About Us
Read our story and take a look behind the scene.

Founded 1987, Ueberschall crafts audio loops and sound effects for professional audio- and multimedia-productions. Our path led from first offerings on floppy disks for the widespread Akai S1000 to audio CDs and CD ROMs in different formats such as WAV, AKAI or EXS 24 during the 90s, followed by DVDs with dedicated software-players to our current exclusive website-offer with digital downloads.

Today, every customer has worldwide access to the extensive catalogue of Ueberschall products, being able to download his purchases anytime including reloads in case of data loss. 

Ueberschall has produced high quality content for multiple international hard- and software manufacturers over the time. This way, Ueberschall samples have found their way to customers in hardware-synthesizers, different DAWs and even iOS apps.

Ueberschall's samples are known for superior quality. We are constantly trying to outperform our own high standards. We regularly invest in latest technology and finest equipment to deliver productions that can truly be called state of the art. Another part of the equation is our careful and competent sound work including precise microphone selections, accurate placement as well as experiments with exotic gear. No product is produced "along the way" but always with dedicated focus. From preproduction to recording sessions, from precise edits to the final quality control, a product may need several months to be published. 

Ueberschall's core team consists of CEO and founder Uwe Kinast who has embossed his sound to many of our products. Wenzel Mehnert (customer support/product management) is happy to help you out, whenever you run into problems. Julian Liedtke (editing/production) is the guy with the razorblade that assures accurate cuts and perfect loops. 

Mark Steinmeier and Kai Reuter complement the Ueberschall team as constant producers. In addition, several producers and musicians add to our productions, each of them being outstanding in their field of work or genre. To find more information about Ueberschall's producers see "Producer".

Currently, Ueberschall's website offers more than 200 products for purchase as download covering over 40 different genres. This offer ranges from live recordings to programmed beats to sound effects, sounds of nature, scoring tools up to a broad range of dance music styles. In short, a complete range for professional use! It is self-evident that all Ueberschall samples are 100% royalty free and 100% copyright clean!

Since 2001, Ueberschall focuses on loop-libraries and plug-ins. Our propriety "Elastik" sample-player offers an elaborated tagging system to manage multiple libraries of different genres. This innovative concept allows a complete new understanding and handling when working with loops. More often, Elastik finds its way into productions, in different styles, among professionals and amateurs. The results from using our awarded libraries can be heard around the globe in countless tracks, movies, television-films and advertisements.

Have fun producing!
Kindest regards, the Ueberschall team
