I’m Max Hirtenstein; an experienced San Francisco production sound mixer, sound designer, and the owner of 3 Volt Sound. With 88 IMDb credits and counting, I’ve got the gear and skill set to record, design, and mix great sound.
Need a sound recordist or sound mixer in the field? My work in location sound includes 5 seasons of “VICE” for HBO, "13 Reasons Why" and “The OA” for Netflix, living with hunter-gatherers in Tanzania for PBS, filming cheetahs with the BBC, and dozens of other network TV shows, documentaries, and national commercial spots. I own complete field audio packages for any project, including equipment by Schoeps, Sound Devices, Lectrosonics, Sennheiser, DPA, Sanken, and much more.
Need a post sound mixer or sound designer? My work in the studio includes sound design for countless commercials, Foley, dialogue editing, and surround sound mixing for feature films and indie docs, and a film score which charted on the iTunes World Best New Releases charts. Studio gear includes an RME Fireface UCX, Neumann KH310a monitors, and a complete plugin suite for Pro Tools HD.
