Sound One, in heart of the theater district of New York, is an award-winning and globally-recognized facility that has been involved in a multitude of feature and documentary films over many decades. Dominick Tavella and Paul Yurt will explain and demonstrate the technology and techniques for editing and mixing sound for movies and television.
Creating audio for films is a multi-stage multi-team process. The discussion will include an explanation of the technology, tools and techniques of feature film sound post production. The group will be shown how Sound One’s team generates and shapes sounds.
Sound One has on premises re-recording and ADR studios, a foley studio and an extensive computing facility. Visitors will get to listen in the actual rooms where a very large number of well-known movies have been mixed. The process of mixing on a AMS/NEVE console will be explored. Questions will be a major part of the evening. Production elements (clips) will be played through Sound One’s re-recording stage systems.
