PARIS — Amadeus, which develops, manufactures and sells a wide range of high-end sound reinforcement loudspeakers, studio monitors and signal processing interfaces that combine its own technology with stylish design, recently designed 10 studios for Paris’s Creative Sound (http://creative-sound.fr), including a Dolby Atmos cinema mix studio. Located at the heart of the 15th Arrondissement in Paris, Creative Sound is one of France’s largest post production facilities. The studio provides creative solutions for all cinematic and TV sound needs.
Amadeus was tasked with all of the interior acoustical and architectural design, including sound isolation, noise and vibration control engineering, and acoustic treatments for each of the ten studios. Amadeus also designed a mixing studio that’s fitted with Dolby’s Atmos audio technology. The studio hosts the large-format Harrison MPC5 digital film-mixing console.
"In the beginning I was looking for a medium-sized building location in order to extend my first film-production suite at Le Grand Pavois in Paris, to create an ideal environment for mixing and Foley production when I stumbled upon a 1000-square meter space in the heart of the 15th arrondissement of Paris,” notes owner and mixer Cristinel Sirli. “By acquiring such an incredible place in the heart of Paris, I felt that had to build a state-of-the-art complex to provide filmmakers, mixing engineers, and recording artists the ultimate environment in which to work."
Creative Sound’s Sirli was the mix engineer for the successful 2007 Romanian film, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days. The studio’s film mixing and dubbing credits include The King's Speech, Diana, August, Osage County, and Homefront. French mix engineer Jean Pierre LaForce is currently working on the Foley sound for Gemma Bovery, an upcoming drama based on the 1999 graphic novel of the same name.
In addition to the Harrison console, the facility’s gear list includes a 72-fader SSL C300 HD Master Studio System and a 32-fader C10 HD.
