Our friends at Scrub have supplied Avid S6 and S3 control surfaces for Empire Design’s London post production studios. You can read more about the installation below.
Senior Sound Engineer Sam Rowland attended the Avid S6 IBC launch and immediately knew it was the crucial piece of equipment needed to upgrade Empire’s Pro Tools audio suite. The UK’s leading Pro Tools specialists, Scrub supplied and installed a 16-fader S6 M40 in Empire’s Dolby approved, 5.1-equipped mixing suite, an S3 and Pro Tools software upgrades with a package that includes training and support.
Sam Rowland has been working with Pro Tools for over a decade and is now finding that the S6 gives him a new level of control over his sessions: “The design and feedback provided by the S6 is incredible. The Master Touch Module gives you touchscreen control of critical editing functions from the center of the console and eliminates the need for a second monitor because everything is right in front of you with great visual indicators. I also love being able to grab a fader and adjust dynamics and EQ on the surface, just like an analogue console.”
The S6 M40 with additional Display modules provides Empire with unprecedented visual feedback via 8-channels of high resolution TFT displays per fader, and S6s modular platform enables them to add more modules over time.
Sam Rowland explains: “The S6 puts us at the leading edge of technology by significantly enhancing our workflow and speed. Scrub has been very helpful throughout the process and their Technical Support Engineers are a trusted source of knowledge that we can always rely on. It is very reassuring to have that level of support right on our doorstep.”
Scrub Sales Devin Workman comments: “Empire’s Trailer Department creates a very high level of content and the S6 is the perfect system for work of this magnitude. Their facilities are very impressive and it is great to watch their success as they expand the audio department.”
Customers are invited to arrange an appointment to view the full features of the S6 with HHB’s Avid specialists to see how it can be custom configured to fit seamlessly with any professional workflow application.
