Burbank, CA (October 26, 2018)—Los Angeles-based sound mixer Bryan Sol Aponte is using a cart full of Lectrosonics wireless equipment on the new ABC-produced comedy TV series Splitting Up Together.
Filmed on the Warner Brothers lot, season two of Splitting Up Together stars Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson and chronicles a couple’s relationship suddenly reignited by their divorce. “On the set, Warner Bros. offers me all brands of gear, but I choose Lectro,” says Aponte. For the production, he is using Lectrosonics SM Series transmitters, wireless HMs and IFBT4 IFB transmitters with 14 IFBR1a receiver packs as well as a Venue receiver.
Aponte, who started his career after graduating from the Institute of Audio Research in Sound Engineering and Long Island University in Media Arts, says, “I have friends mixing for other productions on the Warner lot as well. And all the sound engineers I know there are all using Lectro, too.”
Since 2000, Aponte has worked for major networks such as BET, ABC, E! Network and CBS. In 2004, he received two Emmy nominations for his work on the television series The Young and the Restless, where he did post-production sound for over 540 episodes. Aponte founded Full Frequency Media, a full-service, cross-platform media production company in 2010.
From his experience on other productions in the past, Aponte knows frequencies can sometimes be a challenge. “Outside of the Warner Bros. lot when I’m shooting on location, one of my challenges is the RF signal, so I use Wireless Designer from Lectrosonics and it’s amazing. The software connects to my Venue Receiver and helps me coordinate frequencies quickly. It’s easy to use and it’s a quick fix.”
