Clearcut Sound Studios receives Dante

Scrub has supplied a full Dante networking solution to Clearcut Sound Studios’ audio post-production facilities.

The recent upgrade to Clearcut Sound Studios includes the installation of a Dante audio networking system, providing real-time audio routing between four mix rooms and studio computers. Dante, an IP based audio transmission format, is capable of supporting 100s of digital audio channels at resolutions up to 24-bit uncompressed, and sample rates up to 96kHz. Scrub also supplied Clearcut Sound Studios with HP Z820 studio computers configured with Yamaha AIC128-D Dante Accelerator PCI Express audio interface cards, and Yamaha MY-16-AUD Dante expansion cards which are fitted to their DM2000 mixing consoles. All of the Dante interfaces are connected to a Gigabit Ethernet switch with standard network cabling, creating a network that allows almost unlimited audio routing between the four studio systems. The upgrade was complemented by Scrub supplying the latest Steinberg Nuendo 6 software and upgrades to the latest 64-bit plug-ins, including the Waves Platinum plug-in bundle.

Clearcut Sound Studios’ managing director Chris Wrigglesworth states: “The upgrades Scrub provided give us ultra-fast speed and flexibility and a cutting edge networking architecture that we can rely on. This was part of a major upgrade to the studio as a whole, which results in more spacious mixing environments with the fastest, state-of-the-art digital audio mixing infrastructure available. Our clients have noted the benefits of the new facilities and we are very pleased with the support and services that Scrub provided throughout the process.”
