SOUNDCART.audio offer a range of sound carts that are used and trusted by hundreds of Sound Recordists / Production Sound Mixers worldwide (including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, United Kingdom and United States of America).
In addition to our range of sound carts and accessories, we also offer a design service for those that wish to either adapt one of our existing designs or who would prefer something completely custom (including carts for Digital Imaging Technicians and Directors of Photography). For a selection of photos demonstrating how our carts are being used by our customers please visit our gallery or Instagram feed.
SOUNDCART.audio was founded in 2016 by U.K. based freelance Sound Mixer Matt Bacon (www.recordist.audio) who is a member of both The Association of Motion Picture Sound (AMPS) and the Institute of Professional Sound.
"Like many Sound Mixers, my first cart was an adaption of an existing industrial trolley, more precisely it was a wooden butchers block from IKEA. I then progressed to one made from aluminium poles and steel clamps but found this was cumbersome and heavy.
As my cart work became more regular I considered purchasing a commercially available sound cart but none that I found ticked all the boxes. They were either welded (so didn’t fold), similar to what I already had or were not very customisable.
With a new series about to start I decided to design and build myself a new cart from aluminium profile. This cart went on to serve me well for several series - with refinements occurring between series. These refinements ultimately led me to what is now the Production Sound Cart.
(2010) My sound cart made from aluminium poles and steel clamps.
(2012) The sound cart made from aluminium poles modified to accommodate ABS cases.
(2014) My sound cart built using aluminium profile sporting 20” orange mag wheels.
(2015) The design upon which the Production Sound Cart is closely based.
Other mixers soon began expressing interest in either buying my cart or having an identical one built for them. SOUNDCART.audio was launched in March 2016.
Following the success of the Production Sound Cart, my research and development clearly showed demand for a dedicated 19” compatible cart as well as a smaller more compact cart. The Playback Cart and MiniCart were born!
In March 2018 the Explorer Sound Cart was launched. It was a departure from previous models both in terms of materials used but also because it was our first self-assembly model. To my delight, customers have been extremely complimentary and it has been great to receive photos of customer setups demonstrating the flexibility of its design.
In 2020 the MiniCart MAX was launched building on the popularity and
The rest, as they say, is history! SOUNDCART.audio now has an enviable reputation that I am immensly proud of. However it wouldn’t have been possible were it not for the support of my family, customers and dealers."
