Martin Stig Andersen“For me, it’s not about recreating reality. It’s about what else the sound can convey, and how you can trigger the player’s imagination. That’s a quality I like about Ann’s sounds - you get a feeling that each sound is about much more than what it actually represents.”

– Martin Stig Andersen, Game Audio Sound Designer & Composer (INSIDE, LIMBO)

Gary Rydstrom“Ann Kroeber has a unique ability to provide one-of-a-kind sound effects. Both as a recordist, and as the knowledgeable gatekeeper of a vast, renowned library, Ann has given me great sounds that lead to great ideas.”

– Gary Rydstrom, Winner of 7 Academy Awards® in sound

Peter Albrechtsen“Ann’s amazing animal recordings are truly unique. I’ve used several in my projects for both actual animals and scary monsters as well as elements in big effects design...The expressive vocals and detailed, sensitive sounds of the horse still amaze me."
