Scrub equips Angell Sound with Avid S6

UK – Scrub, a division of HHB specialising in post production, has provided Angell Sound with an Avid S6 control surface.

Scrub configured and installed a 24-fader S6 M10 control surface and Pro Tools upgrades in Angell’s Dolby certified and 5.1 equipped Studio 2 on Wardour Street in Soho, London. Angell Sound’s award-winning sound designers have been creating high-quality content for advertising campaigns and long-form projects, as well as producing and composing commercial and production music since 1979.

Sound designer Dave Robinson is finding that the S6 provides a huge enhancement in workflow speed and power: “Efficiency is ever more important in my day-to-day managing of sessions. Whether it be a simple radio campaign or a full-blown cinema mix, the more easily I can move around the console the more I can focus on the mix. So when deciding on a new control surface, I wanted something that was going to be a complete extension of the Pro Tools system and that’s exactly what I have found in the Avid S6.”

Noting stylish aesthetics and enhanced visual feedback, Dave finds the S6’s colour coding and the ability to spill plug-in parameters and VCA fader groups across the console surface as extremely powerful features: “The colour coding of tracks and plug-ins across the surface means that you know exactly where you are within a mix at a glance and gives you total control over all of the parameters in an instant. Also, being able to adjust the same function from several different places is a nice feature too, whether it is on the control modules or touchscreen.”

Dave comments that the Scrub team was extremely helpful throughout the project, providing excellent installation, training and after-sales support: “HHB/Scrub have been a great help in getting me up to speed. The installation was both quick and seamless and I was up and running in no time. As well as the support and advice I received during set-up, the after-sales support has been there to help me fine-tune any queries I had following the installation.”

Head of Scrub sales Ben Scully comments: “Angell Sound has been creating high-quality work for the world's biggest brands and clients for decades and they are highly respected in the industry. Dave is doing some very unique and interesting things with the S6 that highlights his creativity and the versatility of the S6 platform.”
