Halo installs S6 dubbing suite

Jigsaw24 is proud to have installed an Avid S6-based dubbing suite for Halo Post-Production in their new facility at 179 Wardour Street, London.

Halo Studio 5

Studio 5 is for both TV mix work and DCP 5.1 and 7.1 theatrical projects. It will also be used as a pre-mix room for Halo’s Dolby licensed studios 1 and 3.

The suite is pre-wired for Dolby Atmos and has a 24-fader Avid Pro Tools | S6 M40 control surface, a Pro Tools | HDX2, a DAD AX32, a CB Electronics TMC-1 and a custom Dynaudio 7.1 speaker system installed.

Head of Audio Operations Richard Addis said: “We’ve taken great care to make the room as versatile as possible without compromising quality in any area.”

In the same building, Halo has built a dedicated 5.1 audio editing room for its Head of Sound Editorial, Jay Price. Situated directly adjacent to the new studio, the room features a Pro Tools | HD Native system with 5.1 Dynaudio Air 6 monitoring.

DAD: Making your DAW sound amazing

DAD: Making your DAW sound amazing

The Pro Audio team at Jigsaw24 know the sound of a good thing when they hear it, and currently blowing us away is the amazing sound of the DAD (Digital Audio Denmark) AX32 and DX32 range of digital audio convertors.

DAD AX32 Banner 2015

Already the preferred choice of many of the world’s most respected professional audio production facilities, such as the legendary Abbey Road Studios, the AX32 and DX32 range of DAD convertors not only sound amazing but also bring a whole new level of functionality to any EUCON-based DAW control surface via their recently released, ground-breaking PRO|MON monitor controller option.

DAD-Monitor-Control-Pict

DAD PRO|MON is a solution for monitor controller for the Pro Tools | S6 and other EUCON 3 enabled control surfaces. It takes monitor control to a whole new level by providing functionality of both the Avid XMON and Studio Monitor Pro in one and the same platform with various I/O that will easily adapt to any Pro Tools HD, HDX or HD Native S6-based hardware environment, enabling music and post-production facilities to benefit from interfacing to both analogue and digital domains with speaker formats from stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 all the way to 64 channels for Dolby Atmos.

DAD Monitor Control

The PRO|MON Monitor Control is available on the AX32 AD/DA convertor and digital matrix, as well as the DX32 Digital audio interface and matrix, to operate as an audio signal processor providing high resolution signal summing and low latency routing of monitor signals. The monitor control is managed via the DADman 4.2 software application, which has support for the EUCON 3 control protocol, enabling full control of the monitor functionality.

DAD_DX32 Front

The versatile I/O and matrix platform comprise up to 48 channel analogue inputs or outputs, 16 channel AES/EBU I/O, 64 to 192 channel MADI I/O on up to three MADI ports, 64 channel interface for Pro Tools HD, HDX and HD Native, 64 channels of DANTE networked audio I/O as well as an embedder/de-embedder of audio from Video SDI. This enables the DAD products to perform very flexible signal routing using all the interfaces of the unit, as well as summing processing with 256 inputs and 32 outputs. With the optional DANTE audio over IP functionality, the AX32 or DX32 can deliver sample accurate audio to other DANTE-enabled devices or route signals around a facility using an existing network infrastructure.
