Burbank, CA (August 11, 2010)–Steven Klein, designer, builder, and president of Steven Klein’s Sound Control Room, Inc., announced the completion of AudioMachine, Inc’s production facility in Burbank, CA.
Studio A features a large live recording room and isolation booth. Designed and conceived as a composer’s workspace, and able to produce musical products from composition to completed mix, a key feature of the room is the central mix position, which is a composer’s workstation with mixing console and outboard gear to each side.
Paul Dinletir, owner of the multi-room Audiomachine production music studios, installed a 32-input Rupert Neve Designs 5088 discrete analog mixing console in the composing suite. The 5088 adds mixing capabilities to the facility, which produces music that has been used for motion picture advertising campaigns for such feature films as Avatar, Star Trek, District 9, Robin Hood, Prince of Persia and the upcoming Secretariat.
The Rupert Neve-designed console not only provides Dinletir with the control that he needs but it also speeds up the mixing process, which is critical when he typically must mix up to five tracks a day, he says. “Mixes come together faster. A capable person with Pro Tools and a summing mixer might be able to give you a great mix, but I guarantee that it will take five or six times the amount of time. I can do a mix that used to take a whole day in two or three hours; it’s just like the console glues it together. When you output from the Pro Tools channel directly into the console it sounds better and it comes together faster. I’m thrilled!”
The console was purchased from Jeff Ehrenberg, head of west coast sales for pro audio dealer Vintage King, who also has a 5088 installed in his own Infrasonics Sound studios.
