My name is Chris Bolte and I'm a sound designer and
audio mixing & mastering engineer based in Boston, MA.
As of this year, I've been recording sounds for 20 years with my passion for audio still burning stronger each day. My background is in music and my degree is in jazz performance and education. I also ran a recording studio in Bückeburg Germany for 8 years.
Since 2019 however, my focus shifted primarily towards sound design and mixing, the result of which are over 30 sample and sound effects libraries released to date as well as passion for field recording that led me as far as Zimbabwe to capture the sounds of our world.
Besides sound, video games are my favorite thing ever, and so it was only a matter of time until I started pursuing sound design for games. My favorite games are Outer Wilds, Stray, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Mega Man Legends 2. Besides audio and gaming, I love cycling, traveling, and occasional electronics projects like restoring my multi-track reel-to-reel machine.
Have fun checking out my portfolio below!
I also mix and master music professionally. Here's a playlist.
