production

Somatone has partnered with Immersion Corporation to design and implement multi-sensory effects into Android-based mobile games and apps using Immersion’s haptic technology. By coupling Immersion’s sophisticated tactile effects with our bundled services of premium sound design, original music, voice production and audio implementation, we are bringing heightened immersification to the mobile arena.

We create customized original sound to set it apart from others in its class. Our talented sound designers have the experience and creativity to develop unique sound assets for each project, based upon upfront collaborative work with clients and ongoing project management.

Voice Production

We draw from a diverse portfolio of union and non-union talent with script-specific auditions, not pre-fab demos, to select voice actors who perfectly fit character roles. We regularly direct live VO sessions in our own recording studios and provide all-inclusive rates on talent and production—including casting, directing, recording, editing and mastering— making voice production as affordable as possible while adhering to high quality standards.
