Clatter&Din (Seattle, www.clatterdin.com) hosted simultaneous audio/video sessions for a Washington State Lottery TV and radio spot. The commercial, for the “Match 4” game, was engineered by staffer Eric Johnson in the facility's new studio, which was designed by the Russ Berger Design Group and went online in February of this year.

“This was one of the first sessions we did in the new live room,” says Clatter&Din co-owner Vince Werner. “Our old rooms were of the small, dead variety, which works great for voice-over, but not for music. This new space that Russ Berger designed is fantastic-sounding. We couldn't have done the Lottery project in our old space.”

For the “Match 4” project, ad agency Cole&Weber-United hired a cappella group The Coats, whom they renamed the “Match 4s.” Coats member Jamie Dieveney wrote and produced the music, which included plenty of vocal pyrotechnics: “There was a human beat box,” Johnson says. “Even though it sounds like there's drums and synthesizers and turntables, it was all done with their voices.”

Audio was recorded and mixed in Pro Tools, and, “In this world of integrated everything,” Werner says, “we ran not only mic line but SDI line back to our Final Cut Pro room from one of the mic panels. We set up a green screen in the booth and video with a Sony EX1, and recorded the uncompressed SDI video signal to our Final Cut booth. We fed that back to the control room so the client can sit in a fabulous acoustic environment and watch what was happening on an HD projector as it went down. It was a really hybrid thing.”
