Post-production house Goldcrest Post Production has chosen an Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface for its newly-opened Dean Street Theatre 1, a purpose-built Dolby Atmos mixing theatre based in central London. Goldcrest’s Soho facilities are now home to three Pro Tools S6 control surfaces that have been supplied by Scrub, a division of HHB Communications.
Scrub, the post-focused subsidiary of HHB Communications, supplied the audio equipment for a new, multi-theatre Deluxe Media Audio facility in Perivale, north-west London, including a 10 foot wide Avid S6 control surface.

Our friends at Scrub have supplied Avid S6 and S3 control surfaces for Empire Design’s London post production studios.
Our friends at HHB-Scrub has supplied London’s LipSync Post with a 24-fader Avid S6 M10 console and Pro Tools upgrades.
LipSync Post is spread across two buildings in the heart of the post community in London’s Soho. Whilst upgrading their Studio 6 LipSync chose to fit an Avid S6 M10 control surface as well as a Pro Tools 11 HDX system and Scrub’s technical team customised the console layout to fit the workflow of LipSync’s engineers.
LipSync will also benefit from the new features added to the S6 in version 1.2 software, which further enhances the flexibility of layouts, VCA groups and the Softkey Editor, in addition to functions that enable editing directly from the Channel Strip.
LipSync Senior Re-Recording Mixer and Music Composer Rob Hughes told us…
When we came to update our desk in Studio 6, we wanted ultimate flexibility and integration with our Pro Tools HDX system. It’s a busy room that needs to serve as a mix studio for drama, short form and documentaries, as well as feeding work into our larger theatres and handling re-versioning and deliverables. The Avid S6 was our first choice and we’re delighted to be working with Scrub again. Their expertise is always invaluable in making the set up as fast and painless as possible.
The team from HHB will be in their usual position at IBC if you would like to have a chat with them about your requirements.
Our friends at HHB have announced the release of their interactive Avid S6 Builder web app that enables users to create their own custom configuration of Avid’s new modular mixing console.
Using Drag and drop you can place modules in the arrangement of your choice and build a bespoke console tailored to your workflow.
The S6 Builder’s sophisticated interface walks you through the process with module descriptions provided throughout. Configurations can then be shared with colleagues or sent to HHB or audio post specialists Scrub for a quotation.
Early adopters like Soho’s Envy Post are already experiencing the flexibility and powerful features offered by S6. It is a fully customisable system that can be scaled vertically or horizontally, with room to grow as needs increase. You can choose between 12 pre-configured M10 and M40 consoles, or custom configure an M40 with up to 64 faders, nine knobs per channel and a maximum of 41 modules.
You can arrange to make an appointment to view the full features of the S6 with HHB’s knowledgeable Avid specialists in a 5.1 equipped facility. The 24-fader M40 offers a unique advantage by showcasing the full range of modules available in a large format console. Pro Tools, Nuendo and Logic are installed and available for S6 demonstrations.
