DOLBY® MIXING THEATRE

DOLBY® MIXING THEATRE

Designed by the acoustic firm Pilchner and Schoustal, this room is built with specifically angled surfaces eliminate standing waves. Double walls and rubber isolators under the floor mean this is a “room-within-a-room”. Exacting standards, but the payoff is that FRANK meets Dolby® specs for certification as a 5.1 Print Mastering Facility, as well as Dolby® E encoding and decoding for digital delivery.

Flexibility was also a factor in the design. Sound engineers have a clear line of sight to our recording studio, or a motorized screen can be lowered in front of the window so movie Producer/Directors can watch their film on our High Definition projection system. There is a raised desk for clients, as well as a couch at the back of the room for relaxing.

Specialized equipment includes a variety of mic preamps including API, Avalon and Telefunken, Urei LA4 compressors and an enviable selection of vintage mics including two Neumann U47′s.
