Mixing it up in an IP World
What happens when you mix two top-tier film mixers and a swathe of the best analogue gear? Such Sweet Thunder of course.
Australian engineer Pete Cobbin started his career as an EMI trainee in Sydney before heading over to the UK in 1995 for a job at Abbey Road Studios. While there, he began working with Kirsty Whalley and the two soon gained a formidable reputation as top class film mixers. Four years ago, they set up their own London-based Dolby Atmos room, Such Sweet Thunder, and are now using AoIP and state-of-the-art analogue and digital technology to create amazing audio for large and small screens.
AES Virtual Vienna Student Prize Award From Merging
Kseniya Kawko wins two awards for projects recorded on Pyramix.
Merging Technologies has supported the AES Student Recording Competition for many years, both at the European and US Conventions, by donating a prize of a Pyramix Native license to the top student in the appropriate category. The situation was rather different this year with the Vienna Convention being virtual; no Merging employee could present the prize. Nevertheless, the competition went ahead as normal and produced an excellent result for a student from the Detmold Hochschule für Musik.
Kseniya Kawko was awarded the Gold Award in the Traditional Acoustic Category for the recording of the piece by Michio Miyagi “Haru no Umi” and Silver Award in the Immersive Category for the recording of the Mendelssohn String Quartet No.2 in A Minor. It is perhaps not surprising that Kseniya recorded and mixed both projects on Pyramix since Detmold and McGill University, where Kseniya did her previous studies, have been equipped with Merging products for many years. Merging operates a generous student purchase program that is designed to assist those looking to make their career in music recording.
