Paris, France (February 25, 2014)—Paris-based Amadeus provided the interior acoustical and architectural design for Creative Sound’s post production facilities in the city, which opened recently.
Amadeus provided sound isolation, noise and vibration control engineering, and acoustic treatments for each of the 10 studios at Creative Sound. Amadeus also designed one of the first mixing studios to be fitted with Dolby Atmos audio technology, which hosts an ultra-large-format Harrison MPC5 digital film-mixing console.
Cristinel Sirli, Creative Sound mixing engineer and studio owner, reports, “In the beginning, I was looking for a medium-sized building location in order to extend my first film-production suite at Le Grand Pavois in Paris, to create an ideal environment for mixing and Foley production, when I stumbled upon a 1,000-square-meter space in the heart of the 15th arrondissement of Paris. I wanted to bring together the best skills in terms of architectural acoustics with an extensive range of iconic recording equipment from Harrison, Solid State Logic, Dolby, Bricasti and others.”
According to Michel Deluc, director of research and development at Amadeus and head of Amadeus Labs, the Amadeus integrated research department for architectural acoustics and electro-acoustical integration, “I used and enhanced many of our techniques at Creative Sound that we have experimented with over the past 20 years at Amadeus Labs, especially in the field of music recording.”
Bernard Byk, co-founder of Amadeus, states, “Our aim has always been to imagine, design and manufacture devices, equipment, speakers, and design studio spaces so that what listeners hear is perceptually indistinguishable from the original sounds. Amadeus has practical knowledge in many areas of expertise that converge to create transparent listening experiences. We love to give listeners the deep emotional impact of what music and sound can really create.”
