We clarify and enhance audio to help win legal cases, private investigations, and business deals. Get expert forensic audio analysis, fully documented results, with friendly service, fast turnarounds, and at reasonable rates.
Do you want to enhance or preserve your audio recordings? Our affordable sound restoration service clean and enhance live concert recordings, repair family memories, clarify surveillance footage, or sweeten already-clean music recordings.
Vocal intelligibility can make or break a legal or business case. Advanced spectral analysis and the latest algorithmic noise reduction, combined with years of sound restoration experience, achieve clarity that makes most of my clients simply say "wow."
Noise focus can identify any non-vocal sounds you deem to be important in a recording. These include writing, paper rustling, background location identifiers, potential edits, pauses, and equipment malfunction, and any other sounds of interest.
We examine your audio with a critical metadata analysis. You can request a report that includes telling details of your recording such as date and time, length, demographics, recorder make/model, serial number, device settings, and user data such as investigator or case number.
Audio is mission-critical to your work so we guarantee 100% no-compromise satisfaction. We are always happy to oblige when a client wants to try to achieve more clarity around specific audio events.

John Giuca's case
"Prosecuting Attorney Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi claimed, 'No notes were taken' therefore there was nothing to turn over to the defense. Mark's audio forensics mastery enhanced the sound recording of the deposition which clearly exposed scribbling sounds, pen drops, and page turning! The PA has since been accused of hiding favorable evidence from the defendant and false representations and nondisclosure of evidence. My son and I are forever grateful for Mark's work!" -Doreen Giuliano
Director & Photojournalist
Working with Mark is awesome. He has a deep knowledge of sound and a ton of experience. He's an excellent listener and delivered exactly what I asked for. I've worked with him on multiple projects including a commercial, on which he went above and beyond to make sure I got what I needed and all before deadline. I can't recommend Mark enough!

Mark helped make my burgeoning video production practice into a polished reality. I learned approaches to working with image and sound that I still use in my work today.

Mark always delivered. Even when that meant crazy hours, and impossible requests.
A clear audio recording can settle disputes, disagreements, concerns of dishonesty, slander, defamation, misrepresentation, threats, rumors, etc. Most recordings, whether from mobile phone, voice recorder, security services, or analog methods have compromised sound quality. Audio enhancement can give you peace of mind and concrete proof to finally settle an issue.
If you just have to know what's on a recording, don't waste time playing around with low-quality apps that distort and do more harm than good. Let an audio forensics expert help. At Stellar Sound Labs, our specially designed and acoustically tuned studio helps us bring the truth in a recording. Get the peace of mind knowing you did all you could to bring that recording back to life--and to get on with yours.
