    Red Wall Live

    Saturday 16th December was the second of the gig nights me and my colleagues at Red Wall Studios have put on, under the Red Wall Live brand.

    Dolby Atmos Horror Noise

    In an earlier blog I discussed what Dolby Atmos is, and what it is all about. Over the past few weeks I have been exploring more of what Dolby Atmos can do.

I tried it, but it never really interested me as I haven’t got access to 360 video cameras to create video content. It has since been updated considerably and is now included within the latest version of Avid Pro Tools software,…

There are numerous ways available in which to share files and projects between collaborators, such as Dropbox and the like. However, I am more interested to see what is available for real-time, or live collaboration between studios and artists. One…

    It was fantastic to welcome Katherine McDermott into Red Wall Studios today. A voice reel and a couple of scripts for her portfolio were recorded. Microphone used for the vocal recording was an SE2200a through a DBX 376 preamp. I later edited and mixed to backing tracks. Here is the finished voice reel:
