MONTAGE M Sound Designer Series, Part II

Welcome to the second episode in a three-part Behind the Synth podcast series featuring MONTAGE M Sound Designers. ICYMI, check out Part One featuring Dan Rouse and Dave Polich here.

This episode features Peter Schwartz and Eliot Lipp, two remarkable sound designers who bring their own unique approach to the art. Peter and Eliot are highly successful artists as well, bringing years of experience to bear in their sound design.
