Systems Descriptions

 

Digital Audio

We work on both PC and Mac platforms, with multiple workstations and software that helps translate among a wide variety of programs. Each computer is equipped with a 24-channel digital interface. Up to 40 simultaneous channels of analog to digital conversion are available across the two platforms. All digital audio can be routed in realtime from any device or computer to any other through a network of ADAT Lightpipe cables and a ZSys digital patchbay. All digital devices are clocked off a master Lucid Wordclock generator. The Mackie Digital 8 bus console allows mixing and routing of up to 32 channels of digital audio for creating headphone mixes or bussing to outboard gear.

 

Analog Audio

Every analog point in the studio is accessible via a 480-point TT patchbay, which ties the recording booth, console, converters, machine room, analog recorders and all analog outboard gear together. Additional signals from equipment brought into the studio may also be integrated via a 48-point TRS patchbay.

 

MIDI

MIDI is accessible via an Emagic Unitor 8, with MIDI cabling available in any room.

 

Video

 

Digital and analog video is distributed from the PC through a Firewire-based Canopus converter and an analog composite distribution amplifier. A 30-inch LCD serves the main mixing position, with a smaller flat screen at the producer’s desk and a Sony Trinitron in the recording booth for ADR and Foley work.

 

Recording Front End

OSR has built a vast array of high-end microphones, preamps, compressors, EQ’s and converters. Our collection allows for any approach to recording, from minimalist and true to highly processed and colored. Because so much mixing is done entirely in the digital domain, we find that it is often desirable to capture, during recording, the unique sonic character analog gear can impart.

 

Mixing

While most mixing is now done completely within the fully automatable, fully recallable and vastly improving world of the digital audio workstation, more traditional mixing, when desired, is also possible via our digital console, which allows routing of signals from within the computer environment to any of our high-end outboard processors and effects. In addition to internally “bounced” mixes, we can also mix to analog tape at up to 30 IPS, with Dolby SR noise reduction available.
