Wildfire Post-production studios Installs SSL C300 HD MASTER STUDIO SYSTEM with Delta-Link MADI HD


Logic is pleased to announce the
installation of a C300 HD digital audio console with an XLogic Delta-Link MADI
HD system in the newly remodeled Stage C at Wildfire Post-Production Studios.
The C300 provides Wildfire with an intelligent and efficient way of dealing
with a wide variety of input sources and output formats, while the Delta-Link
MADI HD system supplies flawless data transfer between the C300 and Wildfire’s
Pro Tools HD systems.

Post-Production Studios, formerly Wilshire Stages, was recently purchased by
veteran feature film and academy award nominated mixers, Chris David and Leslie
The four-room facility now
features the 48 fader 256 channel C300 HD film console in Studio C, which is
designed for film and TV post along with film score mixes.
The console also features two film center
sections and recently introduced Pec/Direct recorder controls for
multi-operator film and HDTV post mixing.

says, “The C300 is a fantastic console.

It not only encompasses effortless digital mixing of surround stems, it
works with all DAW formats through its unique workstation control interface. This
is very powerful as sometimes work comes in from a variety of outside sources and

to David, another attraction of the SSL C348 is the way it handles
multi-channel input sources. “A lot of our business revolves around stereo
source material that is multi-channel and clearly the C300 enjoys the most
sophisticated and elegant handling of this task. For instance, when you bring
in a 6-channel mix on the C300, you can control an entire 6-channel mix with
one channel. This really helps to save on console resources and greatly
improves our workflow.”

is already pumping out productions on the C300. Recent projects include
premixes for a movie called “Transylmania,” the film “Southland Tales,” by
Richard Kelley and, in the near future, “Rambo 4,” featuring Sylvester
Stallone, and “Elegy” with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz.

Plaskitt, SSL Group Commercial Director, said, “The C300 is fully capable of
meeting both the current and future needs of

Hollywood’s film community. With the C300 HD,
SSL’s long experience with dubbing consoles has been realized in this, the most
powerful, flexible and cost-effective package available—we believe it will set
new standards in feature film mixing and HDTV post.”

console features 80 mix busses working in tandem with a new 56-track Pro Tools
HD3 recorder. The C300 HD integrates Pro Tools control using techniques
successfully pioneered with SSL’s AWS 900+ Analogue Workstation System. This
brings the workstation into the console allowing control of Pro Tools from the
console control surface. The XLogic Delta-Link MADI HD system facilitates
direct interconnectivity between Digidesign Pro Tools|HD systems and MADI-enabled
audio equipment.

“The C300
also has a very good monitoring system,” explains David. “It is very easy to
switch channels and formats and this is something quite useful to us in the
post production business. For example, a single DVD release quite often
requires 5.1, 6.1 and Dolby 2-track that demands 4-channel monitoring. The C300
will switch between those very conveniently. I like the Delta-Link system
because it enables us to pass 64 direct output Pro Tools channels to the
console without needing any additional interface. The fact that we are able to
run down a single cable for MADI formatted communication, makes life much
easier. The console has the most powerful, best sounding digital signal
processing of any digital console, and, coupled with the new SSL Delta-Link
MADI HD system and direct control of our Pro Tools system, we have a very
powerful creative tool to offer our clients.”
