New York, NY (September 5, 2006)–Manhattan audio post facility, Sync Sound, recently completed a massive technical overhaul, upgrading 10 Pro Tools systems, from Mix to HD, and adding 15 new Digidesign 192 I/O interfaces and 10 new Mac G5 computers. Sync Sound worked with NYC-based retailer, Tekserve, to make this all happen.
Sync Sound founders (l-r): Bill Marino and Ken HahnSync Sound founders Bill Marino and Ken Hahn met more than 20 years ago in New York City at Regent Sound, a pioneering studio in the audio-for-video business. Today, the duo’s Sync Sound follows in Regent’s cutting-edge footsteps, with Tekserve keeping the facility operating with the latest equipment.
“We are going more towards computer-based mixing systems,” said Marino, adding that Sync Sound also recently added three Digidesign ICONs. “We’re using more Pro Tools HD systems and Digidesign products, and we wanted to upgrade our existing mix systems to HD systems. Tekserve is the kind of company that addresses this new way of working; they are Mac experts.”
With Sync Sound’s high-profile credentials, it’s of little wonder why they need to remain at the forefront of technology. The Manhattan audio post facility has worked on such notable projects as Andrea Bocelli’s first pop concert, HBO’s hit series Oz,, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and the Fox series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, just to name a few.
“Tekserve has the most background with Mac systems. In fact, in our upgrading they steered us clear of certain potential compatibility issues,” continued Marino. “I spoke to a number of vendors, and Tekserve was the only one that pointed those things out to me. It’s comforting to know that they go the extra mile. They are very professional and get us things fast.”
