Visioneering Design recently completed a total renovation package for Santa Monica, Calif.'s Eleven Sound, an audio post house.

Opened five years ago, Eleven Sound abandoned its previous DSP workstations for 128 channels of Pro Tools|HD3 in each of the two rooms, and an HD1 system in the machine room for offline work. The studios feature ProControl master units with two additional fader packs, Martinsound Monitor Max in combination with Multi Max for 5.1 monitoring, and nearly 1 TB of sound effects online at all times via a 1-gigabit Ethernet network.

"Visioneering's Ron Lagerlof came up with the ideas, did the design, salvaged what we could from our existing signal path and routers, and basically saved my butt," said Eleven Sound owner Jeff Payne. Working mainly on national TV commercials, the facility's clients include Nike, Acura, Apple, Dodge, Chevy, Ford and Sprint. "Given just one week of downtime for the facility, Visioneering's crew transformed the machine room and studios. Everything worked perfectly, including talkback, cue, studio playback and surround monitoring."

Payne said that the upgrade was necessitated by a dramatic shift in workflow during the past two years. "We have very little use of tape, DATs or DA-88s anymore. About 80 to 90 percent of material comes via the Internet. We go to FTP sites, download the files and load it into the system. Typically, we handle the sound effects here, even Foley, plus voice-overs and the final mix."
