A Recording Powerhouse
Located in Burbank, CA, Keywords Studios LA specializes in full-service audio post production and content localization for film and television. Among their many audio services are ADR & Voiceover Recording, Sound Design & Implementation, and Audio Mixing.
Having previously worked with Westlake Pro on a 5.1 surround mixing retrofit, the Keywords team knew exactly who to call when they needed to outfit a new studio with a brand-new Dolby Atmos system.
They reached out to Stephen Bannister and Westlake Pro’s Design Services Group once again to install and integrate a new ADR studio and control room, and the team wasted no time in putting together a state-of-the-art Immersive Audio build.
Gearing Up For An Immersive Workflow
Keywords’ new control room was outfitted with a 7.1.4 Dolby Home Entertainment Atmos system with fold-down and array setups for 2.0, 5.1, 5.1-Array, and 7.1 surround, allowing audio to be mixed in almost all major formats. Dolby Atmos Production Suite and Dolby Audio Bridge were also installed and configured for a single-CPU ‘in-the-box’ Atmos workflow.
On the other side of the glass, a simple yet elegant live recording room with acoustic treatment was set up for talent to record voice-overs for ADR and dialogue localization. An integrated talkback system between the two rooms ensures that the talent and engineer can communicate effortlessly.
