Mark Cromer

As an Audio Director, Senior Sound Designer and Composer, I have managed audio departments, created sound effects, composed, arranged, performed, recorded, implemented and produced audio and music in various styles for many diverse projects. I have coordinated out-of-house composers, musicians and voice actors, and implemented, tested and fine-tuned final game audio. At Firaxis Games, I was Audio Director for the Civilization franchise. At Big Huge Games, I created and implemented music and sound effects for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning which sold over a million games in its first month. For the past 5 years I’ve worked as a Senior Sound Designer and Composer, designing a wide variety of music and sound effect for slot games at Circle 8 Games in Reno Nevada. I’ve worked on over 30 video game titles and over 100 slot games. I have a working knowledge of Pro Tools, FMOD, Perforce, Sound Forge, Vegas, Final Cut, Digital Performer, Logic, Peak, After Effects, Unity, and Cuebase to name a few. I received a Masters in Classical Guitar from The Peabody Institute and can play upwards of 20 different stringed instruments which I often use in my compositions.
