Sakis is a dedicated and passionate professional with high attention to detail. With more than thirty years of experience in the professional audio industry, he is here to help meet your audio forensic needs, lawfully and efficiently.
Sakis has been employed by local and international clientele to investigate their cases in forensic audio such as Pam Williams, Senior writer for “The Australian”, IAG , Arnold Bloch Leiber (ABL), SIRVA, Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, NASA’s Apollo 9 mission for astronaut’s voice comparison and identification, Ken Cush & Associates, IAAS Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, Papa Hughes Lawyers Drew &
Napier LLC, Singapore, and many others.
Sakis has been summoned and given testimony in a court of law – based on his findings.
Sakis was one of the first sound engineers in Australia to purchase and operate dedicated computers capable of producing professional audio and operate Digital Audio Workstations (DAW).
In 1994 he founded Digisound Mastering in which he provided professional audio mastering services for local and overseas artists, working with bands and artists such as Pseudo Echo, Jon Anderson, Scattered Order, Roger Landes and many others. www.digisoundmastering.com
In October, 2000 he joined AES (Audio Engineering Society) and is also certified by Apple for their ADM (Apple Digital Masters) concept. In 2002 Sakis progressed to audio forensics and began testing prototypes for leading edge software manufacturers that developed specialised software for forensic audio purposes such as Algorithmix in Germany, Waves in Israel and Magix Sequoia in Germany. The spectrographic plotting, identification and manipulation of audio information is still in use extensively today in forensic audio investigations.
Sakis has been participating since the late 90s in major conferences, such as AES & NAMM and attended technical workshops all over the world in order to stay up to date with developments in technology.
Sakis has also written articles, reviews and tips that were published in professional audio publications such as Audio Technology – an Australian professional audio magazine and Sound Maker in Greece, (no longer published).
Sakis developed his expertise in digital audio over the past 30 years. When he started practising digital audio manipulation in 1992 there were no courses or schools available to provide the relevant tuition. He taught himself digital audio theory and subsequently became involved with the manufacturers mentioned above in assisting the development of their products, which include a vast range of audio processors, including processors for forensic purposes.
Over the past several years, Sakis has also been doing his own research into electromagnetic interference and other aspects of sound behavior in several countries – more to come on this soon.
