We are delighted to announce that Mike Aiton is joining the Pro Tools Expert team to work alongside Mike Thornton in covering the world of audio post production and to bring his unique take on things too.
Mike Aiton is a freelance dubbing editor and mixer with his own faciltiy in Twickenham in the UK. He started his career joining BBC Sound at TV Centre. After 5 years at the BBC Mike joined TWI/IMG as a dubbing mixer. Next Mike joined the team at Molinare as a Senior Dubbing Mixer where he mixed many stalwarts of the U.K. broadcast scene. Then Mike set off for a career as a freelance Dubbing Mixer. However after 9 months of successful freelancing Mike became Head Of Sound of Clearcut Pictures and oversaw the expansion of the sound department into a thriving team. However the lure of freelancing was too strong and Mike once more set sail on his own course and it a very busy freelance mixer in London. More recently, Mike set up his own Pro Tools digital studio, “mikerophonics” to offer his clients a more personal and cost effective service and hasn’t been scared to try new technologies like the Slate Raven MTi and the Pro Tools PC.
If you would like to know more about Mike Aiton then have a listen to our Podcast Interview where we chat about how his career has developed and also cover using Source-Connect. Mike also helped us with some research and tests on what video hardware to use with Pro Tools 11 and found that the AJA hardware performed so much better than his Blackmagic hardware. We also took a look at when to use dipped and undipped stems and his Pro Tools session template and workflow. Following on from that Mike walked us through the plug-ins he chooses to use in his workflow.
Welcome Mike to the Pro Tools Expert team.
