Elysium score produced with Pro Tools|HDX

Avid Pro Tools|HDX was the digital audio workstation (DAW) used to produce the score for Elysium, one of this summer’s most hotly anticipated films.

John Rodd (pictured), the film’s Score Recording and Mixing Engineer, selected Pro Tools|HDX for this project.

“When collaborating on large, complex mixing projects such as the score for Elysium, Pro Tools|HDX is my obvious choice,” said Rodd. “The system lets me quickly and efficiently share, edit and mix audio, while streamlining workflows. I can use a single rig to do incredibly elaborate score mixes, and simultaneously print many stem mixes in a single pass.”

“John Rodd’s success with Elysium is yet another example of why it is so critical for industry professionals to rely on the industry’s most proven, trusted solutions that integrate into the most complex workflow environments,” said W. Sean Ford, Vice President of Marketing and Chief Marketing Officer, Avid. “Elysium is an audibly stunning film and includes an impressive array of technical elements, making Pro Tools|HDX the ideal tool to help bring Amon’s music composition and Blomkamp’s vision to life.”

Avid has teamed up with Rodd for a four-part video series on pro mixing. In ‘Pro Mixing Without Limits: John Rodd,’ Rodd discusses staying ahead in the industry, using Pro Tools|HDX on Elysium, and collaborating with colleagues across the globe. The video series can be viewed on the Avid website.
