APD has done graphic arts for a variety of clients, and the resulting
images have been used in print ads, playbills, posters, mass-transit
buses and their bus-stop shelters, newspapers--virtually everything from
business cards to billboards. Below are some samples of the work we
have done; click on any of the thumbnails below to see a larger image.

Below are MP3 clips of various projects that APD has done over the
years. In most cases, the clips are not complete, but are enough to
give you an idea of the abilities and experience of APD.
Arns Publishing has been doing digital sound design since the mid '90s,
creating sound effects, changing soundtracks' pitch and tempo
independently, assembling audio medleys and montages, seamlessly
extending songs that were too short, and more. Below are some samples:
- Excerpt from
1st Christian Church's 2003 Easter Service: For this
project, the actors were recorded, as were the "clay jars" sound
effects, the wind was obtained from a sound-effects CD and extended
because it was too short, some effects were added to the angel's
voice, and the whole thing was mixed down to a stereo CD for the
Medley: For this project, the client wanted pieces of several
'80s songs assembled into a unit, with a particular drum riff as the
"glue." These songs were of several different styles, keys, and
tempos, and the end result--to be the soundtrack for a dance
number--had to maintain timing and cadence (the downbeats had to match)
so the dancers didn't have to re-sync with the music every time a new
clip started. Here is that assemblage, with the bulk of the songs
removed, so you can hear just the transitions.
Stampede: This example is from the mid '90s: I was required
to come up with a buffalo-stampede sound effect. Not having one, I
created it by doing the following:
The result of the above was a convincing-sounding buffalo
stampede storming past on the 19-century American plains.
- Took a shod-horse-on-cobblestones sound effect and sent it through
a lowpass filter several times to remove high frequencies; this
made it sound more like unshod hoofbeats on dirt.
- Copied and pasted the newly-created, but short,
hoofbeats-on-dirt sound effect into a longer one,
ensuring seamless joints and continuity of cadence.
- Faded the long sound in at the beginning, and out at the end,
making it sound like an individual buffalo was approaching,
rushing past, and then receding.
- Duplicated the approach-and-recede sound effect multiple times
and slightly stretched or compressed each waveform a bit to make
the buffaloes sound like they were not all running in unison.
This completed the foreground sound.
- To create the background roar of a huge of herd of stampeding
buffaloes, I took two other sound effects: a "deep underwater"
sound, to provide the low-frequency rumble, and a waterfall
sound, to provide the high-frequency "white noise" that would
be caused by all the pebbles, sticks, and underbrush that would
be dislodged and thrown about by the thundering hooves.
- Composited all of the above together, and added a bit of ebb
and flow to account for random variations in the buffalo herd's
density from one point to another, the final mix was faded in--as
the herd approached--and faded out--as the herd receded.
- Seamless Doctoring of Audio: Somewhere in each of the following
30-second soundtrack excerpts is a seam, where APD took one part of
the song and blended it into another. Can you find the seams?
