Our new Dolby Atmos mix room

Some of you may have heard about it already on Social media, but I wouldn't be a gearslut at heart if I didn't post (brag...) about it here.
I have tons of pictures so expect a full construction diary soon.

A few details and specs :

Room volume is 585 cubic meters
Screen base=7m (1:1.85 ratio)
Screen channels : 3 x JBL 4675C
LFE channel : 2x JBL 5628
Surround and top: 34 x JBL 9320
Monitoring is through a QSC Core110 sending QLan to a stack of QSC amps (somewhere around 30 000 Watts of amplification).

Console is a hybrid System5 and S6. Both can be installed in ANY position on the desk. The whole console chassis is a Frozen Fish Design sit-stand, so now I can get rid of back ache while mixing standing up.

The default DAW setup is Nuendo or ProTools on 2x 2019 Mac Pro (12 core), and the stem recorder is running on a HP Z HDX2 machine.

We have full DCP playback (up to Atmos obviously) from a Dolby IMS3000 media block in a 15000 Lumens Christie CP2215.

Lots of space for the clients, and we can lower the desk below sitting position and move the front couches and place them behind the console for a super comfy "projection mode".

nice room, congratulations Steven!

Great idea with the possibility to stand while mixing. I have an adjustable desk in my office, which was one of the best decisions ever.
The desks of our video editors are adjustable for sitting and standing as well.

Congratulations and all the best for the new room. Does the S6 works fine with Nuendo?

Still evaluating that part. There are obviously some features that exist for PT and not for Nuendo (VCA spill for example).

Any reason why you didn´t opt for the Nuage system?

The Nuage is a great system, but this is a studio that my partners and I can't fill on our own as Re-recording Mixers (would love to, but I'm a realist) . Most freelance Mixers who would be coming in on behalf of their producer clients want to mix on ProTools, and that means going down the S6 road.
The cost of the whole thing is such that I can't be taking the risk of not having what most clients would be expecting, even if I will be mostly mixing with Nuendo on projects that we handle in-house.

Ya, I understand. Hope everything goes well and smooth! All the best!

Yes sorry that was because the first posts were using pictures hosted on my Google account, and it seems that they can't be seen by all.
Scroll down for more recent pictures hosted here on GS.
