Scrub, a division of HHB specialising in post production, has supplied the Gorilla Group with two Avid S6 control surfaces and Pro Tools upgrades for its new facilities in Cardiff, Wales.
The Gorilla Group’s new studios are located in the GloWorks building, a new creative industries centre and part of the regeneration of Cardiff Bay. Wales’ largest TV facilities group, Gorilla offers a full portfolio of audio and video post production services, which includes work on drama and documentaries for Sky and the BBC and cartoons for Disney and S4C.
Scrub configured and installed the 16-fader S6 M10 and 32-fader S6 M40 mixing systems for Gorilla’s new audio editing and mixing facilities, as well as upgrades to the latest Pro Tools HDX hardware and version 11 software. Yellowtec m!ka mic and monitor arms were also supplied by Scrub.
Gorilla Senior Dubbing Mixer Tom Logan explains that the consoles were chosen to enable an expansion of their workflow and have found that the S6 platform offers a new level of mix control: “The ability to spill VCA groups on the surface of the S6 is a fantastic feature. It is great to have those faders directly in front of you and jump straight into a dialogue track to make quick adjustments.”
He is also finding that the latest Pro Tools HDX hardware and Version 11 software deliver incredible enhancements in perf
ormance and speed: “The offline bounce feature saves us a huge amount of time and the system is incredibly quick when handling large amounts of plug-ins. We often use the Channel Strip plug-in on almost every track, and with the new Pro Tools hardware and Mac Pro you can use as many instances as you need without slowing down the processing speed of the session.”
Scrub Sales Devin Workman comments: “Gorilla’s new studios are very impressive and the S6 provides them with the flexibility and performance they require. The modularity of the S6 allowed Gorilla to choose different console configurations for different room environments, and the M40 optional large TFT displays give enhanced visual feedback and editing functions in Pro Tools that no other console can provide.”
Customers are invited to arrange an appointment to view the full features of the S6 with HHB’s knowledgeable Avid specialists to see how it can be custom configured to fit seamlessly with any professional workflow application.
