Along the lines of the visual identity the acoustic elements are derived from the brand values and the brand positioning. The objective is to create a consistent identity with a strong recognition value. Key areas of design are: sound branding elements, soundscapes, soundmarks and brand voice.

Dear Karlheinz, I think you need a few more parameters to the definition.
My opinion that there more options to consider, not only recognition, but also differentiation, flexibility, involvement, expirience, consistence and personality.
this is a definition of the term “Sound Identity”. What you mean is the process of developing Sound Branding Elements (->). In that sense you’re absolutely right. Moreover you should add technical limitations and cultural considerations.
It says it all
