CalArts Film Mixing Theater

Avid S6 M40-24-5

RSPE Audio Solutions supplied the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) with two state-of-the art S6 Control Surfaces for use in their Film/Video programs. The 24 channel S6 M40, installed in the Film Mixing Theater, will be used primarily for mixing thesis projects. Smith said this usually involves creating 5.1 (or 7.1), LtRt, and Internet mixes simultaneously.

“The S6 is the first surface that lets us record and mix projects without continuously digging through layers of hidden menus that give less useful feedback than the computer monitor. With the S6, we can actually work for extended periods without the mouse. Since the controls and displays are clearly laid out, it’s a much simpler system for students (and faculty) to learn.”
