SSL C300 GOES ONLINE AT WILDFIRE POST Wildfire was formerly Wilshire Stages, prior to its purchase by veteran mixers Chris David and Leslie Schatz. The new, two-position C300 features 48 faders and 256 channels and will be used on film and TV post projects, as well as on film score mixes.The C300 is designed to allow the studio to efficiently deal with a wide range of input sources and output formats. The Delta-Link MADI HD system handles data transfer between the C300 and Wildfire's Pro Tools|HD digital audio workstations.

David says he was impressed with the C300's ability to work with DAWs, as well as its ability to handle 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," he notes. "For instance, when you bring in a six-channel mix on the C300, you can control an entire six-channel mix with one channel. This really helps to save on console resources and greatly improves our workflow."

The studio is already using its new mixing console on premixes for the films Transylmania and Southland Tales. Upcoming projects are set to include Rambo 4, featuring Sylvester Stallone, and Elegy, with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz.
