Scrub, a division of HHB specialising in post production, has supplied three Avid S6 control surfaces and the latest Pro Tools systems for Smoke & Mirrors’ new London audio department.
The Avid S6 enables the engineers at Smoke & Mirrors to choose the modules they need and custom configure the console layout to meet the requirements of each new studio. Scrub worked alongside Smoke & Mirrors’ head of audio Scott Little to specify the equipment for each room. The new consoles and Pro Tools HDX and version 11 software was installed and custom configured onsite. The new rooms have been fully booked since the launch, and the audio department is set for further expansion in the very near future.
Little explained: “It's clear Avid has considered the audio post market with the S6 console, as there are so many intuitive features geared towards this workflow. Assignable soft keys, the enhanced transport section and jog wheel, and of course the MTM multi-point touch screen, which allows you to navigate the entire project and console, having instant access to channels, sends, plug-ins, and just about anything at your fingertips, helps us work with greater efficiency and precision, which is key when turning around a large volume of high-end work under tight time constraints.”
With offices in London, New York, Shanghai and Sao Paolo, Smoke & Mirrors is a visual effects and post production company specialising in advertising, film and music.
