Mix 2: Soundtrack Pro Room
Location: Melnitz 2558
Mix 2: Soundtrack Pro Room was redesigned in Fall 2007 to establish a classroom and recording space that was entirely dedicated to using the Final Cut Studio 2 applications for sound, especially Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro. The original projection booth of this theater was redesigned with wall treatments to become a small Voice Over and Foley recording booth.
The booth contains a microphone and stand, lines to the theater, a set of eight Foley pits and surfaces, quiet incandescent lighting, a 22” flat widescreen display for watching playback of picture. The display has a built-in webcam which sends an image of the talent in the booth to the recordist in the main theater.
The theater/control room features three 22” flat widescreen displays in a row: One for the software application, another for full screen playback of picture and a third for watching the booth’s webcam. The theater also has large JBL stereo speakers, a Mac Pro computer with Final Cut Studio 2 and a Mackie ONYX board which powers and mixes the booth microphones, provides talkback for the recordist to the talent in the booth and interfaces with the apple computer via firewire.
