Our 420 m3 cinema mixing room has been designed from the beginning thinking in an acoustic perfection: the choice of construction materials, the morphology of the room and the absence of external sound pollution -the room is in the middle of nature- were determinants in the realization of the entire project. Built from scratch with different materials (adobe, wood & earth), the studio has a perfect balance between absorption and reverberation, thus creating a pleasant feeling for sound waves to blend together without an excessive sound return or the feeling of a dead room. Our sound mixing room, configurable for 5.1 or 7.1 mixing environment (soon ATMOS) has been renewed and re-certified with a professional and modular control surface, S6 M40 from AVID with 4 Pro Tools HDX 2 systems with MTRX interfaces. AVID S6 combines, in a modular and revolutionary design, the best of the two leading products of the audio post-production industry: ICON and System 5. We also have a peripheral T.C. Electronic System 6000.
The studio complies with all the acoustical requirements for a Cinema Mixing Stage (Noise Control, Frequency response, Reverberation time). You can find the technical report and blue prints of the studio in this site). Our mix engineer, Carlos Cortés, is at the complete disposal of your project. However, if you prefer to work with your own engineer, Carlos will offer technical assistance.
