18 May – Singapore's Mediacorp has just launched its new audio production service, the Movie-Mixing Studio (MMS).
Designed by audio engineer and studio designer, David Hawkins, the 70-square metre MMS is the first certified Auro3D and Auromax mixing studio in Southeast Asia.
It is the most advanced sound mixing studio owned by Mediacorp's music and sound mixing unit, Audio Post, and was described as a musician's dream studio for producing any digital audio format.
Doreen Neo, Mediacorp's Head of Studios, said in a press statement: "With the first certified Auro3D and Auromax Movie Mixing Studio (MMS) in Southeast Asia, we can now provide the highest possible audio standard, sound design, music composing services all under one roof; in short, a one-stop shop for audio post production services for our business partners."
Sound mixing is an important part of the production process and Audio Post has been producing music and sound effects for local television since 1979, and began providing their services to local and regional film industries in the 1980s.
The official launch ceremony was held yesterday at the Mediacorp Campus. About 150 guests attended the ceremony, including the Senior Minister of State from the Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Health, Mr. Chee Hong Tat.
Jack Neo, founder and CEO of JTeam, one of the companies that have been collaborating with Audio Post for over a decade, was also at the ceremony to congratulate Audio Post for bringing music and sound mixing standards to a new high in Singapore.
