About Us

Make That Louder was founded in January, 2021 by me, Adam Sliger! I spend the entirety of the 2010’s learning everything I could about recording and producing music, opening my first commercial studio, Sunray Recording Studio, in 2012.

Sunray Recording Studio

My friend David and I started that studio with a desk from Guitar Center, a few hundred dollars of gear from Facebook Marketplace, and whatever microphones we had accumulated after playing in a band together.

Over time, it evolved into a full time business, and we recorded a lot of great tunes for bands and artists in that room.

In 2017, we moved to a new, larger location, and rebranded as Pioneer Sound.

Pioneer Sound offered full recording, mixing, and mastering, as well as live video performances.

In late 2019, I moved to a home studio setup to focus more on TV/film sync music, and custom music clients.

Since then, I’ve had placements with clients like:

• Netflix
• HBO Max
• Hulu
• MotorTrend
• History Channel

• Discovery Plus
Walt Disney World

and more! Full sync credits are listed below.

In 2021, I started Make That Louder to serve as a resource for producers and engineers looking to improve their sound, and for artists looking to record their own music. As recording equipment has become more affordable, more and more artists are self-producing, so we’re here to help those artists create their best sounding music yet.
