I really love Radiohead and I saw them in Poland(Open'er Festival) this summer. It was awesome!

This is not an app, this is sounds for apps

Jan 11, 4:43PM EST0

What do you think is the top characteristic of a good sound? What do you classify as noise?

Jan 11, 8:57AM EST0

The main rule is to find sounds that will be good for your application. Often the question is not whether the sound is good or not, but whether it is suitable.

I think noise is all sounds that are unnecessary and do not perform any useful functions.

Jan 11, 4:21PM EST0

You have worked with great companies creating UI sounds, how was the experience? Can you share a story?

Jan 11, 6:57AM EST0

I recently made sounds for new electric cars, it was a very interesting experience. It was necessary to make neutral sounds that the driver will hear often - they should not be annoying and should inform the driver of important events. I really enjoyed working on this project!

Jan 11, 4:28PM EST0

Do you have a favorite music? What makes it special to you?

Jan 11, 6:32AM EST0

I like different kinds of music. I really like Radiohead, for example. I like a lot of little-known bands, like Unknown Mortal Orchestra, or the Russian band Наадя. I love the Beatles or recordings of the Motown label. Also now I listen to classical music, like Rachmaninov, for example.

Jan 11, 4:38PM EST0

What is the apps limitation, if any?
