Portland Audio Studio

Post Production sound company Portland Audio upgrades to Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment 7.1.4.

Newly rebranded Oxford Circus post production sound company Portland Audio, has upgraded one of its suites to Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment 7.1.4. The studio was designed in conjunction with HHB Communications and Msonic, Finland, and features an Avid ProTools S6 M40 16 fader console, complete Genelec monitoring system and a Mac based Dolby Atmos Home Entertainment RMU.  The suite also offers a spacious and well equipped VO booth with line of sight to clients and engineers, and enough room for two artists.

Portland Audio’s lead Sound Designer and Senior Short Form Mixer Claire Bilyard says ‘The room sounds amazing. It’s a perfect studio for high end, long form projects with multiple clients attending, alongside my branding and trailer work.  The creative possibilities of immersive audio are really exciting’.

With the welcoming open space of the reception and break out area and private kitchen, Portland Audio’s laid back boutique environment offers not only the technology, but the creative space required to finish a mix in comfort.

In addition to their newly upgraded Atmos suite, the post house offers a second Stereo studio with VO booth and an Avid S1 console, ideally suited to short form.

Claire observes that ‘whilst there was a huge growth in home working due to the pandemic and the desire for flexible working, this comes with some obvious drawbacks. The most significant of which is the need to assess and sign off mixes under studio conditions with creatives and clients present.  We are excited to offer Portland Audio’s studios as a space in which to do this’.
