  • All Sound Upgrades Workflow With Gear From Avid, ADAM Audio And Trinnov Audio

    All Sound is a North Hollywood-based post-production space helmed by Nick Couscouris, a veteran in recording and mixing for advertising campaigns, films, TV shows, sports and more. Prior to his recent work on Happy Ending With Nando Vila and A Quiet Place, Couscouris teamed up with Vintage King's Chris Bolitho to bring in an incredible package of new gear to All Sound.

    Dubbing his workflow as "streamlined with constant creativity," it was clear from the beginning that Couscouris wanted a set-up that would enable him to work quickly and keep ideas flowing. With that in mind, Bolitho and Couscouris envisioned a centerpiece in the new space with two Avid S3 control surfaces flanked by two Avid Docks. Each surface alone is a powerful tool, but the combination of the two enables you to use some timesaving custom controls. Continue reading

  • Utilizing The Trinnov ST2 Pro In A Project Studio

    Over the last couple of months, I’ve had the chance to sit in on two Trinnov ST2 Pro installations and detailed listening sessions.

This is where the old car test and listening on multiple sets of speakers in different listening environments came into play. Most of the time when the song leaves your mixing room for the first time, you often say, “Wow, there is way too much bass” or “Where did all the bass go?” Continue reading

  • A Comparison Of Surround Monitor Controller Options

    Surround monitor controllers are a vital link in the chain for today’s composers and post-production professionals. Situated between your DAW or console I/O and speakers, this tool serves as the control for volume attenuation and routing of your audio at the final stage of reference.

    The need for transparent and accurate control is shared by pretty much everyone, but there are a wide array of features and capabilities that require some decision making. Do you need a simple 5.1 desktop unit for an editing suite? What about something that will let you expand for additional channels down the road? How about a complete solution that will handle immersive content and also provide room and acoustic correction? Continue reading

  • Five Ways Trinnov D-Mon Will Supercharge Your Studio

    Do you trust your monitoring environment? Do your mixes translate as you expect them to? For most of us, the likely answer is “no”, or at best, “somewhat”.
