AUDIO PRODUCTION

constructing high-quality sound

Hear the Difference

We are constantly pushing the limits of what audio can achieve and always exploring (and listening) for the next frontier of sound. We have the capability to envision it, the state-of-the-art equipment to record it, and the expertise to master your audio efficiently.

We can mix and master every kind of audio, from podcasts, to television dialog, and film soundtracks.

CUSTOM
SOUNDTRACKS

Create music that represents your brand and your brand only. This will give you a leg up on the competition.

FLAWLESS
AUDIO

Every sound aspect of your video should be crystal clear. It’s the only way to communicate.

SEAMLESS
EDITING

No video is shot in one take, so it’s increasingly important to work with an audio tech who can piece sounds together perfectly.

Sound is 70% of What We See

Music is tied closely to emotion and memory, because of this audio can be one of the most convincing marketing tools. Don’t let your efforts in post-production get lost with the wrong sound. The right audio choice over strong visuals can make a lasting impact on your audience.

We will collaborate with you in producing quality audio material that uses both emotion and memory to connect your brand to the right audience. Utilizing audio softwares like Fairlight, Logic, and Protools to professionally mix your audio, we’ll produce the proper sound for you needed to keep your audience comeback to your brand.

Audio recordings are rarely perfect raw. Background noise, pops, and clicks are all unavoidable sounds that can make your audio sound unclear. To fix this we use tools in Fairlight like the ADR, automatic dialog replacement tool, to quickly and easily re-record muddled parts of your audio.

COMPUTERS

The Mac Pro “16-Core” is powered by a single 3.2 GHz Sixteen Core Xeon W (3245) processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.4 GHz and 38 MB of cache.

In its default configuration, connectivity includes two USB 3 ports (on a pre-installed Apple I/O card), four Thunderbolt 3 ports (two on the Apple I/O card and two on the top of the case), two HDMI 2.0 ports (on the video card), two 10Gb Ethernet ports and a 3.5 mm headphone jack with headset support in addition to 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. Of course, additional connectivity can be added with PCIe expansion cards.

With the default AMD Radeon Pro 580X graphics processor, this Mac Pro supports as many as six 4K displays, two 5K displays, or two 6K Apple Pro Display XDR displays.

  • 96GB Ram
  • 2 AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo 32GB
  • 6k Pro XDR Display

These are multitrack recorders: the F4 has four XLR/quarter-inch combo jacks, the F8 has eight, allowing connection of multiple microphones (or other audio sources) simultaneously.

The F4 and F8, Zoom has moved decisively into the realm of truly professional recorders. They’ve improved the sound quality and added professional details such as:

  • balanced line-level outputs
  • time code inputs and outputs
  • hirose power connections
  • multiple memory-card slots
  • flexible internal routing of audio signals.

The Schoeps CMC6-U microphone preamp is a balanced output stage and +12 to +48V phantom power supply for the Schoeps Colette series modular capsules. The transformer-less output stage ensures low-noise and pristine audio reproduction throughout.

The CMC6-U is terminated with a standard balanced 3-pin XLR connection for use with standard microphone inputs and preamplifiers. It can be used with very long cables and is well-protected against RFI (radio frequency interference.

The MKH 416 is a short gun interference tube microphone. Its excellent directivity and compact design, high consonant articulation and feedback rejection make the MKH 416 a superb all-round microphone for film, radio and television, especially for outside broadcast applications.

  • increased directivity due to interference tube principle
  • very low inherent self-noise
  • high sensitivity
  • transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • rugged, suitable for adverse climate conditions

Zaxcom is well known for the high-quality sound of its pure-digital wireless mic systems. While there are some competing brands with digital systems on the fringes that may eventually need to be considered, Zaxcom is currently the only significant player. 

The range of the Zaxcom TRX742 system is well within the needs of most productions, and when the goal is to have the wireless boom sound as much like a hard-wired mic as possible, Zaxcom is the clear leader. While the Zaxcom TRX742 plug-on transmitter can turn any mic that has a 3-pin or 5-pin XLR connector into a wireless simply by plugging it on, the most challenging use for a wireless system is the boom mic for dramatic dialog. So this review will be limited to the wireless boom.

Zaxcom has added versatility to the TRX742 transmitter with changeable XLR input adapters, which Zaxcom calls “cones”. There is a 3-pin cone for standard microphones (48V phantom), a 5-pin cone for stereo microphones (48V phantom), and 3-pin digital cones for both AES-3 and AES-42 microphones (10V phantom).

Sanken has introduced the COS-11D, which overcomes RFI (radio frequency interference) from the digital transmitter.

In today’s wireless transmission systems the microphone must remain unaffected by new forms of digital transmitter signals. They present new challenges in the area of emission protection. In many cases, noise levels increase and the S/N ratio is deteriorated by the interference of digital transmitters. Sanken has designed the COS-11D specifically to diminish the instances where interference is an issue. The COS-11D is an omnidirectional lavalier microphone. This microphone has been fitted with the TA5 Universal locking connection for Lectrosonics transmitters.

K-Tek has always considered the boom pole to be an extension of the audio professional’s arm.

It is essential that a good boom pole has a natural design that simply extends the reach of the microphone, quietly and lightly towards the sound or voice being recorded.

The ME 67 is a long gun microphone head designed for use with the K6 and K6P powering modules.

A highly directional microphone, it can be used where the microphone must be placed at a distance from the sound source. Matt black, anodised, scratch-resistant finish.

  • Lobar pick-up pattern
  • Highly directional
  • Very low inherent self-noise
  • High sensitivity factor
  • Wide frequency response

Specifications:

  • Pick-up pattern: lobar
  • Sensitivity in free field, no load (1kHz): 50 mV/Pa +- 2,5 dB
  • Nominal impedance: 200 Ohm (K6)
  • Min. terminating impedance: 1000 Ohm (K6)
  • Equivalent noise level: 10 dB
  • Equivalent noise level weighted as per CCIR 468-3: 21 dB
  • Dimensions: d 22,5 x 343 mm
  • Weight: 100 g

The Sennheiser ME66 shotgun microphone is the audio equivalent of a tack-sharp zoom lens on your camera.

With high sensitivity and low on-board self-noise, it’s designed to give you realistic, full-bandwidth frequency response from audio sources that might not be particularly close to you. A super-cardioid pickup pattern means you won’t be hearing any noise interference from directions off-axis from where you point the mic. The K6 powering module is designed to power the mic from an internal “AA” battery or external 12-48V phantom power, like that provided by many camcorders and mixers. It terminates in a 3-pin XLR jack for easy professional-level connections.

Fast. Flexible. Professional. 

The characteristics of the Sennheiser G3 Lavalier Mic make the ew 112-p G3 the perfect fit for every ambitious reporting team seeking both portability and great sound quality. The nearly invisible clip-on Omni-directional microphone transmits its signal via a bodypack transmitter with mute function and a portable, battery-powered adaptive-diversity receiver. The receiver and transmitter are lightweight and easy to operate, yet rugged and packed with features.
