Audio post-production house World Wide Audio Inc. (New York City) has installed a 48-fader, 176-path AMS Neve Capricorn digital audio console in its primary mix room for 5.1 surround film and broadcast mixes.

“The Capricorn is simply the best-sounding digital music console on the planet, and we wanted the highest quality available,” explained Georgia Hilton, owner of World Wide Audio. “And we like the fact that it’s physically smaller while technically huge. You don’t need rollerskates to operate it.”

The Capricorn is digitally connected directly to and from a set of Pro Tools systems for digital editing, mixing and playback. Hilton said she likes the speed and improved sound quality when staying entirely within the digital realm. “By avoiding all of the in-between steps like analog stem printing and other analog submixes, we’re able to get work done at a much faster pace and keep the mix at a higher quality."

The Capricorn has already been put to work on one feature film and a short film at the USS Intrepid Air & Space Museum. Hilton said that she’s also looking forward to producing some 5.1 remixes for record label Murder Inc., and is eager to begin work with the 7.1 software for Capricorn.

The new board will also be used for one-on-one private tutoring sessions.
