Beatstreet hosts 'U2' sessions

NEW YORK — Beatstreet Productions ( recently hosted mixing sessions for the new U2 Innocence + Experience Live In Paris release. Available on DVD, Blu-ray and as a Super Deluxe package, the concert commemorates the band’s rescheduled performances in Paris following the terrorist shootings at the Eagles of Death Metal show last November.

Mixer Carl Glanville, Post's Marc Loftus and Beatstreet principal Joe Franco.

Mixer Carl Glanville spent two months working on the project in Beatstreet’s surround sound room. The concert was captured at the AccorHotels Arena in France back in February. Glanville then performed mixing on the event’s performance footage, as well as the bonus footage that’s included with the title. U2 Innocence + Experience Live In Paris offers both 5.1 and stereo soundtracks.

Located on Broadway in New York City, Beatstreet is a boutique audio post facility that regularly works on sound for animated programming. The studio’s 5.1 suite is home to an Avid D-Control console that’s paired with a Pro Tools HD DAW running Version 11 software and configured with two Avid HDX cards. Beatstreet’s 5.1 suite was designed by Chris Bowman and constructed by Dennis Darcy. It’s outfitted with five Genelec 1031 monitors and a 7070A subwoofer.
