FX/SFX:The flying, and Soundwaves and the zooming. All good CGI for 1994.

Nickname:"Listen"
Logo:On a black background, we zoom by the red cube, then we turn around as we see the other cubes, and it's revealed it's part of the logo, but turned over. as we slowly pan to the center of the logo, some words appear, in this order: "Listen", "Can you hear it?" "Can you feel it?", and "If you can, you know it's in....". When we finally reach the center of the logo, It turns into a sunny sky background as "Digital Sound" and "Digital Sound Like you've Never Heard" fade in, along with the website address and copyright info.
