Scammer Alert!! Miles Reyna Gaines

Miles Reyna Gaines is a South Bay based scammer and ripoff artist who poses as

a musician and producer. He staged a break in of his own vehicle to steal 15k worth of our vintage mics.

Fortunately, the person he sold them to was honest  and returned them to us.

He has also ripped off studios doing fake wire transfers and checks to pay for studio time.

Looks like a kid, but beware!!!

Advanced Audio provides Avid ProTools HDX for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

Los Angeles, CA. - Advanced Audio recently provided all of the Avid ProTools HDX systems used to record John Williams' score for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

The score was recorded on the historic Sony Pictures scoring stage in Culver City, CA., and mixed at James Newton Howard's studios in Santa Monica, CA.

"This was his first major film that was recorded, edited, and mixed seperately at different locations. All of his previous movies have been recorded and mixed live, on the fly", owner Paul Levy commented.

Scoring mixer Shawn Murphy utilized an array of Advanced Audio's ProTools HDX gear on the movie. The scoring system was configured as follows:

96ch HDX(3) 192khz scoring system

Identical backup scoring system

8ch HDX(1) 192khz EQ system (for master EQ during mixing)

16ch HDX(1) 96khz prelay system for stage playback

 

The mix sessions at James Newton Howard's studio utilized the following configuration:

64ch 192khz HDX(3) Orchestal playback system

64ch 192khz HDX(3) Mix system

64ch 96khz HDX(2) Conversion system (SRC)

 

All recording and playback was done while locked to Antelope Audio's 10mhz Atomic Reference & Trinity Master studio clock.

 

"There was an unprecedented security level surrounding this movie for obvious reasons,

so there are no photos of any gear, or work in progress. We had guards escort our techs at the Disney lot

while moving hard drives from their vault to the edit rooms." Paul Levy commented.

Advanced Audio ships complete turnkey ProToos HDX scoring system to Caracas Venezuela for the recording of "El Libertador"

Advanced Audio recently provided a complete ProTools HDX scoring system to record a 200 piece orchestra in Caracas, Venezuela. Noted L.A. Philharmonic conductor and native, Gustavo Dudamel, conducted the orchestra, whose members got their start in the world of orchestral music through youth programs fostered by Dudamel. 

Advanced Audio veteran Chris Miles flew to Caracas to ensure a smooth scoring session. This is the first time anyone has scored with a full orchestra in Venezuela. ProTools recordist Erik Swanson was instrumental in making all of this happen. Lengthy pre-planning was necessary as there were no second chances thousands of miles from Los Angeles.

The main orchestral system was an 80 I/O ProTools HDX rig, running @192k. The system recorded to a single RAID10 volume. New 2Tb/6gb sec Hitachi SATA drives were utilized, since the data rate @192k going to a single volume is pretty huge.

Another identical system was online as a hot spare. A third system was used for file backup/transfer. 

Finally, a ProTools HD1 system was utilized for video playback.

The film is currently being mixed in Los Angeles for release in the near future.

Advanced Audio First to rent Avid HD MADI Interface

Advanced Audio recently added the Avid HD MADI ProTools HD Interface to its' arsenal of post-production rental gear. The HD MADI Interface allows up to 64 channels of MADI I/O to connect directly to Avid ProTools HD Core and Accel cards. Advanced Audio owner Paul Levy comments: 

"The Avid HD MADI interface is a huge time saver for rental system installations that we do in post studios who utilize the Avid/Euphonix System 5 digital console. The SRC on BOTH the inputs and outputs solved a huge problem we had when clients wanted to do SRC, especially at high sample rates. In the past, all we had available to convert AES digital signals was the Euphonix 727, which has very good SRC, but at high sample rates we had to chase down digital snats and ticks which can take the entire session down. The very first session we used the Avid HD MADI went perfectly, and there hasnt been one tick or pop heard since."
