Long established Soho offline facility Final Cut has created a stunning new Dolby certified sound studio with the technical support of Avid Elite reseller Digital Garage using a range of Van Damme cabling.
Digital Garage’s Matt Seymour says: “We’ve been working with Final Cut for a number of years. When approached to provide a flexible, high quality audio dubbing facility, it seemed only natural to turn to Avid and their new modular S6 control surface”.
Seymour went on to explain that the Van Damme cable used in the project was Studio Blue multicore for all tie lines and interconnects, Studio Green for all AES interconnects, HD Vision for all video interconnects and Van Damme Reduced OD console for single audio connections. In addition all the patch panels, termination panels, cabling prep materials and connectors were sourced through Van Damme distributor VDC Trading.
With its new sound studio, Final Cut’s editors can collaborate on the audio element of a project from day one of rushes. Final Cut called upon Digital Garage to help facilitate the studio build. It was a natural fit, as Digital Garage had already been supplying and supporting Final Cut’s Avid-based offline post production provision.
The combination of Pro Tools | HDX and the new S6 puts Final Cut squarely at the top of audio mixing facilities. Designed to be an extension of Final Cut’s editing facility, the audio suite offers a fully integrated recording, editing, mixing, 7.1 surround sound monitoring and video playback solution. ISDN and IP connections also enable worldwide audio communication and recording. Touring the studio, the result is obvious – it’s an agile, high-end recording and mixing environment which fully complements and enhances Final Cut’s services.
Final Cut Managing Director David Webb concluded by saying: “The foundations for world-class audio are often laid down in the edit suite. We can now build on those foundations and ensure creative continuity throughout the post production process. From a voice-over record to a final cinema mix we can now achieve it all without leaving the building. We are excited with the prospects that lay in store”.
