About Me

Hello! My name is Max Hirtenstein and I'm an experienced San Francisco production sound mixer, sound designer, and owner of 3 Volt Sound, Inc. 80 IMDb credits and counting...

Need a sound recordist or boom operator? 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? 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. Post sound and music gear includes a full 5.1 studio and a complete plugin suite for Pro Tools HD.
