Editworks, one of the UK’s leading post-production houses based in London, has installed a C300 Master Studio System from Solid State Logic. Editworks, which specializes in high-end programs for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, chose the C300 to accommodate a sharp increase in 5.1-channel post-production work as high-definition television proliferates.

“Selling high-definition television includes supplying an enhanced audio experience, so the future growth in television audio post-production will be a steady increase in 5.1 material,” says dubbing mixer Adrian Smith (pictured). “As operators, we need consoles that make that requirement easy.”

For Editworks, this meant updating the company’s SSL Aysis console, which provided, Smith recalls, “eight years of very reliable service—it never crashed once.

“As dubbing mixers,” he continues, “we have to master all of the equipment we work with so that our time can be spent being creative. Choosing the right equipment helps you achieve that. After lots of demonstrations, conversations and negotiations, we decided on the C300. Some of the projects we work on require a very fast turnaround, so we had to hit the ground running. After a very easy install, the C300 took over where the Aysis left off.

“One added bonus to choosing the C300 is that it does have a ‘controller’ layer,” Smith adds. “This means that by using a custom HUI configuration, the C300 can control a workstation’s mixer, plug-ins and editing functions. The C300 has enabled us to take on extra 5.1 work and makes that transition easier. It is a beautifully made desk, sounds fantastic and with V. 2 software, it is the console for the next generation of TV sound post-production.”
