Los Angeles, CA (November 7, 2007)–Wildfire Post-Production Studios in Los Angeles has installed a Solid State Logic C300 HD digital audio console with an XLogic Delta-Link MADI HD system. Veteran feature film and Academy Award-nominated mixers Chris David and Leslie Schatz recently purchased the facility, which was formerly Wilshire Stages.
The four-room facility features the 48-fader, 256-channel C300 HD film console in the newly remodeled Stage C, which is designed for film and TV post along with film score mixes. The console also features two film center sections and recently introduced PEC/Direct recorder controls for multi-operator film and HDTV post mixing. The C300 supports a wide variety of input sources and output formats, while the Delta-Link MADI HD system supplies flawless data transfer between the C300 and Wildfire’s Pro Tools|HD systems.
David says, “The C300 is a fantastic console. It not only encompasses effortless digital mixing of surround stems, it works with all DAW formats through its unique workstation control interface. This is very powerful as sometimes work comes in from a variety of outside sources and DAWs.”
According to David, another attraction of the SSL C348 is the way it handles multi-channel input sources. “A lot of our business revolves around stereo source material that is multi-channel and clearly the C300 enjoys the most sophisticated and elegant handling of this task. For instance, when you bring in a 6-channel mix on the C300, you can control an entire 6-channel mix with one channel. This really helps to save on console resources and greatly improves our workflow.”
Wildfire is already pumping out productions on the C300. Recent projects include premixes for a movie called Transylmania, the film Southland Tales by director Richard Kelley and, in the near future, Rambo 4, featuring Sylvester Stallone, and Elegy, with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz.
