Andy Gray Mixes 'TT3D Closer To The Edge' Film Score on Unity Audio Rocks and Boulders
Producer and song writer Andy Gray has written the film score for the new documentary film 'TT3D Closer To The Edge' at his Isle of Wight studio, 'Real Noize' using a 5.1 Unity Audio monitoring system comprising of the Rocks and forthcoming Boulder active monitors.
The film tells the story of last years Isle of Man TT motorcycle race, featuring Guy Martin who now has his own BBC television program called 'The boat that Guy built'. A combination of orchestral arrangements, record in Prague, and electronic music which Andy is renowned for truly captures what the competitors feel while hurtling around the 23 mile TT circuit according to racer Coner Cummins.Hundreds of cameras used to capture the event, and 500 hours of footage were edited to portray the legendary dangerous race that has claimed many lives over the years. The film also boasts Japan's latest 3D techniques in a subtle but effective way to highlight the speed and tension of the event even more.
Mixed by Air Studios Jake Jackson at Andy's studio on the Rocks and Boulders the new 5.1 system performed admirably. Andy, a committed fan of The Rocks added the three Boulders for the L,C,R and used his everyday nearfield Rocks to handle the surround channels.
“ The Rocks have become the only monitor I use now in my studio from writing through to the mix stage, I totally trust them and I no longer feel the need to reference to any other monitor. The Boulders sound massive and more than twice the size of the Rock, the same open super detailed sound as the Rock.. and a bit more.. the bottom end is unreal for a speaker of this size.. and like the Rock really wide.”
