Margarita Mix of Santa Monica, a FotoKem company specialising in audio post services for commercials and advertising media, has installed a fourth Fairlight EVO integrated audio production system for their award-winning team of sound designers, mixers and composers. With the upgrade, the facility’s accomplished sound mixers Paul Hurtubise, Jimmy Hite, Nathan Dubin and Jeff Levy are now working on identical audio post platforms in their HD mixing suites.
“The facility was already working extensively on Fairlight, and after careful evaluation and testing, I made the transition,” says Hurtubise, who joined Margarita Mix in late 2012 with over 20 years of experience in commercial audio post. Having used a number of platforms over the course of his career, Hurtubise notes, “I simply think Fairlight sounds better. It’s less fatiguing on the ears, and I seem to hear things more clearly and definitively.”
London-based Sky Vision Sound Studios, part of the international distribution arm of Sky, has recently completed a major upgrade of its Fairlight equipment to bring it in line with Sky’s UK broadcasting facilities in Osterley. The three-studio complex, two mix rooms and a prep room, has upgraded its Fairlight Constellation console with a Fairlight EVO, six of which are already in use at Sky. It has also upgraded its XYNERGI system by installing the latest software version – a move that is already improving workflow.
Sky Vision’s Audio Supervisor and Senior Dubbing Mixer Robert Thompson says: “Although we have handled work for external clients such as Sky, the BBC, Universal and Channel 5, the majority of our work comes from Sky Vision. As work often moves between Sky’s sound studios and ours, it made sense for us to have identical equipment. The dubbing mixers at Sky were obviously very happy with their Fairlight EVO’s and this, combined with our own good experiences of Fairlight, meant we had no qualms about upgrading our own desk.”
Fairlight’s EVO.Live broadcast and live production console has won a second major accolade after being voted a winner in NewBay Media’s first ever IBC Best of Show Awards.
EVO.Live won in the TVB Europe category, which was judged at IBC 2014 by an independent panel of experts who examined each product nominated in depth. The judging criteria assessed nominations for their design, features, cost efficiency and performance in serving industry professionals.
Fairlight’s EVO.Live is already the recipient of a Pro Audio Review and Pro Sound News Best of Show Award from NAB 2014.
