Boutique sound design and music supervision company String and Tins have added a second Dolby Atmos suite to their studio facility in Fitzrovia. The new addition reflects the company’s mission to craft award winning sound design and music for advertising, whilst expanding into feature films, spatial music mixing and immersive audio opportunities.
Overseeing the technical infrastructure of the expansion, technical director, Kaspar Broyd, took the opportunity to add Dante audio and video connectivity across the facility. The new studio will allow the team at String and Tins to record talent from any booth to any studio, which means more flexibility for their clients and more scope for large format recording sessions.
Equipped with a custom Atmos speaker solution (9.1.4 Dolby Atmos system), which was designed by Munro Acoustics, the new Studio 5 has a UHD laser projector, Avid mix console and the latest Apple Silicon processing, making it the best space for complex and demanding creative projects.
Hungry to push the technology horizons, String and Tins recently collaborated with London-based electronica and techno producer Max Cooper to create Dolby Atmos mixes for his album and epic immersive audio-visual album, Unspoken Words. A creative highlight for the artist, the Atmos room provided immersive home-entertainment mixing and the chance to delve into new special audio possibilities with the team.
For online audiobook and podcast service Audible, String and Tins created a spatial audio mnemonic to kick off all of Audible's 3D content and to show the immersive potential of binaural storytelling.
Max Cooper, comments: “Working with the amazing team and beautiful Atmos room at String and Tins was a creative highlight of recent times for me. We delved deep into new spatial audio possibilities and created something really special which couldn’t have been done any other way or with any other team. They all have my highest recommendation.”
Excited to further explore immersive mixing, Adam Smyth, creative director at String and Tins, says: "A second Dolby Atmos studio gives our team more chances to creatively explore the capabilities of immersive sound. From VR, binaural re-renders, to 360 art installations or just killer immersive mixes, this new space helps inspire us to push ourselves and our work/sonic capabilities even further.”
Mike Bamford, founding partner at String and Tins, adds: “We’re always up for pushing the limits of new kit and this new setup allows us to work with huge scoring and sound design projects, smoother and faster than ever before.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessString and Tins, Thu, 01 Dec 2022 11:01:10 GMT
