Sound Design Delivers GRAMMY® Awards with Fairlight

PostTue Mar 14, 2017 8:14 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that Sound Design Corporation uses Fairlight DAWs with Xynergi controllers to deliver audio for major award shows, including the 59th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. For more than 20 years, Fairlight has helped Sound Design Corporation deliver all its audio post and broadcast projects, including variety and award shows, television series and specials, documentaries, shorts, commercials, video games and more.

Led by Founder and CEO Paul Sandweiss, Sound Design Corporation relies on 12 Xynergi systems, with six in daily use at the company’s Los Angeles facility and two in daily use on TBS’ “Conan,” for which Sound Design Corporation built the audio broadcast facility. Sound Design Corporation also uses four Xynergi systems in flypacks to record award shows and specials, such as the American Music Awards, the BET Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, the Emmy Awards, the Kennedy Center Honors, the Soul Train Music Awards and more.

“We mix sound, music and voice over for all audio packages on Fairlight ahead of time for live and pre-taped award shows and specials and deliver them to the client for playback,” explained Sandweiss. “For pre-taped shows, live shows that will be re-aired later or special deliverables, we also multitrack and video record the events on-site with Fairlight systems and post the entire shows at Sound Design afterwards. This includes dialogue clean up, edits, smoothing out the audience, sweeteners, bumpers, sound effects design, music mixing and more. These are high profile shows with top talent, so our deliverables need to match that. Reliability is number one, and failure is definitely not an option.”
