Audio Mixing and Recording
The main audio studio is based around a Neve Logic 2, 204 channel surround desk with the Film Panel 7:1 upgrade. The monitor section is the Blue Sky Audio Big Blue surround system and Tannoy and PMC stereo monitors. The convertors are Neve, SSL and Apogee. The main room has a large vocal and foley booth and access via adjoining doors to a 400 square foot recording area. There is full 1080HD projection and a Stewart Filmscreen projector screen. The audio and picture are kept together by an Avid Sync HD. All the studios are connected to a Facilis Terrablock 24D storage system via fibre.
Our facility has multiple colour grading platforms installed in our grading room. We have Nucoda Film Master 2015 with Valhal control panels and the complete suite of DVO plugins. This is the latest 4k version with Kona 4 and Red Rocket cards installed. We also have a Da Vinci Resolve Studio system with JL Cooper controller and 4k support. There is also Smoke, Avid Symphony and Speedgrade systems.
The soundstage is 3500 square feet and the whole building is sound treated with 100mm Rockwool RW5 Acoustic Slab. This is the most efficient soundproofing material available for this type of installation. The main walls are covered in fire treated Marquee carpet stretched against timber frames. This provides a flexible treatment that can be fine tuned as required.There is an sixty foot Cyc wall which is eighteen foot tall and is serviced by two lighting trusses spanning the whole wall. The wall is fully lit by multiple LED flood lights and various fresnel and open lights including, De Sisti and Lee HMI's, Photon Highline 600's and Canara 455 Cool Hi Lights. These can be installed on 4 meter pantographs.The main control room houses an MCI console and a Pro Tools system with 56 simultaneous inputs with a large selection of outboard and microphones. The Cyc wall can be painted to any colour on request.
