Burbank, CA (January 27, 2009)–Chace Audio has launched TriggerTone, a searchable, interactive database of audio terminology offering concise, clear interpretations of a variety of common and uncommon terms as they relate to audio post production and restoration.
The site is designed as a resource for those in the post production arena to gain a general understanding of the lexicon of sound terminology as it is used by audio post production engineers. Nearly 300 definitions are currently featured on the site; this number will soon expand to more than 500. As the industry and technology continues to evolve, new terms will be added. Chace Audio invites visitors to suggest terms via a link provided on the website.
Chace Audio scheduling manager Michael Werckle explains, “Our industry has developed its own unique language. The words used in audio post production may resemble terms from other related audio fields or even from everyday vernacular, but many have taken on new meanings in the context of our particular environment. Instead of offering purely academic definitions, the focus of TriggerTone is to explain terms in an accurate but relatively easy to understand manner. This specific knowledge set has never before been made available in this way.”
While a majority of those working in various aspects of studio production and post production are familiar with the general history of film and video, many are not well-versed in audio post production terminology, especially in fields like restoration, preservation and soundtrack re-mastering.
Chace Audio, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has restored, re-mastered and/or up-mixed the soundtracks to thousands of iconic and award-winning films including Close Encounters of the Third Kind: 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition, Gone With The Wind, and Bridge on the River Kwai for DVD and/or Blu-ray disc release.
